Dominican Chimichurri Burgers

Recipe from: Gourmet, September 2007
Servings: 4

No need to worry about why this Dominican burger shares a name with the Argentinean sauce — nobody knows. Instead, just call it a chimi, grab a cold beer, and enjoy!

1 ¼ pound ground beef chuck
1 medium onion, finely chopped
½ large red bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 hamburger buns, split
2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
1 carrot, coarsely grated
1 small red onion, cut into rings
1 tomato, sliced ¼ inch thick
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon yellow mustard

Mix together beef, onion, bell pepper, garlic, cilantro, oregano, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, a scant ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Form into 4 (4 ½-inch-wide) patties.

Heat a large griddle or 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until hot, then lightly toast buns.

Oil griddle, then cook patties, turning once, about 8 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer to buns.

Mix together cabbage, carrot, and ¼ teaspoon salt, then cook, turning occasionally, until slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Divide among burgers.

Oil griddle again, then sear onion and tomato, turning once, until slightly charred, about 2 minutes total. Divide among burgers.

Stir together ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard, then top burgers with sauce.
