I had hamburger that I had just thawed so I needed to use it before it went bad. I was looking through my Better Homes and Garden cook book and decided to try the BBQ Burgers.
1/4 C Ketchup
2 Tbls steak Sauce
1 Tbls Water
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp Vinegar
1 Clove minced garlic
Few dashes bottled hot pepper sauce (opt)
1 Lb lean ground beef
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 Hamburger buns, split and toasted
Other burger garnishes (tomatoes, cheese etc)
Ok so that is the ingredient list....So here how this went for me. I had fully intended to follow this recipe but...things changed. I don't have any steak sauce so I used BBQ sauce and no hot pepper sauce. I also forgot to toast the buns. I was being lazy and didn't want to have to start the grill and I just wanted things to be done by the time my husband got home from work so I altered the recipe.
I browned the meat instead of turn it into patties.
I used the sauce to make a sort of sloppy joe style burger.
Wasn't enough sauce so:
I added a little ketchup and BBQ sauce at a time until I had enough.
The original sauce that I had before added extra tasted really good. The recipe says to spread it over the hamburger patties the last few minutes of cooking. I think I will try this again with hamburger patties but last night just wasn't the night. I improvised. They tasted so good. I basically came up with a new sloppy joe mix that I can make from scratch. It is a keeper and I really like it. My husband even liked it and my daughter ate almost all of hers (she got full before she finished).
Sorry I forgot to take pictures. I remembered before we ate them but forgot when serving. So that is this weeks recipe. If you try it let me know what you think.
