Outside In Burgers with Sweet & Spicy Ketchup
This is our version of “inside out” or “Juicy Lucy” burgers, as they are known in various parts of the country.
Sweet & Spicy Ketchup:
- 3 Tbsp. Lodo Red Adobo
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
- 3/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
- 1/2 tsp. Mexican oregano
- 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 x egg, lightly beaten (optional)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, diced
- 1 cup red onion, diced
- 4 x buns
Mix Lodo Red Adobo thoroughly into ketchup and set aside. Start grill. Mix together ground beef, pepper, salt, garlic, oregano, cumin and egg (if needed to bind) until thoroughly combined, but not overworked. Form into 4 equal sized balls. Flatten out each ball to 1/4" thick and place a tbsp each of the diced red onion and diced cheddar in the middle. Fold flatten burger meat over the onion and cheddar enclosing it securely in the middle of the meat and form back into a ball. Then flatten into a 3/4" thick burger patty. Grill to desired temperature, turning only once. Toast bun on the grill in indirect heat.
Serve with Maple Pepper Sweet Potato Wedges.
