Prep

  1. Green beans / Roasted bell peppers / Jalapenos - (If prepping right before cooking get oven heating and, if using grill, get grill heating before continuing with prep.) Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make chimichurri sauce - (Double if making Thursday’s meal.) Combine cilantro, parsley, garlic, shallots, capers, vinegar, lime juice, salt (portion for chimichurri), and oil (portion for chimichurri) in a blender or a food processor. Add more oil if it’s too thick. Season to taste with salt or more lime juice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Make chimichurri mayo - Whisk together chimichurri sauce (reserve half if doubled) with mayonnaise. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Form burger patties - Mix together beef, jalapenos, Worcestershire sauce, salt (portion for burger), and pepper. Form into 3/4" to 1" / 2 cm to 2.5 cm thick patties and make a depression in the center with your thumb. Cover and refrigerate if not making right away. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Toss green beans with oil (portion for green beans) and some salt and pepper. Spread out onto a sheet pan and roast until tender and brown in spots, ~20 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through cooking.
  3. If cooking on a grill: Heat grill to 450F / 232C degrees. Clean grates and brush with oil (portion for burgers).
  4. {Grill}: While green beans roast, place burger patties on grill and grill on one side until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip burgers and continue cooking until cooked to your liking - 2 to 3 minutes more for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium, 5 to 6 minutes more for well-done. In the last minute of cooking, top each burger patty with a slice of cheese.
  5. If cooking on the stovetop: While green beans roast, heat up a grill pan or skillet with oil (portion for burgers) over high heat. Add burger patties to heated pan and cook on one side until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip burgers and continue cooking until cooked to your liking - 2 to 3 minutes more for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium, 5 to 6 minutes more for well-done. In the last minute of cooking, top each burger patty with a slice of cheese.
  6. Toast hamburger buns.
  7. When green beans are finished, squeeze lemon juice over top.
  8. Assemble burgers by spooning chimichurri mayo onto each side of the hamburger buns (you may not need all of it). Fill buns with hamburger patties and roasted bell peppers.
  9. Serve chimichurri burgers with green bean “fries” on the side with any extra chimichurri mayo for dipping. Enjoy!

I’ve never made a black bean burger before and this was a hit. Next time I would double (or triple!) and freeze because of the up front effort.

Subbed asparagus since it's in season. My jalapeno was a bit spicey but overall liked the black bean burgers. Easy too.
