A few days ago my husband had a long day at work. So it was the perfect excuse to make some of his favorite things: crispy roasted potatoes, burgers, and grilled onions. Plus, I’d had burgers on the brain since my friend Kylan said she was busting out the grill.
Finally the grilling season is in full swing!
We don’t actually have a barbecue because you couldn’t fit a grill on our fire escape in the Bronx. Currently we’re waffling between buying a charcoal grill or a gas grill (your thoughts are appreciated).
For now I sear my burgers on the stove top, then add a little water to the pan, turn down the heat, and cover those bad boys to finish cooking with steam–perfectly moist!
These burgers were ground beef with the following seasonings: black pepper, red pepper flakes, oriental mustard powder, garlic, and a few tablespoons of olive oil to stick it all together. Pretty much your standard burger plus a spicy kick. We used kale, tomatoes, and grilled onions on a whole wheat bun to complete the package!
It was delicious, but there’s still a lot of grilling ahead, and I need inspiration. Please, tell me what you do! Share a great recipe or your favorite grilling tip…
