  • Burger
  • 1 pound Verde Farms Organic Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 slices provolone cheese, cut ½ inch thick
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Brioche burger buns, toasted
  • Salsa Verde
  • 3 cups cilantro, thick bottom stems cut off
  • 4 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. To make the salsa verde, add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until it becomes a smooth sauce, scraping down the sides periodically. Pour sauce into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Mix ground beef with salt and pepper. Divide into thirds and shape each third into a burger.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet with a drizzle of vegetable oil. When hot, add the burgers. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Move skillet to oven and cook for 5 minutes. Remove burgers from oven and place on the buns.
  5. Turn oven broiler on. Place slices of cheese in a cast-iron baking dish. Sprinkle with dried oregano and red pepper flakes. Broil for 2–3 minutes. Keep a close eye on it, until top of cheese starts to brown and melt. Remove from oven and transfer cheese onto the burgers.
  6. Place a big spoonful of salsa verde on top of the cheese and add a few slices of red onion. Place the top bun on top and serve!
