Red Wine and Blue All American Burgers
This burger recipe is perfect to celebrate our Memorial Day. Make some purple potatoes and a green salad with strawberries in it for a beautiful plate exploding with color and health.
The Red Wine Chutney
6 to 8 red onions sliced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/3 cup of sugar
1/3 cup red wine
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
Get out a nice big skillet and toss the oil, onions and sugar together in there and cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, till caramelized and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Pour in the red wine and vinegar and simmer uncovered, till the liquid has been reduced to a sticky mixture, about 10 more minutes. Set aside to cool then put in fridge till you want to it.
½ cup of finely chopped onions
2 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
1 pound of ground grass fed beef or lamb
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons of dry breadcrumbs
1 large farm egg
½ cup of blue cheese
Combine onions through egg in a medium bowl and squash it all together with your hands till well blended. (I recommend you wash your hands first.) Divide mixture into 8 equal portions and shape into thin patties. Sprinkle the blue cheese over four of the patties, putting the most cheese on your personal burger. (Just kidding) Top those cheese sprinkled patties, with the remaining, lonely patties and press the edges together to seal. Place in fridge to rest and relax.
Meanwhile, lightly coat your grill racks with a little oil and heat up your BBQ. (These burgers can be cooked under the broiler in the oven too, if you don’t have a BBQ or it is pouring outside.) Place the sizzling patties on the grill and cook about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remember, lean meats are better a bit on the medium rare side. Serve on onion buns with red wine chutney, arugula and whatever else tickles your fancy. Celebrate America’s return to its grass roots.
