Spicy Thai Beef Burger


Don’t worry be happy.

Sometimes we all need a reminder to be happy.

I’ve had a long spring break and I feel well rested. I’m delighted to be back in routine and you’ll be glad to know that I have a few upcoming projects for Dubai Fit Foodie so stay tuned.

This delicious oriental burger is perfect for a filling lunch or dinner. They are light and healthy and you can replace the beef with chicken or turkey if you’re trying to cut down on the red meat. The aromas from this marinade will leave you salivating before the meal is ready. It’s so fresh and the spice from the chili gives a perfect kick.

Enjoy x
