Attention all black pepper lovers: THIS RECIPE IS FOR YOU!!! Here's a yummy, peppery twist on a tasty grilled burger. Love it! Enjoy :)
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 TBSP coarsely cracked black pepper
6 slices Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (if your feeling brave)
6 kaiser rolls, split (or a plain ol' bun)
Mix all ingredients except pepper, cheese and rolls. Shape into 6 patties about 3/4 inch thick. Press 3/4 teaspoon of the pepper into each side of each patty. Cover and refrigerate 2 hrs. before grilling. Heat coals or gas grill. Grill patties uncovered about 4 inches from meduim heat 12-17 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink and center juice is clear. Top each burger with cheese slice for last 2 minutes of grilling. Serve on rolls.
*If you love cracked pepper like me, use up to 1 TBSP for each burger for a strong bite!
