Serves Makes 8 sliders
2 large cloves garlic, grated into a paste or minced
About 1/2 cup loosely packed herbs: oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage and flat-leaf parsley
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
About 1/2 cup EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 pound lean ground sirloin
1/2 pound Spanish chorizo, casing removed and ground in a food processor
Salt and pepper

Heat griddle pan, large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.

Combine garlic and herbs in small bowl, and cover with vinegar and oil. Stir to combine.

Place meats in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and combine well with your hands. Form 8 small, 3-ounce patties that are thinner at center and thicker at edges for even cooking.

Grill meat 3 minutes on first side and 2 on the second side for medium. Serve on slider rolls topped with lots of chimichurri, diced tomatoes and onions.
