3. A Healthy Burger

Everyone loves a juicy burger. But the classic juicy burger you probably had at your last barbecue was compliments of some not-so-lean beef. In the EatingWell Test Kitchen, we like to use 90%–lean ground beef or leaner. Good for the heart, but not so good for the juicy factor—lean beef can get incredibly dry. So I’m going to get creative about making healthier burgers by adding chopped vegetables and other things like barbecue sauce to the meat to boost flavor and moisture, and I’ll be careful not to overwork the meat while I’m mixing it up so it doesn’t become too tough.
