Summer - YEAH - BBQ season. I found myself last week a burger recipe by just throwing in whatever I felt like it. Amazing is that the result was more than I expected and my family loved it. Anyway I do it again today and think why not share it :). I actually have done marinade last night and kept overnight in the fridge for more tasty. This morning I formed the burgers and put in freezer to get frozen burgers for BBQ this afternoon. And here is the recipe.
Make 10-12 burgers
- 2 lb ground beef
- 1 cup of Aurora - Italian Style Bread Crumbs
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp parley
- 1 tsp five-spice (option)
- 1 tbsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp garlic powder (or 2 gloves of fine chopped garlic)
- 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp of cooking wine
- 1/2 cup of garlic BBQ sauce (used Kraft Garlic BBQ Sauce)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
- Parchment paper - cut in 4x4 inches size.
Preparing: 10 minutes for mixture - 30 minutes for forming burgers - 5 to 10 minutes for BBQ
- Mix all of these ingredients from the previous night. I just mixed it before I went to bed, covered by plastic wrap and store in Fridge.
- For forming burgers, if you have burger frame-maker then it's perfect and save a lot of time. I did not have one so I took the cap of my 4-cup ZIPLOCK soup container (32 oz) to form the burgers. It turned out pretty good. I made 1/2 cup mixture for each burger and filled in the cap (If you want thick burger I suggest 1 cup/each - it's easier to BBQ). I used a tablespoon pressing down the beef mixture, working from center to outside edges (pressed strong enough to pack mixture together and firm). To take the burger out from the cap I used the knife's point, scratched around the edges then to separate it out of the cap and dropped on the pre-cut parchment paper. Also fixed and re-formed the round edges by knife before place another parchment paper on top.
Voila, I got 12 burgers ( around 1/3 inch thickness) The final work is just put all of these burgers into the freezer at least couple hours, get ready for BBQ.
BBQ time is just about 5-10 minutes. For more tasty, I brushed the Garlic BBQ sauce once on each burger about 2 minutes before taking out. Here they are
Enjoy !!! and let me know if you try this.
