Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Make the patties

  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

In a medium bowl, combine the meat and seven-spice blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into four [eight] 1-inch-thick patties. 

2

Cook the patties

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the patties. 

Beef, lamb, or pork: Cook, turning once, until browned and cooked to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes per side. 

Turkey or chicken: Cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side.

Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the salad. 

3

Make the beet salad

  • Cut a small corner from the beet packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Rinse the beets and pat dry with a paper towel; cut the beets in half, then thinly slice. 
  • Core and thinly slice the apple. 
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

In a medium bowl, stir together the sherry vinegar and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Add the beets, apple, walnuts, and basil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the beet salad and patties to individual plates and top each patty with 1½ teaspoons spicy green harissa. Serve the remaining harissa on the side.
