Really Big Bosnian Burgers

Although these are called burgers, they're traditionally not served on a bun, but eaten with a knife and fork with bread on the side. Pita bread, tomato slices, and lemon wedges are all suggested for serving. I had low expectations for this dish given its simplicity, but the smoky grill taste combined with just a bit of heat was fantastic.

Really Big Bosnian Burgers (from Planet Barbecue!)

12 ounces ground veal

1 - 2 serrano peppers, minced or 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1. Combine ingredients in large mixing bowl and knead until blended. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour.

3. Preheat grill to high.
4. Brush and oil grill grate. Transfer patties to grill. Grill 2 - 3 minutes per side until cooked to desired level of doneness.
