80% lean hamburger meat
4 oz Worcestershire sauce
I medium onion
1 cooking bag


Slice Onion. Place cooking bag in large baking dish or pan. Make hamburger into patties and place in cooking bag. Cover with Worcestershire sauce and finish by completely covering meat with water until level with pan and meat is covered. Add onions to top of meat and close bag with tie. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes if fresh meat. If frozen meat, cook for one hour and 15 minutes.


The only carbs is the bun and the few grams if you add a slice of cheese. These are flavorful without having to place on a grill. You can use the cooked onions to spice up the taste. Add any fresh vegetables that you want to decorate and use the condiments sparingly due to the added calories and fat content. Can use more Worcestershire sauce if you choose to have more flavor. There are no calories or carbs in the sauce.

Hello Two Painful,

Yes it is suggested that heart patients stay away from eating a lot of red meat but if you buy the leanest hamburger meat that your grocer offers and you bake and not fry them as directeted in this recioe then that should help eliviate some of the fat. If you are not interested in the seasoning of the sauce then you can just but the burger patties in the oven on a broiler rack or pan. Anything to help! Ask away.

Thanks for question! Hope that helped answer your question.

Danielle :)
