Yield: About 3 Tablespoons | Total Time: 5 Minutes
This past Memorial Day weekend, my husband and I had a BBQ at our new house.
We invited about 12 people, so to keep the stress level down and also so we could chum with our friends on the patio instead of slaving away over the grill, we cooked everything ahead of time.
Now you are probably wondering how we kept the burgers from drying out while we waited for our guests to arrive. It is simple, really. Throw them in the slow cooker and douse them with a mix of onion broth and beef au jus! (This little trick I learned from a dear friend who has since gone to be with the Lord).
But, that isn't all... the real key to infusing flavor into the meat is to season the burgers and let them sit for an hour or so before they hit the grill.
My wonderful husband Mark came up with the recipe for this seasoning, and it was a real hit!
Mark's recipe can be used for more than just burgers, too. Try it with Easy Chorizo or in scrambled eggs. The possibilities are endless!
Mark's Seasoning Mix
Total Time: 5 Minutes
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in an empty, small spice container. If you do not have a spice container with a shaker lid on hand, a small ziplock bag works well, too!
