  • Pre-heat the grill.
  • In a medium bowl combine the pork, beef, Old Havana Foods Sofrito Authentic Cuban Cooking Sauce (or Zesty Hot Cooking Sauce) and pepper. Lightly mix together until well combined.
  • Form meat mixture into 6 (1/3 pound each) patties to match round or oval shape of rolls being used and set aside.
  • Grill burgers over medium-high heat until cooked through to desired doneness (155°F for medium well), about 5-6 minutes per side. If using cheese, place slice on burger patties and allow to melt.
  • Spread bottom bun surface with 2 tablespoons Raisin Sofrito Ketchup, top with cooked patty, tomato slice, lettuce leaf, burger and onion slice. Spread 1 tablespoon lime crema on top bun surface.


Serve with additional Raisin Sofrito Ketchup and Garlic Lime Crema.
Use Zesty Hot Cooking Sauce for a spicy kick in place of the Sofrito.
