Ingredients
















Cooking Instructions

For sauce:


1

Combine the garlic and jalapeño in a food processor. Process until finely minced. Add the parsley; process until finely minced. Scrape down the work bowl. Add the oil, vinegar, and salt; process until well-combined. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the oregano and red pepper flakes. Let the sauce rest for 2 hours, if possible, to blend the flavors.


For burgers:


1

Prepare a barbecue grill or heat a ridged grill pan. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the chimichurri sauce into a large bowl. Add the meat, salt, and pepper; mix well. Divide the mixture into 8 balls. Form each ball into a thin patty, about 5 inches in diameter. Divide the cheese over four of the patties, and top with the remaining patties. Seal the edges well, enclosing the cheese.


2

Grill the patties over medium-hot coals (or follow ground meat directions if using a gas grill) or in the heated grill pan for 5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 160°F. If desired, place the buns, cut sides down, on the grill during the last 1 minute of cooking, or toast the buns in the oven or under the broiler. Place the patties in the buns and serve with the remaining chimichurri sauce.


3

Note: If desired, additional gouda, thinly sliced, may be placed over the patties during the last minute of cooking.
