Thousand Hills is my favorite ground beef and a nice treat for burger night. Grass-fed beef seems to cook up more tender and juicy than conventional beef, with a more neutral flavor. I love that the subtle spices of this burger seasoning come through.
This burger recipe would also be a delicious taco filling. Simply cook on the stovetop and add to your favorite taco fillings.
