One of the most important aspects of the Whole30 diet is paying attention to labels and buying the best 100% grass-fed, organic meats whenever possible.

During “Whole30 March” I’ve relied on my friends at ButcherBox to fill my fridge with grass-fed beef, free range organic chicken and Whole30 approved bacon.

If you’re not familiar, ButcherBox is a high quality meat subscription service that delivers your choice of beef, chicken, pork, or a combination of meats, right to your door every 30 or 60 days! You can also add items like burgers, uncured sugar free bacon (that’s Whole30 approved and paleo!) and breakfast sausage.

I received my first ButcherBox two years ago, in April 2016, and have been hooked ever since!

How To Make Whole30 Hamburgers with Sesame Scallion Sauce

The inspiration for the sesame scallion sauce came from my sister-in-laws mom, who posted a similar recipe on Facebook. The recipe looked delicious and I knew I could easily make it Whole30 by eliminating the sugar and subbing the soy sauce with coconut aminos.

Now I know you have questions.

What are coconut aminos?

Coconut Aminos is a rich, salty, slightly sweet sauce made from coconut sap. It’s similar to soy sauce and tamari and is gluten free. It’s a great substitute for soy sauce, for those on the Whole30 or Paleo diet.

Where are coconut aminos in the grocery store?

Coconut aminos can be found in the grocery store right next to the soy sauce. Can’t find them in your local grocery store? Grab a bottle of coconut aminos online.

Once you have your coconut aminos, mix it with coconut oil, sesame oil and scallions to make the sauce. For the Whole30 hamburgers, mix the grass-fed ground beef with salt, pepper and ginger, then grill them up. Heat the sauce and pour it over the grilled burgers, then wrap the burgers in lettuce leaves. Easy as that, dinner is on the table!
