These are SPECTACULAR burgers. I used a Shiraz (two buck Chuck)for my wine. I used dried onions (I can only imagine how much better it would have been with fresh) as my son would have a FIT to see onion pieces in his burger. I also used 1/2 t. garlic powder as we are fanatics. I had a "smoky" seasoned salt from Penzeys that I used as well. They were juicy, fantastically seasoned, and with some sauteed mushrooms on top I thought this to be one of the best burgers I have had in a long, long time.
my husband and i hosted a BBQ themed wine tasting. I used a red Zin b/c I didn't have Burgundy. We paired these with a Cab Franc. It was the hit of the party. I am still emailing out the recipe!!!!
I love cooking with Burgundy wine but I do not enjoy drinking it at all. I made 7 burgers and cooked them on my George Foremann Grill. The wine was the predominant flavor. You could not get the same robust flavor if you tried substituting the wine for grape juice. I made this for ZWT III 2007 game - French, Creole and Cajun Challenges - The Art of Cooking with French Spirits
I made these for on the grill. The wine gives a fantastic flavor and keeps things moist too. Thanks for sharing!
This was a fine tasting burger! Made half a recipe and used half the wine but the same seasonings. Ate it as is - it was tender and juicy! Can't wait to try these outside on the gril (made them on my indoor gril) with some mushrooms and cheese. Thanks Caroline!
Wow! what a flavorful burger. I used only 1 lb of ground beef, but kept all the other seasoning the same. I used Cabernet, homemade seasoning salt (Homemade Seasoned Salt), and skipped the worchestershire sauce (not allowed during passover) and the cheese. I'm used to making burgers with some bread crumbs added...sorta like a meatloaf...so I forgot they shrink up pretty much. I made 5 burgers out of my 1 lb of hamburger, but next time I would only make 4 since they got a tad small after grilling. Wonderful flavor...they are going into my 10 star cookbook!
These burgers were very good! They were a great variation on the normal burger. The wine taste was good and not overpowering. Thanks!
