It's no secret that we love our burgers and we love our sports. As an official sponsor of NASCAR's ISC Racetracks and Yankee Stadium, we are proud to serve up bold, robust, quality beef burgers for spectators around the track or in the stadium. But with 162 baseball games a year and 38 NASCAR races, it's likely that at lease a few of those events will be hosted at home.
So, when game day has you beckoning for a taste of the ball game, our burgers and dogs are only a trip to the store away, and these game day recipes bring a bit of the taste of stadium to your dinner table.
The "Babe" Burger
1 package of Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted beef burgers
Salt (to taste)
1 yellow onion, sliced into rings
4 slices Swiss cheese
4 sesame seed buns
Baby cornichons (pickles)
In a saute pan over medium to high heat, saute onions until caramelized and slightly crispy on the edges. Remove onions from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add mushrooms, butter and salt and cook over medium high for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Cook your burgers on the grill to desired doneness. Just before removing from the grill, add Swiss cheese to the patties until slightly melted. Place cooked patties on a bun slathered with Dijon mustard. Top with onions, mushrooms and baby cornichons. Add onion rings for a perfect side.

Cook hot dogs on grill. Generously spread mayo onto hoagie roll and add grilled hot dog. Top with bacon/onion mix and four jalapeno rings. Add ketchup and other toppings if desired.
Whether you are at the stadium or near your own grill, there's always a #reasontoburger and a way to get the big league taste of Steakhouse Elite burgers and dogs.
Steakhouse Elite has announced a partnership with the 27-time champion New York Yankees to serve its burgers at concession stands throughout Yankee Stadium. The partnership will also be highlighted through in-stadium signage during the season.
Steakhouse Elite, a New York-based company, produces its burgers from American-raised, responsibly handled beef that is USDA-certified in the highest possible standards of production and safety.
"The Yankees are our hometown team, and we couldn't be more excited to partner with them," said Evan Wexler, Steakhouse Elite COO. "A great day at the ballpark always includes your favorite ballpark food, and we're proud that game days at Yankee Stadium will now include Steakhouse Elite burgers."
"We are excited to be partnering with Steakhouse Elite to feature its burgers at the Stadium, and look forward to working together to augment its brand awareness in the tri-state area and beyond," said Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President, Partnerships.
The partnership with the Yankees represents an expansion of Steakhouse Elite's sports marketing activations, bringing their products to some of the most iconic venues in the country. In February, Steakhouse Elite announced a multi-year, multi-facility deal with the International Speedway Corporation (ISC) to serve its burgers at ISC facilities, including Daytona International Speedway.
Steakhouse Elite burgers can be found at most major retailers across the East Coast. For a full list, visit their Store Locator.

What’s the difference between an average host/hostess and a “Hostess With the Most-est?” Well, to earn the latter title, one must be prepared, creative and pleasantly relaxed while hosting. In other words, really great hosts and hostesses find ways to simplify the hosting routine so they can attend to their guests rather than slave away in the kitchen all day and get overwhelmed with the details.
One way to do this is to find creative ways for your guests to help themselves. When guests are able to help themselves, they are relaxed, they can serve themselves and pick their portion size, accommodate their own tastes and dietary needs, and save the host time on serving up food.
Traditionally, people often do this without even knowing it by setting up a hamburger station, buffet or potluck. But for the host or hostess looking for a more creative idea, why not try a Gourmet Hot Dog Bar?
Setting up a hot dog station is a fun way to let your guests serve themselves and free up more time for the host or hostess to enjoy their company. Setting up the hot dog bar is easy! Just raid your kitchen or local dollar store for condiments and toppings, buy a couple packs of Steakhouse Elite all-beef hot dogs (because, a good host knows the best, all-beef dogs makes guests happy!), and let your guests be the chef!
