Cardiac Burgers

This would be a good lunch if you're going to chop down trees all afternoon. For most of us this will have to be a rare treat.

8 servings

8 ounces bacon
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound lean ground pork
1/3 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons pepper sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce

Cook the bacon till crispy. Dice finely and reserve fat

Bronze the tomato paste over medium-high heat

Combine the three meats and 1 tablespoon of fat and mix well.
