  1. 3/4 pound ground chuck, about 80 percent lean
  2. 3/4 pound ground sirloin, about 90 percent lean
  3. 2 ounces cured chorizo
  4. 1/4 cup chopped green olives
  5. Vegetable oil
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. Roasted red peppers
  8. 1 fried egg
  9. 4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted
  1. In a food processor, mince 2 ounces cured chorizo. Add it to the ground meat with 1/4 cup chopped green olives.
  2. Light a grill. In a bowl, mix the ground meats and gently form into four 4-inch patties, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation in the center of each patty, then rub lightly with the oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Grill the burgers over high heat, turning once, about 6 minutes for medium-rare; transfer to the buns, top with roasted red peppers and a fried egg.
