I find that using the broiler is alot faster than using conventional baking. I also use an ingredient called Hazel Hamout, which is a middle eastern blend of curry, cayenne pepper, edible flower petals, and rosemary. I found out about it on one of my trips to the Jean Talon market in Montreal. You're most likely to find it in Arab stores, because thst is where I found mine. You can mix curry and cayenne pepper together to give a similar taste. I'll list it below as optional, even though I use it all the time in this recipe.
- 3 lbs ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons mixed curry powder or 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- Preheat broiler at 500 degrees F.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Shape into small patties and put on broiler rack.
- Cook patties at 8 minutes each side.
These were great! Next time I might not broil quite as long.
Thanks Student for a nice switch-up to the normal grilled burger. DH said the combination of spices was nice and he could especially taste the cayenne. That's what I used, but next time will take your suggestion of mixing it up with the curry powder. Omitted the onion per family's request. Very very good. Glad I tagged for June 08's Camera-less Chef~
These were good but I must be a whimp as I thought they were too spicy. It was a good combination but I thought the spices were overpowering. Next time I would cut the spices down a bit.
