Ingredients

  • 16 ounces Top Sirloin
  • 8 ounces Bacon I use applewood smoked
  • 1 egg
  • ½ white onion chopped very small
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup BBQ Sauce I use Stubb's Sweet Heat
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Spice I use Tony Chacere's
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • bread crumbs as needed
  • Cheese, grilled peppers and onions, and whatever else you love on a burger! Pile it high!

Instructions

Grinding the meat

  • Prior to grinding, chop bacon and sirloin into 1 inch cubes
  • Run meat through the grinder a few pieces at a time. After it has all been ground, mix it around and run the meat through again so the bacon and sirloin thoroughly mix.

Seasoning the meat

  • Put freshly ground meat into a large bowl. Add egg, BBQ sauce, diced onion, minced garlic, cajun spice, and Worcestershire sauce and mix thoroughly.
  • If the meat is too wet, add breadcrumbs as needed.
  • Form into patties. You should have enough for at least 6.

Cooking the meat

  • In a large saute pan over medium/high heat, cook the patties 3-4 at a time
  • Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes on each side. Flip carefully, as the fat and moisture in the burgers may cause it to break apart.
  • Top with cheese, if desired, and cover pan so the cheese melts.
  • Tasty Tip: Butter and broil buns in the oven to toast, and top with lettuce, pickles, grilled peppers and onions, etc. Enjoy!
