Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the ketchup: in a bowl, whisk the ketchup ingredients together; let stand for an hour or so (refrigerate if not ready to use after 1-2 hours).
  2. Make the burgers: in a bowl, gently mix the buffalo meat, garlic, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
  3. Form mixture into 4 patties, each 3/4-inch thick.
  4. Lightly oil the grill or skillet over med-high heat; cook burgers 1 ½-2 minutes per side for medium rare or to desired degree of doneness (ground buffalo cooks faster than ground beef).
  5. Serve cooked patties on sesame seed buns; top patties with Brooklyn Ketchup.

We loved these burgers. Loaded with flavor and DH really enjoyed the ketchup with the tobasco. These were very juicy and we grilled them approx. 7 minutes.

This was REALLY excellent, and I had raving reviews from my dinner audience. I had personally never eaten buffalo meat before and I have to say it was hands down the best burger that I've ever eaten, much less made personally.
I had uncooked buffalo left-overs the next day... So I sauteed green peppers, broke the patties up to cook, mixed in the peppers, and covered with cheese for a really good sandwich

These are probably some of the best burgers I have had in a long time. I loved the taste of them, and the sauce was excellent! I made homemade hambuger buns (40-Minute Hamburger Buns) and served the burgers with Garlic Broccoli Spears. I didn't need to put anything else on the burgers - they're perfect! Thanks, this recipe is a keeper! :)
