Ingredients:

## 1 lb. Lean ground sirloin

## 1/4/ cup dry bread crumbs

## 2 green onions thinly sliced

## 1 lightly beaten egg

## 1 tbsp grated ginger root

## 2 tbsp light soy sauce

Now Follow Me:

Now comes the fun part!  Toppings for sirloin burgers are:

## Pineapple Pepper Salsa – using small pineapple pieces, a sweet red pepper chopped, 1/2 cup minced red onion, adding 2 tbsp of lime juice and extra-virgin olive oil.   Then add chopped fresh cilantro, and freshly ground pepper.

## English Cucumber Special – Mix 2 tbsp thinly sliced English cucumber, 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill, and 2 tbsp rice vinegar,  and lastly, sweet chipotle sauce.

## Use crisped romaine lettuce on top of the base of the sirloin burger.

## Now this is what we call a “real whopper sirloin burger.”

## For those who like mustard on their burgers, add a mix of 1/4 cup Dijon mustard and 2 tbsp of wasabi paste.

## “Steps to Healthy Life” feels this is an excellent meal in itself.  Use whole grain hamburger buns, and for fun add on a platter beefsteak tomatoes, roasted red peppers.  The sky is the limit when creating burgers.
