    Wonderful meal ideas! Its my husband’s first week on cohen so I’m really trying to find creative ways to make him nice meas despite the limits on the allowed seasoning. May i ask what you used to season the beef salpicao? Also, how you make the burger without egg? Thanks for sharing your meal ideas. Very inspiring!

      Hi! I season the salpicao with paprika and garlic powder, then deglaze the pan with a swig of water to make some sauce so it doesn’t remain dry. To bind the burger instead, I crush a cracker (usually Jacob’s) and soak it in water. Then I mix it with grated white onion and ground beef tenderloin. Goodluck!! 🙂
