Carne Asada Burger
December 27, 2015
"Carne Asada is a lovely Mexican peppy mixture of spices. It used a lot with beef cubes in stews. I made a burger many years ago that I liked - here is today's version. Use what condiments to top it off that you fancy. I used sweet relish, yellow mustard, cream cheese, onions and mushroom . Chopped sweet onion, tomato & cheese are nice toppers. I like to make 3 patties out of a pound but have listed the usual 4."
