  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • Salt

  2. Shape into four ¾-inch thick patties.
  3. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals.

  1. With 95% lean ground beef I usually add 2 1 oz pork sausage links in order to add a bit more fat for a bit more flavor–except then I eliminate some of the lean health benefit of the 95%. Used to be I could get bottom round for $1.99 (now $2.99 on special) and my grocer’s meat department would grind it for free. On my cheapo Target gas grill a 6 oz. burger takes a total of 6 minutes–I discovered long ago that time was a better measure than anything else with meats like beef and pork (keeps me from turning it into shoe leather).
    Good stuff.
