When life gives you limes, make margaritas. When life also hands you a pound of Steakhouse Elite beef and pint of tequila, make Margarita Burgers!
It's no secret that we are #addictedtoburgers, so what could be better to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than a tequila-infused burger that perfectly complements a margarita on the rocks? Slightly salty with hints lime and orange and little bite of tequila in the end, these burgers are juicy, succulent and a refreshing take on the traditional burger.
So go ahead, tequila, lime, siesta and repeat! You don't need an excuse like Cinco de Mayo to fire up the grill...use this recipe anytime you have a little tequila to spare.
Tequila Infused Margarita Burgers
1 lb Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Ground Beef
1 egg (optional, for binding the patty)
1 small red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3T fresh cilantro, minced
1T cayenne pepper
1t red pepper flakes
1C tequila blanco
1/4C lime juice
1/4C orange juice
Using one pound of Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Ground Beef, mix with your hands all the patty ingredients until well distributed. Make into patties of desirable size (one pound generally makes four patties). Lay patties flat onto a shallow metal dish, like a disposable BBQ pan.
Mix marinade in a small bowl and then pour over patties. If patties are not completely covered by the marinade, turn them after two hours. Marinate in the refrigerator at least two hours.
When ready, grill to desired doneness. Place on a bun (ciabatta style buns are recommended) and top with desired toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onions, jalapeno, salsa, guacamole and grilled peppers. Top off with a cold margarita on the rocks!
The story of Steakhouse Elite begins with two men--one, a butcher with ties to the Meatpacking District and the other a 5th generation cattle rancher--who wanted to create a better a burger. Using their knowledge of beef crafting and cattle ranching, they did just that, and the Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted burger was born.
Years later, the same two people are constantly looking for ways to tailor their recipes to create better burgers, dogs and ground beef for customers. Though our customers have different needs, one thing remains in common: they want better beef.
Today, Steakhouse Elite proudly has three product lines tailored to the needs of their customers: Kobe-Crafted, Grass Fed and Angus beef lines.
Our Kobe-Crafted Beef - New Age Flavor
Those looking for the same old burger or beef need not apply: our signature Kobe-Crafted products--which include burgers, ground beef, sliders, beef brisket burgers, hot dogs, frozen burgers, Ribeye burgers, meatballs and meatloaf--are a perfectly-balanced and infused with the distinct and buttery flavor of Kobe beef from Wagyu cattle. One bite of this beef and it is clear: this is no ordinary beef!

When was the last time doing the right thing was also easy? With our Grass Fed line of beef, you get the same delicious flavor of meticulously cared for beef in a product that is grass fed, pasture-raised, rich in nutrients, and free of added hormones and antibiotics.
