      I had the butcher grind the meat. I also cooked over a charcoal grill, and it was delicious! I served with buns, to encourage the entire family to eat it instead of just me. I decreased the amount of minced onion by half, and felt the onion taste was still strong enough. I served these topped with lettuce, avocado, and my sugared jalapenos. Fabulous! Made for Zaar 123 Tag game.
