Jerk seasoning brings the spice while a refreshing lime sauce balances the whole thing out in this burger recipe courtesy of the Ohio Beef Council and "Beef. It's What's for Dinner"!
FIRECRACKER BURGERS WITH COOLING LIME SAUCE
1-1/2 pounds Ground Beef
6 sesame seed sandwich rolls, split, toasted
1 cup watercress or mixed spring greens
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grated lime peel
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine Ground Beef and seasoning ingredients in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into six 1/2-inch thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in small bowl; set aside.
Spread sauce on cut sides of rolls. Place one burger on bottom half of each roll; top evenly with watercress. Close sandwiches.
Test Kitchen Tips: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
