INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 6-8
  • Servings: 20
  • 3 lbs grass-fed lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 tbsp minced parsley, basil or chives
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp Worchestershire, soy or steak sauce or combination
  • 1/2 cup minced sweet onion or shallot
  • Tabasco to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin, curry or chilli powder
  • 1 tsp fleur de sel herbs de provence (always use this for most of my salt - you can just add some Italian seasoning to some kosher salt as well)
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 raw egg
  • whole grain buns (your choice really)
  • swiss cheese slices (optional and again your choice of cheese)
  • fresh vine ripened tomato slices (for garnish)
  • romaine lettuce (for garnish)
  • seasoned mayo (I use olive oil mayo and then thin it with lemon and/or lime juice and add a special chilli oil that I get from my local Vietnamese Restaurant. You can use whatever hot sauce or combination that works for you. I use this for all my sandwiches etc.)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix all ingredients together gently in bowl with our hands
  2. Handle the meat as little as possible
  3. Make small 1/4 lb balls and then gently shape into flat patties
  4. Separate patties with parchment paper squares
  5. Freeze in plastic freezer bags for future use if required
  6. Pre-heat grill to maximum temperature
  7. Spray one side of the patties with olive oil and sprinkle with a little fleur de sel herbs de provence and fresh ground pepper
  8. Place on grill with prepared side down
  9. Prepare the up side the same
  10. Grill for about 3 minutes per side for medium rare and and extra minute per side for each increasing degree of doneness
  11. Slice the buns and lightly toast on the grill open side down
  12. Place cheese slices on the patties for the last 2 minutes or so
  13. Spread the bun halves with the seasoned mayo
  14. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom bun half to soak up any juice and keep the bottom bun half from getting soggy
  15. Place patty on the lettuce leaf and top with tomato slice and the bun top
  16. Serve with yam fries or BBQ potato chips (again, your call)
