Barbecue Chipotle Burgers - Recipe of the Week
This week for our Recipe of the Week, we want to spice things up and add some flavor to the table: Barbecue Chipotle Burgers, complete with a beer-based barbecue sauce, and a little twist on top.
Here's what you will need for this recipe:
-One pound of ground beef
-1/2 cup of beer
-2 tablespoons of brown sugar
-2 tablespoons of ketchup
-1 tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
-1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
-4 slices of frozen Texas Toast
-2 spears pickled okra, sliced
To prepare barbecue sauce, combine beer, brown sugar, ketchup, chipotle peppers and Worcestershire sauce in saucepan. Bring it to a boil. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes until sauce is thickened. Set it aside.
Lightly shape ground beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
Prepare Texas Toast according to package directions. Cut each piece of toast in half.
For each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce over one toast half. Top with burger, another tablespoon sauce and okra slices. Close sandwich. If you are not a fan of okra, dill pickle chips or pickled jalapeno peppers may be substituted.
