Juicy burgers are an American favorite. Barbecue sauce mixed in with the meat gives a barbecue flavor without having to heat up the grill. It also helps make these lower-fat burgers moist.
Ground buffalo meat is now available in most supermarkets. It has a real beef flavor and makes a great burger. If it's not available, look for grass-fed or 98 percent fat-free ground beef.
When shaping the burgers, handle them lightly. Don't squeeze or compact them. When cooking, don't press the burgers with a spatula.
Make a tomato and onion salad: Slice two ripe tomatoes, and arrange on dinner plates. Sprinkle each with a tablespoon of diced red onion and drizzle with a tablespoon of reduced-fat oil and vinegar dressing.
