DIRECTIONS

  • Season meat your favorite way and form three patties. Do not over work meat and make too compact or you will have meatloaf burgers. I think 1 pound of meat makes three perfect burgers.
  • Lightly butter split hamburger/onion rolls and pan fry until toasted. Or you may just dry toast them if you wish without butter. (I get a wonderful jalapeño/cheddar bun from my grocery bakery).
  • Chop onion and bell pepper coarsely and fry in a little oil until the onions are caramelized nicely and the bell pepper is wilted.
  • Pour off excess oil and add the steak sauce and heat through and set aside in a bowl.
  • Grill or pan fry hamburger patties (like Queen Bergy does!) until done to your liking.
  • Heat broiler. Yes--you are reading this right-- heat your broiler!
  • ---------------------------------------.
  • Assemble your Bergy Burger.
  • Spread mustard (if using it)on toasted buns. Place a hamburger patty on bottom bun and top with bell pepper/onion/steak sauce mixture. Add pickled jalapeño slices. (if you are using them) Lay a thick slice or two of pepper jack or Monterey jack cheese on top.
  • Guess what? Put it under your broiler. After having made this a couple of times I find that doing this keeps the onion/pepper mixture in place while eating it and the melted cheese has a better flavor. Only broil for a minute or so. You just want the cheese to melt well and drape over the ingredients to hold them in place.
  • Remove from broiler and add the top bun and serve with your favorite oven fries recipe. That's what Queen Bergy would do.
