Spiced hamburgers

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 small Onion; finely minced
1 tablespoon Finely minced garlic
1 teaspoon Ground black pepper
½ teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon Ground coriander
2 pounds Ground beef
4 Toasted hamburger buns
4 slices Red onion (thin slices)
4 slices Tomato
Ketchup
Mustard
Mayonnaise

COMBINE OIL AND ONION in a small skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring, about 4 minutes, or until onions soften. Add garlic, pepper, nutmeg and coriander and continue to cook another minute. Scrape the onion mixture into a mixing bowl, add the beef and mix well. Form 4 patties, place on a plate, cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Place a large, heavy skillet on the stove over high heat. When it is nearly smoking, add the hamburger patties. Cook 2 minutes. Turn the patties and cook on the other side until desired doneness, about 1 minute for very rare, 4 minutes for medium-well. Arrange burgers on hamburger buns and garnish each with a slice of onion and tomato.

Offer ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise.
