Many hands make light work. While one cook makes the patties, the other puts together the sauce and — presto! — supper's on the table.

  • Portion size 4 servings


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 onion
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional


In bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper; shape into 4 patties. In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook patties for 5 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside; pour off fat from skillet.

Sauce: Combine onion, tomato sauce, chicken stock, chili powder, paprika, oregano and cayenne pepper (if using); pour into skillet and bring to boil.

Reduce heat to low and return patties to pan; cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes, turning patties once. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; pour sauce over patties and top with remaining buns.
