A Tale of Two Burgers

We've been grilling fools over here lately, and I wanted to share 2 fabulous burger recipes with you. They are so good. You should make them.

First up is a burger from the latest Food Network Magazine. The lead story on the cover is Best Burgers From Bobby Flay, promoting his new book Burgers, Fries and Shakes. I saw enough reviews on blogs to know that this is a book worth owning. I was drawn to the recipe for his Dallas Burger, a burger with homemade bbq sauce, dry rub, and coleslaw. It's a recipe he created for his wife, who loves bbq'd brisket. We love brisket too, so this was the one to try first.

The burger is a little time consuming - if you go whole hog you make not only the burger patties from scratch, but also the dry rub, coleslaw and bbq sauce. But not an awful amount of time. Be patient, it's worth it.

This burger is SO GOOD, and it's the bbq sauce and coleslaw that really make it fabulous.

Look at that! We had them 2 nights in a row. I think I'm drooling a little right now.....

Dallas Burger


The other burger is also from Food Network, from their Ultimate Recipe Showdown show. I've only seen the show once, but luckily for me, it was the Burger episode, the episode that brought this burger into my life.

Sorry if I sound a little dramatic, but damn, this Vietnamese Bistro Burger rocks.

You may recall my recent post about how much we love and miss Vietnamese food. This is another easy flavorful Vietnamese recipe that we will be making a lot of. The patty is made of ground pork seasoned with lime, ginger, soy and fish sauce. Make sure you make the pickled carrot and daikon salad, it's fabulous on the burger.

I could go on for days about how wonderful this burger is. I won't though. I'll just say one more time it's easy and delicious and hopefully you are going to try these, cause you'll love them.

The Dallas Burger first, then the Vietnamese Bistro Burger.
You have the cleanest looking grill I've ever seen.
I'm thinking pretty hard I need to replace our grill. Maybe I can do these two burgers for our 4th of July grill.

Well now I have to go and replace our barbecue that broke last month. Wasn't going to, but I HAVE TO TRY THESE BURGERS!!!!!!!

Just ate the leftover bistro burgers for dinner. Definitely my favorite burger right now.
My only quibble is that the pickled salad smells like feet. Tastes great, but smells awful. Be forewarned.

The bistro burger looks delicious! It reminds me of the Vietnamese sandwich place by where I used to work which had the marinated veggies on the sandwiches. Bring a couple of those back to the office and the whole place smelled like feet for hours--but they were good!

I had a homemade burger tonight, it makes such a difference in the flavour. Summer bbq season is officially started!

Lien said...

Wow these look soooo good, you guys on the other side of the pond make the bestlooking burgers!
I'm drooling and it's only 6 am!

I picked up a copy of the Food Network magazine at Costco in the States along with my 4 lbs of butter for $5. I oggled Bobby's burgers too!!!

OMG thank you for posting these recipes. It's burger season with Summer(but when is it a bad time for a burger).

We love Brisket and Vietanemese cuisine in my household so these are perfect to try!
