2 pounds ground beef chuck

1 tablespoon kosher salt 

1 tablespoon cumin 

2 teaspoons smoked paprika 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

1 heart of romaine lettuce, finely sliced 

4 potato burger buns, toasted 

1 cup shredded Cheddar

1 on-the-vine tomato, sliced 

Pickled jalapenos, for topping, optional 

Sour cream, for topping, optional 


  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the chuck, salt, cumin and paprika. Divide into 4 even patties and drizzle with a touch of olive oil. Grill the burgers until deep brown and just barely cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  3. Pile a bed of lettuce on the bottom of each bun. Top with a patty, some cheese and a slice of tomato. Top with pickled jalapenos and sour cream if desired.
