Keto Campfire BBQ Burger

  • Author: Raj
  • Prep Time: 7-10 min
  • Cook Time: 5 min
  • Total Time: 15 min
  • Yield: 6 burgers 1x


This hamburger patty mix is simple, allowing for the meat and herb flavors to be the star of the show!



Hamburger patties:

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil (minced)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh oregano (minced)
  • 1.52 tsp salt (I lean towards 2 tsp)
  • 12 tsp pepper (my personal preference is closer to 1 tsp)




  1. Mix all hamburger patty ingredients together by hand in a large bowl.
  2. Divide meat equally into 6 portions (1/3 lb patties) and form each into a thin patty (1/4-1/3″ thick) either in your hands or by putting each between two sheets of parchment paper and pressing flat with a frying pan or the like.
  3. To cook, preheat BBQ or cast iron pan (while camping I used cast iron pans over the fire); gently place burger patty on cooking surface for 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat – DO NOT play with your meat:  allow the first side to sear before flipping, turning, etc.  This will allow the burger to release from the grill/pan without sticking and falling apart.  Watch the video.  The only one that fell apart was one that accidentally got caught between the grill when I flipped it.
  4. Flip and finish cooking on second side.  With a minute or two left, place cheese slice on patties to melt.
  5. Build your burger the way you like.
  6. Take a photo, post it to Instagram, and tag us @theprimaldesire ’cause we wanna see these bad boys!


  • Use whatever herbs you want
  • If using dried herbs, use a total of 2 tsp dried (vs. 2 Tbsp fresh)
  • These measurements do not need to be exact.  For example, if your grocery store/butcher has a ground pork/beef premix, go with it.
  • Remove meat from the refrigerator 1/2 hour in advance of cooking.
  • If camping:  form patties, put in a large zip-lock bag separated by parchment paper, and freeze prior to leaving.  This will help keep everything in your cooler cold especially if you’re lacking room for ice in your cooler!
