BBQ Burgers

Burgers get a kick from a homemade BBQ spice mix. Then they're cooled down with some creamy coleslaw served right on top.

  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 20 minutes.
  2. Gently mix the chuck and sirloin together in a large bowl, making sure not to overwork the mixture.
  3. Combine the paprika, brown sugar, cayenne, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, mustard powder and onion powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the beef along with the Worcestershire sauce and fold gently to combine. Form the beef into 4 3/4-inch-thick patties, each about 4-inches in diameter. Sprinkle them generously with salt and a pepper.
  4. Put the patties in the hot skillet (do not press down with a spatula). When the patties are seared and browned on one side, about 3 1/2 minutes, flip and cook on the other side until browned and the burgers are medium-rare, about 3 1/2 minutes more.
  5. Put the burgers on buns and top with coleslaw and serve with potato chips if using.
