Coriander and Black Pepper Burgers

Juicy, bursting with flavor, Coriander and Black Pepper Burgers are perfect weekend food. Or even a weeknight dinner.

And you do not need to get your barbecue going as these scrumptious patties can be pan fried or grilled on a George Foreman grill.

That being said, I have to be honest, there is no better burger than when the patties are grilled over the coals – not a gas grill, a proper, smoky fire.

Coriander and Black Pepper Burgers

We use whole, crushed Coriander seeds in all our homemade Biltong (similar to Beef Jerky) as it just does not taste like a proper Biltong without this essential ingredient.

The quantity in the recipe for these Coriander Burgers may seem a lot, but it gives a wonderful taste without being overly so.

Do not use ground Coriander, it will not taste the same.  I did a little research on Google regarding Coriander and Cilantro and found some interesting facts.

In South-Africa we call the leafy herb Coriander, whereas in other countries it is known as Cilantro. Now, do not get confused with the herb and the seed, the tastes are worlds apart.

My family is happy with the amount of Black Pepper as in the recipe below. But I normally add even more to my patties when rolling the meat into balls and before chilling.

You can play around with the quantities and even the Coriander Seeds – use more or less, depending on how much you like the flavor of these wonderful Seeds.

The juiciness definitely comes from the pickled Onions and Jalapeno. I use a very mild Jalapeno so that it does not overpower the Coriander taste.
