Biggest Baddest Best Hamburgers

***This recipe for Biggest Baddest Best Hamburgers is an entry into BUDWEISER SAUCES ULTIMATE BLOGGER RECIPE CHALLENGE-FREEDOM RESERVE recipe contest and it is a TABLE BANGING good recipe too! Budweiser sent me free sauces and marinades to use in the creation of this recipe, however, the post, recipe and descriptions are all my own thoughts, ya’ll know how I am.****

Something fun came in my email a couple of months ago and I can’t wait to tell you about it! Loaves and Dishes was invited to participate in a Recipe Challenge using some new sauces and marinades from the Budweiser Company and thus we have Biggest Baddest Best Hamburgers.

Ya’ll know what that means, I was busy like a mad scientist in my tiny North Carolina kitchen creating and running to the grill with one recipe and then another.

Of course, I had to enlist the help of my CTO (Chief Tasting Officer), Mr. Loaves and Dishes, who states that he personally approves each of these recipes.

You’ll find three of these recipes rolling in here over the next couple of days and I sure hope you give them all a try because, boy howdy, they are GOOD.

Budweiser has outdone themselves on these sauces and marinades and I mean that wholeheartedly. They are fantastic.

THIS Biggest Baddest Best Hamburgers

What I can say about this burger is that it is super juicy and moist with a smoky flavorful taste that will have you BEGGING for more, even long after your belly has said, “STOP! I’m FULL!”.

Don’t set the burger platter near your seat unless you WANT to catch yourself cutting off “just a small bite” more until the whole platter is gone!

Hello Burger!

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE Biggest Baddest Best Hamburgers

  • It’s important to use the right cut of beef. In this case, I used sirloin steak which has a wonderful beefy flavor.
  • You’ll notice that having COLD meat is key for this recipe, it is important that you follow the directions exactly so that the burger clings together but isn’t sticky and gummy.
  • When patting out the burgers, handle the meat as little as possible, however, press it together well so that it clings together while you are grilling it.
  • It is SUPER important to oil your grill grates very well before you set the burgers on the grill so that they will not stick.
  • Please DO NOT USE non stick cooking spray on your grill while the fire is burning. I want you to keep your eyelashes, head hair, facial hair and arm hair. Besides, singed hair smells terrible and will ruin the experience of eating this most delicious burger you ever put in your mouth!
  • If you love cheeseburgers, this is EXACTLY the burger for a slice of real provolone or cheddar. We have a lactose sensitive someone at our house and that is why there’s no drippy cheese on this particular burger, but believe me, they are EXCELLENT with cheese!

  • Using a food processor, process about ½ cup of sirloin steak chunks mixed with ¼ cup ground pork and a few pieces of bacon until it looks like ground beef (about 15-20 pulses).

  • Grill over medium heat until cooked through.
  • Serve hot on soft buns with your favorite burger toppings.
