directions

  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Using your hands, lightly shape the ground sirloin into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Try to leave some air in the burger and avoid packing them too densely.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lightly drizzle the red pepper quarters with olive oil.
  • Cook the burgers on both sides over the hot grill for about 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium burgers.
  • At the same time, grill the peppers for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • Lightly toast the buns on the grill.
  • Serve the burgers on toasted buns with grilled red peppers, slices of sweet white onion and crumbled blue cheese.

    These were very good, a gourmet burger while working with a patriotic theme. I had never roasted peppers on the grill before and was pleasantly suprised at how easy and tasty they turned out. The combination of roasted pepper, blue cheese and sweet onion on the burger was wonderful.

    I made this for my husband and he enjoyed the blue cheese in it! Thanks Laurie! Made for Election Day tag game.

    I made these for Labor Day dinner (red, white and blue = American holiday). There's few things better than a bleu cheese burger and this was no exception. I didn't have a red bell pepper so my "red" was a tomato instead. Easy to make and very very good.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>Before I get to the details let me tell you how I rate recipes.....and tell you how I feel about others ratings! <br /> <br />5 STARS....This recipe was excellant, we liked it very much, the directions were very clear and if I made any minor substitutions I noted it. It would most likely be made again, many times! <br /> <br />4 STARS....This recipe was good, we liked it but I made changes either in taste or it was not clear in something, but I would consider making it again. <br /> <br />3 STARS....This recipe was not something that got approval from the majority. Either it just didnt work in preparation, directions, or taste. I will tell you why and would not make it again unless I altered it much! <br /> <br />2, 1 STARS.....I DO NOT give these as I feel they are NOT worthy....especially if the recipe previously had good reviews and by my giving a low one would jeopardize the ratings. I would appreciate this reciprocated with reviews to my recipes. <br /> <br />0 STARS....COMMENTS I will leave no stars and comments on something that did not work out for me and I will be honest and tell you why. <br /> <br />I DETEST IT WHEN PEOPLE CHANGE YOUR RECIPE OR DONT EVEN MAKE IT THEN LEAVE YOU LOW REVIEWS. PEOPLE WHO DO THAT ARE JUST BEING VINDICTIVE OR JUST PLAIN STUPIDLY CRUEL. Examples of some I've gotten would be: 1 star...This doesnt sound like something we would like 2 stars...too sweet for me, (this was on a all 5 star recipe). <br /> <br /> <br />Now for the details: <br />I was born, raised and still live in the same midwestern town where comfort food is what we thrive on, however my dream is to retire to the northwoods of Wisconsin.. (the sooner the better IMHO)! <br /> <br />I relish a recipe that is simple, quick and tastes great as I am a divorced mom to 4 very busy, active young adults (27, 25, 20 year old daughters and a 21 year old son.) Cooking time is at a premium as everyone is so busy, I never usually know who will be at my house for supper! I also try to find things that will reheat well. <br /> <br />I have worked for 30 years in the accounting field and presently semi retired. It is very nice for a change to not have to deal with the everyday stress of deadlines and office politics! It has been great cooking for pleasure, at my leisure, instead of to feed the troops! <br /> <br />Cooking relaxes me so I do it often and I love to cook for people who appreciate it. It is nothing for me to start a recipe at 10pm right before bedtime, and yes I have cooked all nite. Kind of a marathon!! <br /> <br />Cookbooks are my passion and I can't resist the ones that churches, schools etc. put together and well as the ones in the grocery stores. My collection numbers well over 2000 and where as some people go to bed with a good novel, my nightstand is full of cookbooks! <br /> <br />I love to bake and its nothing for me to make 15-20 different kinds of cookies and candies for the holidays. I guess that it has rubbed off on my oldest daughter who is a culinary school graduate and knee deep in pastry classes, hoping to become a pastry chef! <br /> <br />In March of 2002 I had gastric bypass, weight loss surgery and I have lost 125 pounds FOREVER, so now when I do cook it IS for everyone else to enjoy. <br /> <br />I love Zaar and all the friends I have made here, this sight is so addictive but yet so much fun! And the recipes aren't bad either..LOL! I know that in the years since Ive been a permanent fixture of this site I have acquired many great recipes and tons of cooks that I am proud to call my friends! I have also tried many foods that years ago I would never have even imagined.</p>
