Jamaican Jerk Burgers

By • Dec 10th, 2007 • Category: Burger Recipes

These Jamaican Jerk Burgers are loaded with strong Jamaican spices and are great for anyone who loves food with real heat. Serve these burgers with lots of lettuce and a sweet pickle to cool things down.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon dried breadcrumbs
  • 3 fresh Jalapeño peppers or 1 scotch bonnet pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 an inch of ginger, grated
  • juice from 1/2 small orange
  • 2 tablespoons of orange zest
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 green/spring onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons of allspice
  • large pinch of nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of hot sauce
  • 4 burger buns


  • Combine the beef with all of the other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Cover the mixture and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours so the Jamaican jerk flavors can infuse into the meat.
  • Shape the beef mixture into 4 patties and Broil/Grill each burger for 5 minutes on each side or until the meat is fully cooked.
  • Serve on toasted burger buns with lots of salad and a sweet pickle.

Suggested burger topping: romaine lettuce and lime pickle or lime relish. More burger toppings.

    An ok burger. It needed some additional salt, and I need to remember to be liberal with the hot peppers and hot sauce for the bite I was expecting.
