Jerk-Seasoned Buffalo Hamburger Steak with Mango-Pineapple Salsa

Howard L. Puckett
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 patty and 1/2 cup salsa)
Naturally lean and rich-tasting buffalo is now widely available in grocery stores. Its flavor is milder than other wild red meats. You also can use ground elk, deer, or lean beef for the patties. Cook the patties on a grill pan if it's too chilly to grill outdoors. Serve with baked tortilla chips.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped peeled mango
  • 3/4 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 pound ground buffalo
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
