Jerk Burgers

As the weather warms up we love to fire up the grill and try different burgers as often as possible. For these Jerk Burgers we used our Jamaican Jerk Seasoning; as it has a dash of heat but won't burn your face off. If you're looking for more heat add a fresh jalapeno or Scotch bonnet chile pepper.

We tend to like our meat a bit more on the leaner side (either 90% or 96%) but for burgers we tend to drop down to a fatter meat. We usually use 80% lean so that the burgers are a bit juicier. When you start working your patties, remember to put them together quickly and be done. The more you handle proteins, the tougher the meat becomes.

This was a tasty burger and super-fast to cook on the grill. For a side you can go with one of our favorite - Sweet Potato Chili Fries. Fo even more of a flavor of the Caribbean some Tropical Mango Salsa.
