So tonight I decided to have 2 100% beef hamburgers...this is my story:
So- I decide to cook them in my lean-griller (it gets a LOT of the fat out of foods)...so I put 2 in. They are really thin and not to big to begin with (roughly10.5cmx 7cm x .5cm). I go upstairs for a roughly 2 minutes, come back to see the fat/greece collector dish overflowing and excess greece/fat pooling all over the counter top. Now my little fat collecting dish is a fair size...so you can just imagine how much fat had to be in those things. It took roughly 5 paper towels just saturated in fat to get it all of the counter on top of that. In the end they were only about 8.5cm in diameter and not even .5cm in depth. Yeah, I'm VERY glad I decided to use my lean-griller instead of just thowing them into a frying pan to cook...yikes.
It also made me very glad I cooked 2. So tiny they were....
I also went shopping today, grabbed some flax seed- it was recommended to me by my doctor when I was diagnosed gluten-intollerant. I'm going to read up a bit on using first before I dive right in. I hear it can be quite a laxitive if not used properly...and that's not a good thing.
Well, that's all for now!
