  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, gently toss together the chuck and sirloin in a large bowl, making sure not to overwork the mixture.
  3. Combine the paprika, coriander seed, garlic, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the beef and fold gently to combine. Form the beef into four 3/4-inch-thick patties, each about 4 inches in diameter. Sprinkle both sides generously with salt and a few grinds of pepper.
  4. Place the patties in the hot skillet; do not press down with a spatula. When the patties are seared and browned on one side, flip and cook on the other side until browned, about 3 1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  5. Assemble the burgers by topping with sliced roasted red peppers and using your favorite buns and condiments.
