Chorizo Slider Burgers

In his series Marcus' Kitchen, chef Marcus Samuelsson shares dozens of recipes that prove "American" cuisine is really a delicious melting pot that draws upon flavors from all over the world.

In this video, Marcus shows you that burgers -- and sliders, their beloved miniature versions -- can be made out of more than just beef. Marcus' recipe contains ground pork and lamb and lots of herbs and spices, including dried oregano, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cumin (which Marcus notes gives his burgers a distinctly Mexican feel). He encourages using whichever burger toppings suit your tastes -- he finishes his off with pickles, pickled onions, heirloom tomatoes, mustard and mayo. (You might prefer ketchup, barbecue sauce or cheese.)
