Pairs well with:


Bright and full-bodied, this Zinfandel wine is a curious contradiction in tastes.


1/2 cup roasted red pepper and tomato bruschetta
2 anchovies fillets (finely mashed)
1/4 cup capers (drained)
3 large cloves of garlic (garlic press)
1/2 cup romano cheese grated
1 tablespoon dried oregeno (crushed between palms)
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 1/2 lbs. ground beef 75% lean



In a large bowl, add bruschetta, anchovies, capers, 2 cloves of garlic (through the garlic press), 1/2 cup cheese, dried oregeno, and red pepper flakes. Mix well. Add ground beef, stir all until mixed well. Shape into 6 patties and grill over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side until desired doneness. Toast rolls. When toasted remove from grill and rub last garlic clove over grilled bread. Put hamburgers on roll and serve.
