  • Cover the bottom of a small skillet with the cumin; cook and stir over low heat for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • For chimichurri, combine the cumin, cilantro, parsley, vinegar, red pepper, and sea salt or coarse salt in a blender container.
  • Cover and blend on lowest speed, slowly adding the oil.
  • Combine ground beef, the 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the ground red pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  • Shape into 12 patties 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the chimichurri mixture in the center of each of 6 of the patties.
  • Place remaining patties on top and seal edges.
  • Place burger patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat.
  • Grill for 18 to 22 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning once halfway through grilling.
  • Brush rolls with some of the chimichurri sauce.
  • Top with burgers, remaining sauce, and tomatoes and onions.
