Plum Juicy Burgers

Prep Time 5 minutes    Cook Time 10 minutes     Serves 4

IngredientsPlum Juicy Burgers

1 pound lean ground beef
1 tablespoon Plum Puree
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 hamburger buns, split and warmed
Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and condiments (optional)

Directions

In medium bowl, combine beef and plum puree; mix lightly but thoroughly. (For best flavor and appearance, form and cook patties immediately after mixing meat mixture.) Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Heat large nonstick skillet about 2 minutes over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color, turning once. Season with salt and pepper after turning. Serve burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato and condiments, if desired.

Tip: Patties also can be broiled or grilled. To broil, place patties on rack of broiler pan so surface of meat is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 9 to 12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color, turning once. To grill, place patties on grid over medium ash-covered coals. Grill 10 to 13 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once.

Plum Purée Substitution:
In a food processor, blend the 1 cup of canned prunes along with the liquid in a blender until it is a smooth puree.  Makes approximately 1 cup.
