My picture looks just as good
Favorite Brand Name 100 Best Hamburger Recipes Copyright 2003
6 tablespoons steak sauce(regular or bold and spicy), divided
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles, divided
3 tablespoons dairy sour cream I used lite sour cream
1 pound ground beef
4 ( 6 ½-inch) flour tortillas
1 medium tomato, sliced I omitted this
1 cup shredded lettuce
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces) I used a cheddar-jack blend
Blend 2 tablespoons steak sauce, 2 tablespoons chiles, and sour cream. cover; refrigerate until ready to serve.
Mix beef, remaining ¼ cup steak sauce and chiles. Shape mixture into 4 (4-inch) oval patties. Grill burgers over medium heat or broil 6 inches from heat source 5 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink in center. Place each burger in center of 1 tortilla (I heated my tortillas in a skillet to soften them) ; top evenly with tomato, lettuce, cheese and chilled sauce. Fold edges of tortillas in like a burrito. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
I've had my eye on this recipe for quite some time. They just looked so good in the picture in the cookbook. I'm a sucker for a creamy burger sauce. I wasn't disappointed. This isn't a 'call-all-your-friends-and-tell-them-about-it' recipe but personally I found that it hit the spot last night. The chiles and steak sauce added flavor to the meat but they still tasted like burgers (not meatloaf, like the Aisle 6 Beef Burgers). I used the GF grill because the weather was questionable and I'm glad I did because the meat mixture was quite soft and the patties would have been hard to handle on the grill.
I freestyled some great rice with this too. I cooked up brown rice the night before, then when it was time for dinner, I steamed/sautéed some red peppers (straight from the freezer) and then added green onions, leftover corn, the rice and some taco sauce. Oh, and about a teaspoon of butter to round out the flavors.
Everything I've made from this cookbook has been quite tasty. That's why I love the Favorite Brand Name cookbooks. They have a website too. There have a large selection of recipes on there.
Question of the Day: Do you have any favorite websites for recipes? (besides this one LOL!)
