    Dauer: 05:06

    Burger Scholar George Motz says that if you're ever in Miami, you owe it to yourself to visit Little Havana-a neighborhood known for its iconic regional burger, the Cuban Frita. Served on a Cuban roll and topped with crispy potato sticks, the burger patty is seasoned with Chorizo spices and doused in a secret red sauce. The Cuban Frita is a culinary survivor of the exodus following the Cuban Revolution, and remains one of the great Cuban-American gastronomic expressions. Here is your master class on the Cuban Frita.

Haven't tried this burger before, but I wonder if a reason why ketchup may work better with this burger is because of the spices used? Perhaps it helps complement them in a way that ketchup doesn't normally for a non-spiced burger.

Anyone out there who doesn’t like ketchup because it’s too sweet. Pro tip. Try no sugar added or reduced sugar ketchup. We bought it back when we were trying to cut back on carbs. And I was shocked that I liked it more. It’s more umami than sweet. Definitely an improvement.

Depends, I hate ketchup on a burger with lettuce and tomato and american cheese, Wendy's I'm looking at you. In burger sauce though, it's fine. I don't mind it since the sauce is the condiment and it has mustard, cayenne, pickle, mayo, etc.. The best use for ketchup on a burger other than that is to add it to a thick patty after you flip it once... just to add a burnt tomato sugar caramelization, pick it up off the top with a brush and flip, brush the other side and the first side gets exposed to direct heat, brush the other side and flip again. Repeat until burger is done. This is for thick burgers on a grill with a lid. The red sauce in this video is kinda the same thing with a thinner patty on a flat top and a much more complex ketchup. I need to try this. Edited to add if you are a new griller; that ketchup wants to run off and burn and catch shit on fire since it's tomato sugar, you need at least two zones...

The reason for all the spices is because when the meat is rancid in Cuba it covers it up.

Lots of anti-cuban sentiment in this episode. Castro overthrew a violent dictator. And you can't find the ingredients in Cuba anymore not because of the bogeyman of "communism" but because the us has been cruelly embargoing Cuba and encouraging allies to do the same for decades. It's sad to see First We zfeast swallow the Red Scare pill. Great episode otherwise.

I'm not sure how many times he has actually gone to Cuba, but blaming communism for his inability to find some sandwich, that he, an American man and not a cuban or cuban-american, deems "one of the greatest cuban-american gastronomic expressions," in a country, whose language he doesn't speak and probably has never visited, seems like some US-centrism at work.

@waffleMAN 2121 that may be true but the embargo has prevented cubas economic growth all because people blame an economic policy meant to work in tandem with democracy for the actions of a dictator who tried to forge his own little empire. communism has never been the issue it is, was, and always will be a scape goat used to take agency away from the actions of dictators

It is flat out lie. Knowingly or not, the host makes a fool of himself talking about Cuba without knowing what he is saying. In Cuba you can actually find many things you cant find in the USA because some of the supplies for food preparation are "sequestered" by corporations, and you cant just walk in a market and buy them. If anyone in the production had ever been really to Cuba, not the American Tourist Tour, they would know that and skipped that terrible intro.
