Kate’s Ultimate Salsa Burger
Press 1/4 lb. ball of ground sirloin into a disc, (I use a sandwich plate, the raised circle on the bottom makes very nice patties.)They should be about 1/4 inch thick.
Spread patty with 1tsp. of steak sauce, season with salt, (kosher)
fresh ground pepper, garlic powder.
Place burgers in-between waxed paper, and put in fridge until ready to grill.
6 ripe roma tomatoes
2 lg. garlic cloves, minced
2T. fresh cilantro, corsely chopped
1 fresh japaleno, seaded, and minced
juice of one lime, plus zest
1 sm Vidalia onion, minced
fresh ground pepper
this will make approx. 1 pint of salsa
Butter and grill kaiser rolls until golden brown, set aside. Grill burgers to desired doneness, place a slice of pepper-jack cheese on burger, place tinfoil tent over them and set aside.
TO ASSEMBLE- put your prefered condoments on burger. place a large spoonful of the salsa ontop of the cheese, a nice pile of iceburg lettus and dig in!! A little slice of avocado is wonderful with this burger too. I usually will make some homemade tortilla chips with this burger as a side Don't forget a nice glass of Sutterhome Merlot, it pairs very nicely with the spice of the burgers
