In 2011 I attended the 'Chefs of the Coast' cook-off where 4 chefs battled it out cooking their own personal recipe using Four Roses Bourbon®. I thought that I could absolutely make a burger worthy of the Four Roses name and this is it. It's a savory burger that is seasoned to perfection and topped with bacon and other assorted toppings.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix ground beef, bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, steak seasoning, and garlic salt in a bowl; divide and shape into 2 patties.

  • Cook on the preheated grill for about 5 minutes; turn, top each burger with bacon and Cheddar cheese, and continue cooking until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes more for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve on split buns topped with tomato and lettuce.

DELICIOUS! Made exactly as written and would not change a thing. I formed these earlier in the day and put them in the fridge just to let all the flavors mingle. I also added some onion along w/ the lettuce and tomato. Great flavor...Will be making these again for sure! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

These were ok but a little on the sweet side for me. I did use deer instead of beef due to a food allergy in my household. While the had a good flavor they just didn't have the wow factor we were expecting. Read More

Excellent! I used ground pork instead. It makes sweeter burgers so I suggest a pepperjack cheese or some fresh jalapeno for a balancing kick. Read More

These were pretty good but I was expecting more. I'll make again but it won't be a regular. Read More

I made this recipe with 2lbs of meat and so adjusted the seasonings to match. My husband and were excited with the first bite but soon our bites slowed... We had to add more and more ketchup! What we think happened is that the Worcestershire sauce was just too much. It became overwhelming. I will definitely be trying this recipe again using less Worcestershire sauce by a lot (for 2lbs it called for 2tblsp and 2tsp). I'll start there. I think it'll make a big difference! Looking forward to a refined recipe and will update this when I've got it figured out! Read More