You can let your guests’ creativity flow, or you can opt to guide them with recipe cards for flavor combinations like these:
Gourmet Hot Dog Recipes
When you create a hot dog station, your guests will come up with 1000's of varieties of custom dog deliciousness, making it a party win! Your guests will have a great time talking about, and sampling, their favorite combinations and you can sit back and play host! And, when you use quality all-beef hot dogs like the ones from Steakhouse Elite, your guests will feel spoiled from first bite, all the way to the last dog standing!

Crunch, savory, satisfying onion rings!
What's better than a late afternoon bite of a fresh onion ring? Well, the only thing we could think is that same bite atop a buttery, delicious beef patty.
Join the burger-ring revolution with your own home-fried onion rings, and then spoil yourself with our Spicy Sriracha Onion Ring Burger recipe.
Panko-Battered Onion Rings
1 large vidalia sweet onion
2 large eggs
1 dash pepper
1/8t garlic powder
1/8t seasoning salt
1-2C panko bread crumbs
oil for frying
Slice onion and separate into rings of desired thickness (we prefer about 1/4" slices).
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and milk and set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, cayenne, pepper, garlic powder, and seasoning salt. Set aside.
Place breadcrumbs in a separate, shallow dish.
Preheat about 1.5 inches of oil in a fry pan over medium heat.
While the oil is heating, take an onion slice and coat with flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, repeat flour/egg dip, and then bread with the panko mixture.
Fry each ring until golden brown (about 1-2 minutes) and them cool in a single layer on paper towels or newspaper.
Homemade onion rings are a great way to spoil your household. Serve them aside your favorite burger as a crunchy sidekick or french fry alternative, or go all the way and serve them atop a Steakhouse Elite burger using this Spicy Sriracha Ring Burger.
Spicy Sriracha Ring Burger
1 package of Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted® Beef Burgers
4 potato hamburger buns
4 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
1 fresh jalapeno (sliced)
4-8 homemade onion rings (see recipe above)
Prep ahead of time the sriracha mayo by mixing 1T of mayonnaise with 1t of sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
To assemble this delicious burger, grill your Steakhouse Elite burgers to desired doneness. Before pulling burgers from the heat, place one slice of cheese on each burger. Once corners of cheese begin to drip due to melt, remove burgers from heat.
Place one cheesy burger patty on the bottom half of a hamburger bun. Place sliced jalapenos atop the cheddar cheese, then top with 1-2 onion rings.
Generously coat the inside of the top half of the hamburger bun with sriracha mayo sauce and place atop the assembled burger.
Onion rings are tasty. Steakhouse Elite burgers are delicious. But when put together, this Spicy Sriracha Ring Burger is a game changer!
First, there was the Mega Meatball, a baseball-sized meatball topped with mozzarella and marinara, so large it served as the main course. Made with the rich, velvety flavor of Steakhouse Elite ground beef, only a quality beef like this could hold up to the density and flavor of a meatball this large.
But we’ve moved on…
Summer’s here and we are interested in something a little hotter, a little spicier, maybe something Mexican-inspired. So, here it is…the Titanic Taco! Because, well, we’re addicted to tacos and the only beef that can hold it’s own in this much quantity is Steakhouse Elite!
Titanic Taco Recipe
1 pound Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted or Grassfed ground beef
4 – 12” tortillas
1/4t garlic powder
1/4t onion powder
1/4t oregano (dried)
1t black pepper
1T chili powder
Prep the taco shells: Heat oven to 375. Lay tortillas directly over 2-3 rungs of the rack, allowing the ends to fall through the rack to create a “U” taco shell shape. If tortillas are too stiff, microwave for a few seconds or toss them over high heat in a pan with a shallow amount of oil. Bake until tortilla holds its shape (about five minutes), then remove from oven and allow to cool.
Prep the taco seasoning: In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, black pepper, chili powder, paprika, salt and cumin. Set aside.
Brown the beef: In a large skillet, brown Steakhouse Elite beef. Drain if needed or desired (note: Steakhouse Elite Grassfed product is so lean, this step may not be required). Add seasoning mix and half a cup of water. Stir together and let simmer for five minutes.
