Recipe Details


Burger season is here with a vengeance and we’ve dreamed up one of the most flavorful versions out there. Hickory barbecue sauce adds a smoky sweetness to juicy beef patties, which are served on lightly toasted brioche buns. For richness and a hit of acid, the burgers are topped with red and green cabbage slaw with slivers of carrots. It’s grilling season, and we’re embracing it to the fullest!

    While onion grills, pat beef dry with paper towel and place in a large bowl. Add barbecue sauce and 1 packet Dijon mustard. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Using your hands, mix well and form into 2 equal patties, about 1-inch thick. Using your thumb, create a dimple on top of each.
