1 lb ground bear meat

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 cup sliced bell peppers (green, red, orange, yellow)

1 egg

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1/4 tsp minced garlic


– Combine bear meat, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, pepper, bell peppers and egg in a bowl and mix until well blended.

– Spray frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and use medium heat.

– Split meat into 4 or 5 equal-sized balls and flatten into patties.

– Cook until meat is brown all the way through (it’s important to not eat bear meat rare).

– While the meat is cooking, prepare the aioli sauce in a bowl by mixing mayonnaise, lemon juice and minced garlic together.

– Put the burger on your favorite bun (I used whole wheat) and spread aioli sauce on the bun. Garnish with your favorite burger fixings: lettuce, pickles, ketchup, onions, etc.
