  1. Directions for Burger
  2. In a bowl, place your ground chuck inside and add the chopped onion and green pepper. With your hands, mix well. Then add the Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, and soy sauce. Again with your hands, mix well. Lastly, add all the seasonings and mix well.
  3. Once all the ingredients are well incorporated, begin to take the amount of meat that you would like to be the size of your burgers. I made half pound burgers, so I was able to create two burgers.
  4. You can use a George Forman grill if you are trying to cut down on the fat or if that is just your preference. Personally, I wanted the entire flavor so I used a grill pan to make my burgers and to get those grill marks on them as well.
  5. Cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side on a medium high heat. DO NOT use your spatula to squeeze down the burger. When you do that, you are taking out the flavor. So just let them cook on their sides until they are done to your cooking preference.
  6. Once the burgers are complete, you have to dress them. But before you put your regular mayo, ketchup, and or mustard, try this recipe for a Roasted Red Pepper Aioli that I made. So good!
  7. Directions for Aioli: Very easy, place all ingredients in a food blender and blend. The sauce should taste smoky, slightly spicy, and full of the garlic and pepper flavor. I love this sauce. Try that instead of the same boring condiments.
  8. Directions for French Fries: What you are going to do is to “eye-ball” the amount of seasoning you put together. I do not have any measurements for you. But if you stick to your gut, I am sure that they will come out fine. I will say, only use a sprinkle of sugar to off-set that salt. A bit of cumin too. That is a very strong seasoning and you don’t want to add as much as you do everything else because it will taste like Mexican or Indian fries, unless that is what you are going for.
  9. Put your oil in a pan or deep fryer to about 350 degrees. While your oil is getting hot, begin to slice your potatoes long. You can cut them to look like steak fries or regular French fries. Whatever your preference.
  10. Toss the fries in the seasoning for an even coat and place the fries in the hot oil. Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until as crispy as you like them.
  11. Eat them while their hot!
