Not Your Typical Grilled Burger: Brisket with Poblano Peppers & Onions Recipe

A burger with regular ground beef is terrific, but If you can find ground brisket for half of this, you’ll be very happy cuz it’ll add a ridiculously good beefy flavor. Aside from that the poblanos and onions will be your new best friends.


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 14 minutes
  • Yield: Makes six burgers


  • Olive oil
  • 3 poblano peppers
  • 2 - 1/2” thick slices yellow onion
  • 2 pounds ground beef, or
  • 1 pound ground beef and 1 pound ground brisket (ask a butcher, you’ll be so glad you did)
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced fine
  • 6 slices Muenster cheese
  • 6 buns - and use something good like a brioche


  1. Heat grill to medium high.
  2. Lightly oil peppers and onions slices and place on the grill. Cook until peppers are fully blackened and onions are well marked – remove. Let peppers sit until cool enough to handle, then scrape off blackened skin, cut in half and remove seeds. Rough chop peppers and onions together - set aside.
  3. While they cook, combine beef with brisket (if using) and season with salt & pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin, and shape into 6 patties. Put burgers on a medium hot grill and cook until desired temp (which should be medium rare, just sayin), adding cheese in the last few minutes of cooking.
  4. Combine mayo, cilantro, garlic, pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon cumin - mix well.
  5. Lightly oil buns, and place on the grill for color. Build by putting some sauce on a bun, the burger with cheese, some of the peppers and onions, and the top bun.
