I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Brisket Burgers with Poblanos & Onions

Brisket Burgers with Poblanos & Onions


  • 3 poblano peppers
  • 2 - 1/2” thick slices yellow onion
  • Olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef, or
  • 1 pound ground beef and 1 pound ground brisket (ask a butcher, you’ll be so glad you did)
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • Ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced fine
  • 6 slices Muenster cheese
  • 6 buns - and use something good like a brioche


  1. Heat grill to medium high
  2. Lightly oil peppers and onions slices, and place on the grill
  3. Cook until peppers are fully blackened and onions are well marked - remove
  4. Let peppers sit until cool enough to handle, then using a paper towel, pull off blackened skin, cut in half and remove seeds
  5. Rough chop peppers and onions together - set aside
  6. While they cook, combine beef with brisket if using and season with salt & pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin and shape into 6 patties
  7. Put burgers on a medium hot grill and cook until desired temp (which should be medium rare, just sayin) adding cheese in the last few minutes of cooking
  8. Combine mayo, cilantro, garlic, pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon cumin - mix well
  9. Lightly oil buns, and place on the grill for color
  10. Build by putting some sauce on a bun, the burger with cheese, some of the peppers and onions and the top bun
