Whether you are a NASCAR fan, football fan, or even rodeo fan, you love what you love! We want you to feel that way about our burgers, too. When you roll into a tailgate spot, pop open your tent and heat up the grill, we want to be a part of the experience that makes you love the sport you love.
If hosting a tailgate (at home or at the racetrack) is on your 2018 Bucket List, then you know good food and lots of it is required for a perfect race day. That’s why we’ve pulled together some of our favorite NASCAR race day burger recipes. Since our fresh and frozen burger varieties require ZERO work to make a great tasting burger, you can put your energy into the bun and toppings for an over-the-top burger that is sure to make fans out of anyone who stops by your grill.
NASCAR Race Day Burger Recipes Using Steakhouse Elite Burgers
12 Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Beef Burgers (frozen or fresh)
6 Potato buns, split
1/4C White onion, chopped
1-1/2C cups cheddar, shredded
4 t Mustard
4 t Dill pickle relish
White onion slices
In a small bowl, combine the cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and relish; mix well.
Grill all 12 Steakhouse Elite burgers to desired doneness (Note: a touch of salt on the top just before grilling will add a nice hint of seasoning). Before pulling off the grill, spoon 2T of cheesy mayo mustard mix on six of the burgers, then place another bare burger atop those and let cheese melt, so the burgers create a sandwich with cheesy mixture in the middle.
Serve on buns with lettuce, onion and tomato
The “King” Burger
6 Steakhouse Elite Angus Beef Burgers
6 Sesame seed buns
Dash Worcestershire (optional)
6 Slices American cheese
Burger sauce (mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, onion, garlic, and vinegar)
Shredded iceberg lettuce
White onion slices
Pre-make your burger sauce using one-part ketchup, one part mayonnaise, 1/4 part onion, a squirt of mustard, pinch of garlic and dash of vinegar. Mix and put in tailgate-friendly container for easy spreading later.
Season your Angus burgers with a dash of salt and dash Worcestershire (if desired), then grill to perfection. Just before removing from the grill, place one slice of American cheese on top until cheese melts enough to barely curve around the burger.
On a fresh sesame bun, generously lather the burger sauce on both sides, and then top the bun with the burger, lettuce, tomatoes and white onion.
The "Jr." Slider Burger
1 Package of Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Sliders
1 Package Hawaiian sweet roles
1 Small ham steak
1 Can crushed pineapple, drained
6 Slices Swiss cheese
Grill your Steakhouse Elite Kobe-Crafted Sliders to your desired doneness and melt a small piece of Swiss cheese on top. While burgers are cooking, slice the ham steak into petite pieces small enough to fit on a Hawaiian roll.
Lather the Hawaiian roll with a generous amount of mayonnaise and Dijon, then place slider burger on roll and top with ham steak and crushed pineapple.

6 Steakhouse Elite Angus Burgers
BBQ Sauce (1/2C beer, 2T brown sugar, 2T ketchup, 1T chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, 1t Worcestershire sauce)
