Firecracker Burgers with Cooling Lime Sauce

Print Friendly

From Go Texan, this recipe is spicy, just the way we like it, with some Asian and jerk flavors doing the work.  The piquant flavor of the lime sauce will taste especially good with the trimmings, peppery leaves of watercress.

A spicy, Caribbean twist is this burger's appeal.

Firecracker Burgers with Cooling Lime Sauce

1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck

1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grated lime peel
1/4 teaspoon salt

4 sesame seed sandwich rolls, split and toasted
1 cup watercress or mixed spring greens

Combine ground beef, curry, jerk seasoning and salt in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Shape into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Place patties on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes to medium (160-degree) doneness, turning occasionally until not pink in center and juices show no pink color.

Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in small bowl; set aside.

Spread sauce on cut sides of rolls. Place a burger on bottom half of each roll; top evenly with watercress. Close sandwiches.

Makes 4 burgers.
