1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2/3 cup mango chutney (or use Mango Chutney recipe)
6 hamburger buns
1/4 cup deli-sliced pepper rings
electric skillet (or plain skillet)
Put ground beef and chutney in mixing bowl. Smoosh thoroughly by hand. Form six patties about 1″ thick. Set skillet to 350 degrees. Fry on each side for about 3 minutes or until cooked to your desired level of doneness. (This is your excuse to sneak a bite.)
Put patty on bun. Add 1/6 of the pepper rings to patty. Put other bun on top. You’re now a chutney-hamburger king. Oh, and don’t forget to make the other 5 chutney burgers.
1) According to the “Michigan Farmers Care” website, a fun fact about beef is, “Cattle farmers conserve the land by implementing natural resource management practices that include soil tests, brush and weed control programs, grazing management plans, minimum or no-till systems, and range quality and grass utilization monitoring.”
2) Doesn’t conjure up images of the tv show Rawhide does it?
3) I was hoping something more along the lines of “Cows can in fact be taught to tango. However, due to their limited memories they have to be retaught every night.
4) “This, of course, proved to be quite expensive. This is why only the best-funded outfits put on Cow Tango Shows.” Wild Bill’s Dancing Cows was the most popular one.
5) “Cow Tango shows reigned for only one year, 1889, when the craze suddenly collapsed.
6) “Thrown out of work, tango cows headed for neighboring farms. But they didn’t stay welcome very long. Farmers wearied of the cows’ poor work habits and late-night carousing whenever they fermented their own milk.
7) “Now no one remembers tango cows and they won’t be coming back thanks to OSHA regulation B17B-1127-x/c”
8) There, isn’t that more fun?
