Print Recipe


  • 1 1/3 pounds ground round
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar


  • Add ground beef to a large bowl and pour the ice water over the meat.  Use  your clean hands to mix the water into the beef until it's completely combined.  Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the onions and sweat them for 2-3 minutes until softened and slightly translucent.  Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.  
  • Add the salt, cumin, chili powder, onion powder and cayenne to the onions and stir until well combined and very fragrant.  Add the ground beef to the onions and cook until browned, breaking up large pieces and stirring constantly.  Stir in the ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce and cider vinegar and bring to a simmer.  Place the lid on the pan, slightly askew so steam can be released and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve as a condiment with  hot dogs or hamburgers.
