The thing I love most about burgers is that you can change a few of the ingredients and get a totally different variation on the classic dish. Today, I made juicy chipotle burgers. The sweet and sour balsamic-Dijon vinaigrette on the green beans made a good pairing with the smoky burgers- here’s how I made them!
1 lb 85% lean beef (this will give you a juicier burger than 90-95% lean)
Half of a small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
About 2 tbsp Panko bread crumbs
About half a tsp salt
About a tsp soy sauce
About 1.5-2 tsp smoky chipotle Tabasco sauce (this stuff is key… And super bomb- put it on anything)
Mix it all together!
Steam the green beans, drain them, sprinkle some salt over them, and pour the vinaigrette over them. Toss in some toasted sliced almonds for crunch.. And flare – so fancy.
Vinaigrette- whisk together 1tsp Dijon mustard, about 1/4 cup olive oil, about 1 tsp honey, and about 2 tsp balsamic vinegar.
