1 lb. finely ground Beef (no leaner than 20% fat)        2 tsps. ground Cumin   

2 Tbsps. Olive Oil                                                         1 tsp. ground Turmeric

4 Tbsps. Chili Powder                                                    2 Tbsps. Cold Water

  • Add half the Flour mixture to the cooked meat and stir; continue cooking  until the mixture thickens.  If it appears too thin, add the remaining Flour mixture and stir again.
  • Continue cooking for another 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Serve while hot over cooked Burgers.
