Algeria - North Africa Burgers

The final recipe from the 2010 FIFA World Cup Menu - Week 2. Deadly easy and even better tasting! These will become part of my regular summertime repertoire.

Algeria - North Africa Burgers
Serves 4

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 2 tsp ground cumin

  • 2 tsp paprika, hot if you have a choice of which type

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 tsp curry powder

  • 1/2 a large red onion, sliced

  • 4 pitas

  • lettuce, tomato, cucumber

  • yogurt dressing or tzatziki sauce


  1. Mix the beef with the cumin, paprika, garlic, coriander and curry.

  2. Form into patties, I made mine more oblong to fit in the pita

  3. Heat a pan or grill to high

  4. Sear the burgers and red onion on the grill, turn and cook until cooked to your liking.

  5. Remove the burgers from the grill or pan, turn off the heat

  6. Place the pitas on the grill or pan and warm on each side

  7. Assemble the burgers on each pita with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and yogurt sauce.
