  • 1
    Marinate the ground beef with the seasonings you like and make four hamburger patties.
  • 2
    Grill or sauté them until they are cooked to your taste.
  • 3
    Cover the hot patties with the cheese slices so that they melt with the heat.
  • 4
    To make the patacones, peel the plantains. Cut each one into three parts and fry them in hot oil, until they turn two shades darker.
  • 5
    When the plantains are more or less cooked, remove them from your frying pan and flatten to about one-quarter-inch thick with a plate or a rolling pin.
  • 6
    Fry the plantains in batches a second time until they are crunchy, but still tender inside. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Salt them while they are still hot.
  • 7
    On a plate, place the patacón with a slice of green tomato on top, followed by the hamburger patty with melted cheese and finish it off with another patacón on top.
  • 8
    To make the fry sauce, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup and a few drops of lemon juice to taste.
  • You can use frozen hamburgers patties or homemade ones prepared with the marinade you prefer.
