Buffalo (or Beef) Burger

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CountryLady

Buffalo tastes rich but is very lean - adding medium ground beef to it keeps these burgers juicy. We're fortunate to live near a buffalo ranch but if you don't & can't find it at the supermarket, a butcher may be able to order it for you - or you can substitute with all beef. This recipe comes from the Rebel House restaurant in Toronto which is known around town for its excellent buffalo burger.

Very good burgers! This is the first time I ever tried buffalo and I thought mixing it with ground beef is a really good idea. Thanks for sharing!
