Caribbean Burger with Mango Salsa
SAN ANTONIO – We all need a trip to the Bahamas right now. Well, this burger will take you there!
Dr Shalene McNeill with Beef loving texans shows us how to do it in the recipe below.
The fresh mango salsa creates a crisp, flavorful flavor, and the jerk seasoning adds some heat. For even more flavor, the burgers can be served open-faced on slices of Hawaiian or challah bread, or skip the bread and sandwich your burger between pineapple rings instead.
Pro tip: Keep in mind that you are wasting 1 ounce for every 4 ounces of hamburger meat you cook. Watch the video above for more hamburger tips.
1 1/2 pounds of ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
For the mango salsa:
1 large mango, peeled, roughly chopped (about 1 cup)
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
Combine ground beef and jerk seasoning in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 3/4 inch thick patties.
Place the patties on the wire rack over medium coals covered with ash. Broil, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (or over medium heat on a preheated gas grill, covered, 13 to 14 minutes), until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally in the center registers 160 ° F, turning from time to time. Season with salt to taste.
Cook’s tip: Cooking times are for fresh or well thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 ° F. Color is not a reliable indicator of how good ground beef is.
Meanwhile, combine salsa ingredients in medium bowl, mixing lightly. Serve the burgers with salsa.
