The Ultimate Brisket Burger-Ingredients:
- Ground Beef, 2 pounds, preferably ground chuck
- Salt and black pepper
- Chopped smoked brisket, about 1 pound
- Prepared coleslaw, or our popular Slaw for Sandwiches
- 6″ deli buns or hoagie rolls
- Barbecue sauce, homemade or bottled
- Cider vinegar
Making The Ultimate Brisket Burger:
- Preheat grill for 375 degrees F or medium-high heat.
- In a large bowl, combine ground beef with minced garlic. Form into 4-5 equal-sized oblong patties (about the same length as the deli buns)—season with salt and pepper
- Grill burger patties for 6-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature (in the thickest part of patty reaches 160-165 degrees F.
- Remove grilled patties from heat and place them onto a cutting board and lightly tent with aluminum foil.
- Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise with barbecue sauce and cider vinegar—transfer sauce to a condiment bottle for easier application.
- Place garlic burger patties onto the deli buns, top with warmed sliced brisket, drizzle with sauce, finish off with a nice helping of coleslaw, and dig in!
Storing Leftovers and Tips:
- Store patties in an airtight container in your fridge for three days.
- Coleslaw will be good in the refrigerator for up to two days. Discard after this time, as it will become mushy the longer it sits. To avoid this, make up the slaw dressing, store it in the fridge, and only dress the shredded cabbage as needed.
