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!
