Cuban Burgers……excellent!!

I had this on a trip to New York at Bobby Flay’s  Mesa Grill simply delicious!!!!!!

(makes 4 servings)

2 cloves garlic (chopped)
4 tablespoons of cilantro (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin (toasted and ground)
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 pounds ground pork (to add another dimension grind up a

chorizo sausage and add to pork)

4 cloves roasted garlic (mashed)
4 tablspoons mayonnaise
4 teaspoons dijon mustard
4 hamburger buns
8 slices swiss cheese
4 slices smoked ham
8 slices dill pickle

1. Mix the garlic, cilantro, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper into the pork.
2. Form the pork into 4 patties about 3/4 of an inch thick.
3. Grill (or broil or pan fry) the burgers until cooked, about 3-5 minutes per side.
 combine the mayonnaise and roasted garlic in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spread both sides of each bun with mayonnaise and mustard. Place a slice of cheese on the bottom portion of each bun, place the burger on top of the cheese, then top the cheese with a slice of ham and another slice of cheese, and finally, the pickleslices.
Place the tops of the bun over the pickles, wrap the burgers in aluminum foil, and place them on the grill. Using a heavy pan or a brick wrapped in foil, press down on the burgers for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Lower the lid on the grill and continue grilling for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the bun has become pressed and firm.
