Spiced Beef Patties (to serve with couscous)

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenseyt @ 3:53 pm
from Bon Appétit, December 2002 (my additions in italics)
  • 1 1/3 pounds lean ground beef (20% fat) (I used 7% fat; was good.)
  • 1 large onion, minced (about 2/3 C)
  • 3 T water
  • 4 t olive oil
  • 1 t ground black pepper
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t ground coriander
  • 1/2 t cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • chopped fresh parsley

Mix all ingredients in medium bowl to blend well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

For each patty, shape 1/4 C mixture into 3/4-inch-thick round. Heat heavy large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to skillet and cook to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Serve with Couscous with Spiced Zucchini (from Gourmet, September 2005).
