Harissa beef burgers

It has been a long time since I made a burger. My family were really pleased with these Harissa beef burgers to say the least. They were juicy, tasty and super easy to prepare.

I was afraid that my kids would reject these burgers because of the spiciness of Mina Harissa, however, they didn’t even mentioned a thing. They devoured these burgers in no time. It wasn’t that spicy at all because I only added two tablespoons to the burger mixture. If you like it extra spicy I suggest you add more!

My husband really appreciated the burgers. It don’t cook meat too often so when I do he really enjoys it. I mean he ate two of the burgers so I am sure they were of his liking! I think he even poured half the Harissa jar sauce over his burgers. He likes his food extra spicy!

What I love most about Mina Harissa is the fact that is made with natural ingredients. No preservatives, colorants or weird ingredients which is right up my alley being a dietitian.

When you get to make these Harissa beef burgers there isn’t an specific way of serving them. I used bean sprouts, tons of onions and cheese but you can use sliced tomatoes or any other toppings of your choice.

Mina Harissa has also provided me with 3 Mina Harissa packs for three Eat Good 4 Life readers.

  1. i’ve never tried harissa! i’d love to try it in these burgers though :)

  2. It sounds pretty amazing in these burgers! I’m guessing harissa would complement just about any dish would benefit with some spice.

  3. I’ve always wanted to find an excuse to use Harissa in a reicpe. I have a crock pot sweet potato chili I make and I’m sure the addition of Mini Harrisa will pair up nicely with the taste of the sweet potato in my chili (:

  4. I have seen you use Harissa in other receipies and have always wanted to try it. I love anything spicy!

  5. I love love love all things hot. Although I have plenty of salsa, hot peppers and sauce in my pantry from the Houston Hot Sauce festival this year, I would love to try the Mina Harissa sauce. I am currently on a quinoa kick so I’m thinking it might be good on a quinoa burger and give some heat and spice to a Moroccan quinoa salad. Endless ideas!

  6. I’ve never cooked with Harissa before, but we use Sriracha daily. I’d imagine it would be excellent on eggs or mixed into a veggie stir-fry; although that burger you’ve posted looks DEVINE. Pinned it and will be making it once I can find a jar of this spicy sauce!

  7. I’ve never cooked with Harissa before, so I’d have to do some research before using it. But it sounds delicious!

  8. Wow! I don’t know if I could handle two patties, but it does look delicious! I’m going to make this when I get home, what cheese did you use/do you recommend?

  9. Just made this with a few adaptations and additions and they were D E L I C I O U S ! Best burger we’ve ever had! Very happy husband and me :-) thank you for sharing your recipe Miryam. 

  10. I love using harissa in my chilli con carne and any beef or chicken dishes, i use harissa when i am making a salsa or marinades
