Whenever I get this out I instantly start singing that 60’s song “secret agent man”. You can mix this right into the burger, you can add it during the cooking process, or hey you can do both! Experimentation is half the fun of cooking!
This burger seasoning has a delightful and full taste that will leave you wondering what that flavor is that you can’t quite put your finger (or taste buds on).The flavor of this seasoning is just a bit sweet and balances perfectly with the hints of smoky paprika. The “secret ingredient” is from the Grains of Paradise. Grains of Paradise is more popular in Middle Eastern, North and West African cuisines but it has become increasingly popular in this country when used in various rubs for chicken, fish and steak. Grains of Paradise are the seeds of a perennial reed like plant and was originally brought to Europe in the 13th century from it’s native area, the tropical coast of West Africa. When pepper prices would spike it was appreciated as an excellent substitute, hence the nicknames Guinea Pepper, Melegueta Pepper, and Alligator Pepper.
Hand blended from brown sugar, domestic paprika, sea salt, grains of paradise, Mexican oregano, marjoram, onion, garlic, rosemary and yellow mustard powder.
