Y’all…these are divine. This is a Pioneer Woman recipe that I tried for this year’s super bowl party! It was juicy, spicy and everything I hoped it would be! The Pioneer Woman’s recipes have yet to disappoint me! For her original recipe click the link below for awesomeness! This recipe would also be amazing as a full size burger!
I will definitely make this recipe again. Everyone at the party really seemed to enjoy them! These bad boys are sweet and spicy!
I did make 3 tiny changes to the ingredients:
1. I added sliced pepper jack on top of each patty.
2. I used 1/2 jalapenos and 1/2 roasted red peppers in the sauce instead of just jalapenos.
3. I seasoned the patties with salt, pepper, AND chili powder. 🙂
– 2 lbs of ground beef
– chili powder
– 4 tbsp butter
– butter spread (for toasting the buns)
– 1/2 cup whiskey
– 1 cup BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
– 1 yellow onion, diced
– 3 tbsp jarred jalapenos, diced
– 3 tbsp jarred roasted red peppers, diced
Make 12 patties and season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. (I let them bask in the seasoning for about 3 hours in the fridge.)
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Cook the patties in the butter on both sides until pink in the center. I did this in 2 batches of 6. Set patties aside.
Add onion and peppers to the butter and cook for about 5 minutes.
Slowly add in the whiskey and BBQ sauce.
Return the patties to the skillet with sauce and finished cooking the patties til well done, flipping occasionally. I was able to fit all 12 patties in the skillet for this step.
For the buns, heavily butter the insides and toast until dark brown and crispy in a separate skillet.
Place a slice of cheese on the bottom of each bun.
Then place a patty on each bun.
Spoon extra sauce on each patty.
Then slap a 2nd piece of cheese on each patty.
Put the top bun on and DIG IN!!!
