It is not all that often that I get to indulge in "luxury?" foods nowadays. Now and then, I just have to get my fix.

I began this burger with a very lean, freshly ground chuck (nice to know a friendly butcher). Then I marinated the 1/3 lb paddy in olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar, and mined garlic for 4 hours. (I waited till it hit the grill before I seasoned it with coarse ground s&p).

Image

I present the toppings-- red cabbage, tomatoes, pickles, red onion, and Deluxe American cheese.

Image

Off to the pit. I chose to grill this burger indirect over medium low heat, about 12 minutes per side.

Image

Brushed the buns with olive oil and melted the cheese. The roll came out nice and crisp.

Image

Time to assemble and plate. The roll is a hearty and wholesome 7-grain. For "secret sauce," I went with the Lea & Perrins Classic THICK sauce--pours like a steak sauce, and lends fantastic flavor to a burger. So I got my burger and fry fix, and this one was absolutely delicious. :D

Great lookin' burger, beercuer!!! :D Glad to have you back! I will have to try out cabbage on a burger...in the small town I grew up in, there was this little burger joint called "Old Time Burgers"...they had an awesome burger with cole slaw on it... your burger kinda reminds me of that. I will have to give this a try! Unfortunately, the burger joint closed down many years ago... :cry:

Why thank you, guys! :D

Jsperk-- Yeah, I find that brushing the buns with olive oil (or bacon drippings) really makes a difference for me.

Dyal--Now you're talkin' brother... Cole slaw makes a fantastic burger topping--and it even has the mayo built right in. Also works great in fish tacos. :D

That burger looks outstanding, Beercuer! I have oodles of ground beef in the freezer and I just decided what I'm going to do with at least 1 pound of it...
