From the Test Kitchen

A spicy, creamy jalapeño mayo makes the ideal partner for our burgers, seasoned with smoky-sweet barbecue spices like brown sugar, paprika, and garlic powder. We’re serving them with a bright, refreshing cabbage slaw, marinated in fresh lime juice while the burgers cook.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice. Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Halve the lime crosswise. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the pepper; thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling.
