Cuban Juicy Burgers















Trans-fat Free, Low Carb


2 pounds beef chuck
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
½ cup mayonnaise, light
4 cloves garlic
4 tablespoons dijon mustard
4 each hamburger buns
prefer whole wheat
8 slices swiss cheese
4 slices smoked ham
2 each pickles, dill
thinly sliced


Preheat the grill to high.

Form the meat into 4 (about ¼ inch thick) patties.

Season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Grill for 2 to 3 minutes on both sides for medium doneness.

When the burgers are done, remove from the heat and reduce heat to medium-low.

Meanwhile, add the mayonnaise and roasted garlic in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.

Spread both sides of each bun with mayonnaise and mustard.

Place a slice of cheese on the bottom, place the burger on top of the cheese, then top the cheese with a slice of ham and another slice of cheese, and finally, the pickle slices.

Place the top buns on top of the pickles, wrap the burgers in aluminum foil, and place them on the grill.

Using a heavy pan or a brick wrapped in foil, press down on the burgers for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Lower the lid on the grill and continue grilling for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bun becomes pressed and firm.
