Serving steak in our home is all time favorite, we are all beef lovers. That why, making a good steak is essential to make your loved one happy! We studied and practice numerous of time in order to achieve the taste you will in love with. Eating steak is just least a couple of making it, just like the cooking them. But

When you cook them well, they are tender and juicy and I promised that one is never enough. However a classic Beef Burger is high in calories, therefore we decide to make our very own healthy choice. We decided to choose the seasonal fruit – peach. It is sweet and juicy as compared to the onion.

Before we start to make the beef patties, let’s begin with the supporting roles. Getting the buns, mozzarella, peach and spinach ready is essential as they serve an important role, elevate the taste of the burger.

Beginning with the peach and spinach ready by washing them and dried away the water. Then we move on by frying the mozzarella, whereby we coated the mozzarella with egg and breadcrumb mix. We when on preparing the grilled peach. Before grilling the peach, we glaze it with honey and brown sugar to make it brown and glossy.

First of all, the colors and flavors just make me happy. These burgers are so bright and fresh, while still maintaining their hearty deliciousness. We have been dying to show you these burgers, but wanted to wait until closer to fall. So let’s get started!

Methods |

Balsamic Drizzle

Add vinegar and brown sugar, if using, to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a very low simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until liquid reduces by about half and is slightly syrupy.  Remove from heat, pour vinegar in a bowl or glass to pour, and set aside to cool and thicken.

Burgers

Divide the meat into 4 sections and form into 4 patties (or make 8 slider size burgers). Place the patties on a plate. Drizzle the burgers with balsamic vinegar.

In a large bowl, combine the Panko, flour, parmesan, salt, pepper and cayenne, mixing thoroughly to combine. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Take each slice of fresh mozzarella and coat it in the beaten egg. Then, dredge it through the bread crumb mix by pressing on both sides to adhere. Repeat with the remaining slices.

Drizzle the peaches with honey (or sprinkle with brown sugar).

Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium high heat, once hot, season the burgers with salt and pepper and then grill until your desired doneness. About 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove the burgers from the grill and and cover with foil to allow the burgers to rest while you fry the mozzarella.

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and sear both sides of the peaches for 1 to 2 minutes until just warmed, but still somewhat firm. Alternately you can also grill the peaches directly on the grill.

Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and when hot, fry the coated mozzarella, turning carefully once or twice, until golden and cheese begins to melt but still retains its shape, about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels.

To assemble, divide the burgers among buns. Top with a couple fresh basil leaves, a slice of fried mozzarella and a couple slices of caramelized peaches. Drizzle with balsamic glaze. Add the top bun.
