Paleo Ramen Burger
I can read your mind. Right now you're saying "there's nothing paleo about ramen". Well you're right, there's not. That's why we made our own "ramen" out of sweet potatoes. A quick spiralize, saute and you're ready to make some ramen buns that are packed with flavor, vitamins and are caveman approved!
Check out this quick video on how to make it.
Easy, right? The steps may seem a little long, but don't fret, these babies come together a lot faster than you think. You'll be noshing on this bad boy in no time flat.
PALEO RAMEN BURGER
Makes 4 servings
Sweet Potato Ramen Buns
- 4 sweet medium sweet potatoes (yams)
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons garlic granules
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil (such as Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil)
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 lb 80/20 grass-fed beef
- 4 tablespoons Spice Cave Land - Savory Garlic Seasoning
For the Sweet Potato Ramen Buns
Peel sweet potatoes and spiralizer using the noodle attachment. Place into a large bowl and season with garlic granules, salt and pepper.
Place a large skillet over medium heat, add avocado oil and allow to heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add sweet potato “noodles” and toss with tongs until “noodles”are slightly browned and cooked through, about 5-8 minutes. Add the cooked noodles back to the mixing bowl and chill for 5 minutes in the refrigerator.
Take the bowl out of the fridge and add 4 eggs. Toss lightly until eggs coat all of the noodles. Fill 8 ramekins (8 fl oz volume) about 3/4 of the way with the chilled noodles. Place a small piece of parchment paper over the top and place a weight such us a small mayo jar on top. Refrigerate again for 15 minutes or longer.
Now that your noodles are coated in egg, fill an 8 fl oz ramekin ¾ of the way withnoodles. Place a piece of parchment paper over the top of the noodles and place a weight of some sort over the parchment to allow the noodle to hold better ( we used our primal kitchen mayo jar as our weights).
Place in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes or longer. Remove from fridge and turn out each noodle patty into a skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook until golden brown, adjusting the heat so they don't burn. Flip and continue cooking until golden brown on both sides.
For the Burger Patty
- Mix the ground beef with the Land spice seasoning and divide equally into 4 patties.
- Pan sear on medium-high heat for 2 minutes per side, or until done to your liking
Assembly of Ramen Burger
- Start with a ramen bun and add chipotle mayo, arugula, burger patty, coleslaw and top with a ramen bun. Repeat with the remaining 3 and serve immediately.
