Happy National Grilling Month!

This is probably one of my favorite times of the year because we are really smack in the middle of prime grilling time. 

Pretty much if it can't be grilled, we don't eat it. 

Kevin even smoked some corn last night 😲

Who knew that was a thing???

Well, if it wasn't, it is now because that shizz was amazing!!!

But, even though I loves me some grilled ribeye, and tenderloin (yes I am an expensive date), lately I have been craving hamburgers 🍔

And when I say burger, I mean a big ol' meaty juicy burger! 

YAS!! That is the ticket!

Now, aside from the way you cook it, the only way to get that juicy burger is by making sure you get the correct hamburger meat.

I have been shopping with people that were buying the meat in a tube and I almost cried. 

Then I tenderly took their hand an guided them to the meat counter where I introduced them to Certified Angus Beef ® brand beef.

😊🤝🥩

We all know that the key to a juicy burger is fat content right? 

Yes, that is part of the equation.

However, Certified Angus Beef ® brand beef doesn't just stop there.

Yes, their beef has the perfect fat content (marbling) to give you the juiciest steak or burger out there but, the beef for that steak, or burger, goes through 10 ridged quality checks before it ever hits that meat case.

No other meat you buy is held to those high standards.

The name Angus Beef, and even Certified Angus Beef has been used, but unless you see the Certified Angus Beef ® brand logo, it isn't the good stuff peeps!  



In fact, only 1 in 4 Angus cattle meets the Certified Angus Beef® brand’s 10 quality standards!

What does that mean?

Epic yumminess is what that means!

I get my Certified Angus Beef ® brand beef at my local QFC Store. Find your retailer here.

Now, when I talk about burgers, this is where the Mr. would jump in tell you that a burger should be meat, salt, pepper, cheese, maybe a couple condiments, and a bun and normally I would agree. Using the right beef means you really don't need to add all of the frills to make that burger taste good.

BUT

I am a food blogger people.

Y'all know that I have a hard time doing anything without playing a bit. 

So we have an agreement. 

Since we eat burgers at least 4 to 6 times a month right now, I get at least 2 of those times to play

This idea came to me a few months back when we were checking out a Vietnamese restaurant menu. 

I am a creature of habit and always get Pho. Mini Me got me hooked on it years ago and I am always drawn to it when we go because we just don't go very often. I even get the same Pho everytime I go.

I know 😴 borrrrrrring!

But hey, I can't help it, it is good Pho!

However, the last time I decided to branch out, be bold and order something I have always wanted to try, a Banh Mi sandwich.

OhhhEmmGeee people! What took me so damn long?? #daylatedollarshort

I immediately started thinking about what I could make using those amazing spicy, sour, pickled flavors. 

Then it hit me 💡

A BURGER!!

And that is how this amazing Banh Mi Burger was born. 

I played around a few times with this recipe until I got it dialed into (what I feel is) burger perfection. 

This is a burger that went to Vietnam, fell in love with a Banh Mi, and had a delicious baby!

Ingredients:

For the Pickled Veggies
  • 1 large carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 2 mini (Persian or Kirby) cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
For the Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2-3 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
For the Burgers
  • 1 pound Certified Angus Beef ® brand ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce 
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 3 Kaiser burger buns
  • melted butter (optional)
Optional Toppings
  • Sliced jalapenos
  • Cilantro or micro cilantro

Instructions


  1. Place carrots and cucumber in a pint glass jar.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt to a boil. 
  3. Remove from heat and pour into the jar. 
  4. Place lid on the jar and allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour, turning occasionally and shaking to mix, then refrigerate.
  5. Combine the ground beef with the garlic, fish sauce, and lime zest.
  6. Split the meat into 3 equal portions (1/3rd pound) and lightly form into patties the size of your buns, don't press hard, light touch = tender juicy burgers.
  7. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Make a dent on one side with your thumb to stop the burgers from shrinking while they cook.

  9. If you want your buns toasted, brush them with the melted butter and place on the grill until they are toasted to your liking.
  10. To serve the burgers place a spoonful of the sauce on the bottom bun, then add the burger. Top with pickled carrots and cucumbers, jalapeno, and cilantro.
