To make four, ¼ pound patties you will need one pound of beef.
For eight patties you will need two pounds of beef. I prefer to use grass fed, organic lean ground beef.
To make four patties, peel 5 to 6 large cloves of garlic. To make eight patties, peel 7 to 10 cloves. Siberian garlic is an excellent choice because of the extra large cloves. Georgia Fire is a favorite as well for its spicy hot flavor. Chop up your cloves using what ever your garlic chopper of choice may be. I prefer my mini chopper because I grind lots of garlic and its super handy and cleaned in the dishwasher.
Light your grill to preheat.
Place your ground up garlic in a large bowl and add the ground beef. Salt and pepper to taste. If you haven’t already washed your hands, this is a good time to do it. Mix the garlic into the beef by hand and form into patties, evenly distributing the garlic into the beef. Place patties onto a plate and you are ready to grill.
You should always eat lots of garlic whenever you eat meat, because it helps keep your cholesterol level down.
