Original recipe yields 12 burgers



  1. Mix the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, milk, egg, onion, ketchup, salt, Pimenton de la Vera, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper together in a large bowl until well combined; divide the mixture into 12 equal ball shapes. Place in refrigerator for 3 hours to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the meatballs in the skillet, flattening them with the back of a spatula as they cook, about 7 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).

This is a good foundation of a Cuban Frita but you are missing some key ingredients... First of all, the Chorizo. Not the soft Mexican kind but the harder Spanish Chorizo. I would add in a good 1/4 lb of Chorizo. You also are missing the Papitas or fried potatoes on top. Just shred a potato, fry it until golden brown and then salt. Serve this on top of the burger with ketchup. I also increase the pimenton to a tablespoon.



This yields a very tasty burger, assuming the whole batch is about 20 oz., 16 oz. meat it makes about 6 (1/4 pounders) not 12 unless you like 1.3 ounce burgers.

This is a very good base recipe but THE best and most important parts of the Frita are missing! The spanish chorizo mixed into the ground meat AND the shredded potatoes! Just these two things alone make a WORLD of a difference to the frita!
