You know exactly where the beef is in these big, juicy eight-ounce burgers. We use ground sirloin for the best, beefiest flavor, but ground chuck will work just fine. By mixing the sauce in with the meat, you get the barbecue before it even hits the grill.

Serve it up on toasted sesame seed buns or onion rolls, and top it off with lettuce and sliced tomato.

  1. 1Mix all the ingredients except the cheese and onion together in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Shape into 6 patties, each 1 inch thick.
  2. 2Lightly oil the grill or a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the burgers to the desired degree of doneness, at least 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Top with the cheese and onion for the last minutes of cooking.

Beverage pairing: Galena Priorat, Spain. Barbecue-style beef likes big, bold fruit flavors and that’s what this red blend from Spain’s rocky Priorat region delivers. But the wine also shows notes of wild herbs and has a smoky mineral and oak note that should resonate with well-cooked beef.
