Paleo Style Lettuce Wrap Sliders

paleo style burgers for a bento box lunch

Protein portions for weight loss

No cheese, no bun.

While an estimated 90% of the general population tolerates gluten well, there are reasons to forgo it, and other "refined" (aka, heavily processed) starches, besides serious illnesses.

Want a reboot?  Testing for allergies or sensitivities? Maybe you just want to get your carbs from fruit and vegetables for a while.

You'll want avoid gluten due to its inflammatory properties.

These Paleo, or "animal style," sliders are the perfect size for protein portions. Wrapped up in large iceberg lettuce leaves, as shown above in the XL lidded container of our bento box container sets, these little burgers will provide carbs and fat from good sources, like tomatoes, avocado, and easy homemade mayonnaise made with eggs and olive oil.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef (substitute grass-fed bison if you're a Paleo stickler)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond meal, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of other herbs and finely chopped onions and garlic, to taste
  • Salt and pepper

How To

  1. With ingredients at room temperature, mix by hand gently until mixed.
  2. Form into even balls.
  3. Heat a sauté pan on medium heat and cook for a total of 20 minutes, flipping at minutes 1:00, 2:00, and then every two minutes, adjusting heat as necessary.

Remove from heat and enjoy! For any leftover patties, cool them to room temperature, then store them in your bento's lidded containers until you're ready to enjoy them

TIP!

For perfect portion control every time, form the patties to approximately 1.5 ounces, for patties that are closer to 1 ounce each when cooked. When cooled, pop your little sliders into one of your Portion Perfect prep n' store containers and they'll keep for days in the fridge.
