Notes: Adam found the original recipe for Jerk Beefburger on BBCGoodFood.com. I have not previously considered using jerk with beef, but Adam selected it and it looked like a good idea. I changed the recipe by removing the carrots and used my dry jerk seasoning instead of the one provided in the original recipe. I also increased the amount of seasoning used since my first try was a bit bland. I suggest you try it but also make some of my jerk marinade to add flavor if you need it. Otherwise, you will need to buy some seasoning from the store. Finally, I substituted my Pineapple Salsa for the pineapple relish. Give it all a try and let me know how it goes!.

The Dry Seasoning…
2 Tablespoon onion flakes
2 Tablespoon onion powder
4 Teaspoons ground thyme
4 Teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 Teaspoons sugar
2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 Teaspoons dried chives or green onion
Place all the seasoning in a bowl and mix to blend. Use sparingly until you’ve figured out how spicy your seasoning is. You can store any leftover seasoning in an airtight container. What you don’t use, you can put in a jar and save for another time.
1 Red onion, ½ grated and ½ finely chopped
2 Pounds ground beef
2 Tablespoons jerk seasoning (to taste)
Lettuce, tomatoes and burger buns, to serve
Mix together the grated and chopped onion, ground beef and jerk seasoning in a large bowl, then shape into 4 evenly sized 8 oz patties. Heat a non-stick frying pan till hot, then cook the burgers for 5-6 mins each side. Set aside to rest.
4 Very large potatoes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
For the chips, pre-heat the oven to 190C/375F. Scrub the potatoes and cut into chips and let them soak in cool water for 20 minutes. Lay the chips in a single layer on a baking tray, drizzle with oil, season and toss to coat. Bake for 10 mins and then flip them and then bake 10 minutes or to your taste.
The Pineapple Salsa…
I am a taking the easy way out and just providing the link to the salsa here since I know it goes well with chips. You can find the recipe for the salsa here on my site.
