California Burgers from Marcelle Bienvenu
Updated: Jan 4
We are now into the Summer grilling months. One category of foods I have not entered were Hamburgers. I figured that everyone knows how to make burgers. I came across a couple of different hamburgers from Marcelle Beinvenu. So this week, I will feature two of them here.
1 pound lean Ground Beef
1 pound lean Ground Lamb
1/2 pound Ground Veal
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
Salt & Black Pepper to taste
2 medium-size, ripe Haas Avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed
1 tablespoon fresh Lime Juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped Cilantro
Hot Sauce to taste
4 to 6 Toasted Buns
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meats, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into patties. Grill (or broil) for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until all the pink disappears.
In a small bowl, combine the avocados, lime juice, cilantro and hot sauce, and season well with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Spread the avocado mixture on the buns and place a hamburger patty on top. Dress with grilled onions, tomatoes, herbs or lettuce.
