Terry's Turferrific Spices
- 10 pounds Angus ground chuck
- 1 tablespoon each paprika, onion and garlic powder
- Pinch each dark chocolate powder, cayenne, cumin, anise and turmeric.
- Himalayan or Hawaiian salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 20 quality kaiser rolls, toasted on grill
Preheat a grill to medium heat.
Mix the meat, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, chocolate powder, cayenne, cumin, anise and turmeric in a large bowl. Divide the mixture into individual burgers and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Grill the burgers to desired doneness and serve on toasted rolls.
Cooks Note: Remember that cooking us an adventure, so add your own spices. Use quality cheese, allowing it to melt. I like to add grilled onions and a sauce. If you add a sauce, you might want to put pickles on the side, as they will add a steely taste. Experiment with sauces made on your own, as it will be more gratifying and remember to have fun.
