Notes

*The sugar alcohols from the Besti sweetener are not included in the nutritional information since most subtract to calculate net carbs. 
*To prepare this in advance, simmer your burger meat and mix up the sauce a day prior and store it in the fridge. Then, if you prefer it warm, heat the beef mixture in the microwave before topping your lettuce and veggies. Top with your cold burger sauce.
