Tosa Middle Eastern Burgers
Makes 2 giant burgers feeds up to four
Prep time 10 minutes cook time 30 minutes
1-pound ground beef
2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar (any vinegar can work)
2 eggs (optional; take out breadcrumbs too if you remove)
½ cup breadcrumbs (I like panko) (optional without eggs)
1 medium onion finely diced
2 cloves of garlic finely diced
¼ cup of feta crumbled (optional)
¼ cup of chopped fresh mint (optional)
3 tablespoons of TOSA
Salt and pepper
Pre heat grill or broiler to 500 degrees. If grilling make sure the heat source is on one side so you can roast off heat to finish.
In a large mixing bowl combine beef, vinegar, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, feta, mint, TOSA, a big pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Gently mix all ingredients until uniform and form into two giant football shaped meat balls.
Place burgers on riser of grill or one shelf down in your broiler, then shut the lid. Roll the burgers 90 degrees every 5 minutes or so slowly browning all sides, leaving the lid down when not turning. Once browned on all sides place off heat for 10 more minutes to finish cooking the inside. Rest burgers for five minutes while plating. Enjoy!
