Havent seen anything similar to this on here, so figured I would share. Came up with these at home and Ive really loved them.

1 lb. ground sirloin 97%
1 lb. ground turkey breast 98%
1 lb. ground bison 97%
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup BBQ Sauce (I prefer Stubbs or Sweet Baby Rays)
1 whole medium sized vidalia onion (rough chopped)

Thoroughly combine all contents in a large mixing bowl and then make into 1/2lb.- 3/4lb. patties, grill at a lower heat until med. well/well and then serve on a large toasted bun with a cold beer.

Give them a shot, can't recommend them enough.

Why wouldn't you recommend them since you say you "loved them"?


He said he can't recommend them enough....meaning he can't tell as many people about them as he would like. :hello:

EDIT: sounds really good, except maybe the bison. (never had it)

Bison is similar to beef only its flavor is much much much better, and it has a better macronutrient profile.

Bison is leaner than beef on average.

This sounds good for the Maker's Mark challenge!!!

Sounds good
I like grilling but seem to never get it quite right. Anyone got some good basic tips? lol
:confused: I've got the beer part down to a science?

I deleted my idiotic post.

I somehow read "enough" for "though"

**** has to be good!

At Whole Foods market you can get it around 3.99$/lb. which is quite comparable to very lean beef

I made some burgers to take to a friend's Barbecue the other day, and I was confidently assured by many that they were the best burgers they'd ever eaten.

This sounds complicated but I love food and I love cooking :), so if you have a good herb and spice collection, feel free to replicate:
Organic mince
one whole egg
half an onion
two cloves garlic
one chopped dried chilli pepper (minus seeds)
a pinch of coriander seeds and a few cumin seeds, toasted and then ground up.
teaspoon coriander powder
two teaspoons red wine vinegar
a big pinch of dried oregano.
two fresh basil leaves.
Salt and lots of black pepper.
one slice of wholemeal bread, shredded into crumbs.

Oh yeah! :drooling:
They still didn't actually take that long to make, but were awesome. The chilli gave them a little bit of heat, the coriander, vinegar, oregano and basil made them taste pretty fresh and clean and a bit sweet. A nicely layered flavour.

Tasted good, fed me after exercise, and I impressed some girls. Result all round!

Oh by the way your idea of mixing the meat sounds great. I've never eaten Bison and I'm very intrigued. I don't know how available it is in the UK though...

Hey now, Ive seen quite a few female Bison roaming around the streets in the UK!! It wouldnt have been very lean meat though. :)
