Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices frozen Texas Toast
  • 2 spears pickled okra, sliced

Cooking:

  1. To prepare barbecue sauce, combine beer, brown sugar, ketchup, chipotle peppers and Worcestershire sauce in saucepan; bring to a boil. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes until sauce is thickened; set aside.

  2. Lightly shape Ground Beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties.  Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Texas Toast according to package directions.  Cut each piece of toast in half. 

    Cook's Tip: Fresh Texas toast, buttered, may be used instead of frozen product.
  4. For each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce over one toast half. Top with burger, another tablespoon sauce and okra slices. Close sandwich.

    Cook's Tip: Dill pickle chips or pickled jalapeño peppers may be substituted for pickled okra.
