Salisbury Jerky Burgers

Many recipes use a dozen ingredients for a jerk sauce, but there is simply no need. I think you're going to truly love this Salisbury Jerky Burger and not just because of the jerk taste, but because we add a little "salisbury" flavor to it.

Many recipes use a dozen ingredients for a jerk sauce, but there is simply no need. I think you’ll truly love this Salisbury Jerky Burger and not just because of the jerk taste, but because we add a little “salisbury” flavor.

Salisbury? My parents always made Salisbury Steaks many decades ago in their restaurants, and it was just onions, peppers and burger meat mixed together, shaped into a football-like patty and grilled.

Ingredients

Jerk Sauce

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons each molasses and soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic in oil (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon each ground allspice and nutmeg

Burger

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup minced bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced onion

Preparation

  • 1 Combine all Jerk Sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until as smooth as possible; set aside.
  • 2 Mix ground beef with bell pepper and onion well. Form into 4 patties.
  • 3 Line a grill grate with aluminum foil and heat grill to medium heat. Place burgers on foil and start slathering Jerk Sauce over the top. Cook for about 6-8 minutes before turning each patty over and slathering even more Jerk Sauce over the top. Cook until desired doneness is achieved. (Did I mention to slather on more Jerk Sauce?)
  • 4 Serve with any remainder Jerk Sauce heated, for dipping burger into.
