NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds 90 percent lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red or yellow curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 hamburger buns, split, toasted
  • Sweet potato chips, for serving (optional)
  • Pickled okra or other pickled vegetables, for serving (optional)
Directions

Mix the cucumber, yogurt, cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Set aside while you make the burgers.

Combine the beef, onion, garlic, curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a bowl and mix with your hands until just combined. Form into four 4-inch-wide patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

Heat the olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the burger patties and cook, turning once, until cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes for medium.

Place the burgers on the buns. Stir the cucumber-yogurt mixture and spoon on top. Serve the burgers with sweet potato chips and pickled okra.
