We like to call our Ventura Spice “a taste of Ventura in a jar.” And so, when we combine Ventura Spice with really good beef and top it with even more Ventura ingredients, the Ultimate Ventura Burger is born!
Our Ultimate Ventura Burger starts with a burger patty seasoned with Ventura Spice and dressed with an avocado lime mash and then topped with bacon. But not just any bacon, bacon that’s been glazed with Earl’s Gone Wild Pepper Jam.
Glazing bacon? What’s that you ask? By simply spreading pepper jelly on the bacon before baking it, that bacon literally turns into candy—crispy, sticky, sweet, salty, and spicy.
Do be sure to keep an eye on your bacon as it can easily burn!
The Ultimate Ventura Burger!
Spread Earl´s Gone Wild jelly on bacon slices. Place on foil lined baking sheet. Place in oven set at 400° (no need to preheat)
Combine ground beef with Ventura Spice and form into 4 patties.
Heat cast iron pan on stove over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes.
Add olive oil to pan and heat for an additional one minute.
Add burger patties to pan. Cook for 5 minutes per side.
Check on bacon. Remove when done to the crispness you like.
While patties cook, smash avocado with a fork until broken up but still chunky. Stir in lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 3-4 grinds of Tellicherry Pepper.