Make the taco: Layer meat inside of large taco shell and top with desired toppings.
That’s all it takes to make one “mega” delicious taco! When you use a premium quality beef like Steakhouse Elite Grassfed beef, you end up with a succulent, flavorful taco that’s never too greasy or lacking in texture and complexity.
When you use Steakhouse Elite beef for your St. Patrick's Day meal, the real pot of gold is on your dinner table. That's because our buttery, savory beef is the perfect compliment to the rich and creamy taste of Guinness stout beer--and Irish classic! Combine the two and you have a recipe that is so tasty, it's far too good to be used only once a year.
Guinness Sloppy Joes
1 package of Steakhouse Elite ground beef (any variety)
1/2C yellow onion
1/2C shredded carrots
1/2C diced mushrooms
1/2C diced celery
1/2C diced bell peppers
1/2C fresh diced tomatoes
1/4C tomato paste
1T Dijon mustard
1/2C beef broth
1C Guinness beer
In a large skillet, saute Steakhouse Elite beef until almost completely browned. Drain if desired. Add to pan with beef: onion, carrots, mushrooms, celery, bell peppers and tomatoes and cook on medium high for 4-5 minutes until softened.
Lower heat to medium and add tomato paste, Worcestershire, Dijon mustard and ketchup. Mix well and add beef broth and beer. Let simmer until liquid is reduced by half, leaving a slightly watery but paste-like consistency.
Spoon onto a Brioche bun and top with sharp cheddar.
NASCAR tailgating is no one-meal ordeal. Racing tailgaters commit to a long weekend filled hot-off-the grill delights for breakfast, lunch, dinner and post-dinner!
Filling your ice chest with a pack of rubbery hot dogs, bag of orange chips and a sad bologna sandwich is a rookie move that will have you gunning for your neighboring tailgater's grill. So don't be that guy! Fire up Steakhouse Elite all weekend--even for breakfast!
This Race Day Rise and Shine Burger has all the best parts of breakfast--bacon, eggs and toasted bread--but with a beefy twist good enough for the Daytona 500. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or in the concessions, there's always a #reasontoburger with Steakhouse Elite--on your grill, at your house, in the speedway or at your tailgate.
Race Day Rise and Shine Burger
1 Package of Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Beef Burgers
1 Package of Buns (or for a breakfast twist, use an English muffin)
1 C Shoestring Hash Browns (pre-made)
8 Slices of Bacon (pre-crisped, and cut into 2" pieces)
4 Slices of American Cheese
Before you leave for your race weekend, pre-prepare the shoe string hash browns and place in a tailgate-friendly plastic storage bag. Crisp the bacon and store in a tailgate-friendly container that will keep the bacon from from getting smashed (we recommend cutting the bacon into 2" pieces for easy storage).
When ready for your breakfast burger, light up the grill and grill your Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted burgers to desired doneness and then top with American cheese.
Place four burger buns or English muffins on the grill to toast them up. Place BBQ-friendly skillet on the grill and pan fry four eggs over easy.
Tailgater Tip: Eggs can be hard to cook over a grill, so another option is to crack the eggs into a muffin pan over the grill and cook them over-easy that way. Or, make a bath for them out of tin foil and cook them over the grill that way! Don't want to pack whole eggs in your cooler? No problem! Cook them over the hash browns and bacon ahead of time in a muffin pan and just reheat the potato/bacon/egg combo over the grill and pop them out an place over your burger.
Stack the breakfast burger as follows: lower bun, beef burger with cheese, hash browns, bacon, over easy egg and top bun. You can assemble the burger and place it back on the grill for a few minutes to melt it all together if desired.
There's no better way to rise and shine than at a NASCAR tailgate with a bold and beefy breakfast burger. But, if you forgot to pack the Steakhouse Elite, don't fret! Steakhouse Elite is now proudly served at ISC concession stands on race day!
