Mojo BBQ Burgers

7 to 8 servings



  • 2 ­lbs of sirloin ground beef

  • 3 tablespoons of evaporated milk

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 Tablespoons of La Lechonera Mojo Criollo Marinade

  • 2 sausage chorizo

  • ⅛ teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional)

  • ¾ cup of breadcrumbs

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced



  • Preheat grill to high. ­

  • In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, chorizo, egg, breadcrumbs*, evaporated milk, La Lechonera Mojo Criollo, cayenne pepper, and garlic using your hands. ­

  • Form mixture into 8 hamburger patties of desired thickness. ­ Lightly oil grill grate (with your choice of cooking oil) and cook burgers, undisturbed, for 5 minutes on each side (or until well done)**. 

    *If burger texture appears too soft, add more breadcrumbs until mixture reaches desired firmness.

    **For the most flavorful burgers, we recommend grilling burgers until they are medium well.
