Easy And Tasty BBQ BurgerPrint Recipe
- 1 pound ground beef chuck (at least 10% fat)
- 1 pound ground beef sirloin (20% fat recommended)
- Salt and pepper
- 4 slices of bacon cut into small slices
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 whole onion
- Hamburger buns
- Cheddar cheese
- TO MAKE THE BBQ SAUCE:
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of onion powder
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon of ground mustard
1. Mix the BBQ sauce ingredients all together and bring to a boil. Let the BBQ sauce simmer for 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
2. Slice onions and diced garlic. Saute both until both are caramelized and brown. Also, saute the bacon slices until crisp. Save the bacon fat.
3. Mix your meats in a large mixing bowl. Shape/Mold your burger to fit your bun. Thickness is up to you. Make sure, however, that the burger is wider than your bun because the meat will shrink in size once you cook the meat.
4. Season with salt and pepper on both sides before cooking (like steak). Make sure to indent the center of the meat so that when cooking, the edges of the meat will not rise to be higher than the center.
5. In a pan, add 1 part canola or vegetable oil and 1 part bacon fat. Sear one side of the burger for 1 minute. Flip and sear the 2nd side for 3 minutes.
6. Base the burger with the grease in the pan. Flip the burger over and cook for 2 more minutes for a medium-rare to medium (perfect).
7. We want cheddar cheese to be melted onto the meat. Right before the meat was about done, place a slice of cheese on top of the meat so that the cheese would melt.
8. When ready, assemble the burger: Bun–> meat–> cheese–>grilled onions–>bacon crisps–>BBQ sauce–> bun!!!
