Jerk-flavored smashburger with CT cheese, pineapple, aioli, red onion, & cabbage.
Short History: Jerk is a style of cooking that is native to Jamaica – meat is either dry-rubbed or marinated with a hot spice mixture. Some people believe that it was a method developed by the Maroons – African slaves who escaped into the jungles of Jamaica in 1655 by adapting to their new surroundings and using the natural food around/available to them. Some others believe that jerking was developed from the Arawak and Taino tribes who intermingled with the Maroons. Either way, this method of cooking gives a smokey and spicy flavor with a tender base. This burger from The Vegan Taste will also give you vitamins A, C, potassium, fiber, folate, iron, and more!
Reheating Instructions: Warm the patty in a covered pan over medium. Toast the bun if you like.
