Hungry for Green Chile Burgers!

Hey, since starting the Dukan Diet I have been astonished at all the good food that I can have daily. AND I still loose weight.

Just yesterday I was SO in the mood for a Green Chile New Mexico style burger. So, I went to the store to get some high quality low fat ground beef. Then I found a great sale on stew meat. I thought about asking the butcher to grind up the meat, then I thought it would be good to make the beef in nice bite-sized yummy tasting bits.

I already had a can of Hatch Chiles in my pantry. I also would use fresh roasted or frozen Hatch Chiles in this recipe. The ONLY chiles to use are REAL New Mexico Hatch Chiles though. Do NOT settle for anything else. Seriously.

So, here is a quickly prepared then slowly simmered totally satisfying beefy green chile dinner.


Here are your ingredients

Beef, Hatch green chiles, cumin, beef seasonings, onions, tomatoes and dressing.

Few Ingredients but QUALITY!

  • 3-4 pounds beef, stew quality
  • 1 large can Hatch Green Chiles, Lightly cut up the chiles
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 tablespoon meat spices, brand up to you!

Fast Prep, Slow Low Long Simmer!

Prep time: 2 hours
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 3 hours 30 min
Yields: Six hearty portions

Prep

  1. Use a good Dutch Oven. Sprinkle the bottom with salt and heat to high. Place the first pieces of meat in the bottom of the pot. Keep them spaced far enough a part. You will not need anymore salt. (for searing the beef, that is!)
  2. As the beef sears, pile the seared browned pieces to the side and add more. Continue until all pieces of the beef are browned on the outside. See how the pot is partially off the burner so the cooked pieces do not burn.
  3. Add a can of tomatoes. I don't show this in the pictures but the tomatoes are very important!
  4. Add the WHOLE large can of Hatch Green Chiles (about 4 cups....seriously!) You may use mild, medium, or hot, depending on your family's tastes. I use medium but place hot sauce on the table for those who want it hotter!
  5. Add the cumin and meat seasonings. Use whatever beefy meat seasonings you like. I use a local blend but there are plenty of others to purchase at your favorite store. Blend this all with a big old wooden spoon.
  6. Turn the Dutch Oven down to low and put the lid on. Simmer for at least an hour. You can simmer longer! The long simmer will make sure the beef is nice and tender.
  7. The dressing I used is made up of fat free yogurt and a brand of mayo by Walden that is calorie and fat free. (I have NO idea why it tastes so good, but it does!)
  8. Serve in a lettuce leaf with SIrachi Sauce and Green Tobasco Sauce. Also, I throw in a sliced tomato because we like that!

Browning the Beef

Hot Dutch Oven.  Salt on the first go around stops any sticking and burning. No salt will be needed for the next batches of beef.
