Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 15 min

Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy


2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for brushing

1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed Spanish olives

4 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 1/4 pounds coarsely ground pork

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 pound manchego cheese, broken into bite-size pieces

4 Portuguese rolls, split

Pimientos, tomato, red onion and/or lettuce, for topping


Preheat a grill to medium-high. Place the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the olives, garlic, oregano, chili powder, paprika, coriander, cumin and allspice in a food processor; pulse until smooth. Scrape the mixture into a large bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons mayonnaise.

Mix the pork into the olive mixture; season with salt and pepper. Shape into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick. Make a deep pocket in each; stuff with some manchego, then close the patty around the cheese.

Brush the burgers with oil; season with salt and pepper. Brush the grill with oil; grill the burgers until marked on the bottom, 5 minutes. Flip and continue grilling until just cooked through, 5 more minutes.

Brush the cut sides of the rolls with the remaining 1 tablespoon mayonnaise; grill until lightly toasted. Serve the burgers on the rolls with your choice of toppings.
