Cumin-Spiced Burgers with Harissa Mayo July 9, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

Ever since I made a harissa lamb recipe, I have been looking for more ways to use this delicious item. I stumbled across this recipe and since the hubs loves burgers I knew I had to give it a shot. These were super tasty and not as out there as the name sounds.

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds ground chuck
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons harissa
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 large red onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Eight 6-inch oval rolls, split
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • Tomato and cucumber slices

Directions:

In a large bowl, gently mix the ground chuck with 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper, 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of the harissa, the cumin, garlic powder and thyme. Form the meat into eight 3/4-inch-thick oval patties. In a medium bowl, toss the onion slices with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill pan. Cook the onions over moderate heat, turning once, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Grill the burgers over moderately high heat, turning once, until medium, about 8 minutes. Grill the rolls until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise with the caraway and the remaining 2 tablespoons of harissa; season with salt and pepper.

Spread the mayo on the rolls. Top with the patties, onions, tomato and cucumber; close the sandwiches and serve.
