I was given products in this post for the purpose of review. I was not paid to write this review
In the summer my family loves cooking out. With baseball, vaction and all the other stuff it is tough planning BIG dinners! But just because I don't have time to make big dinners doesn't mean I want to start giving up good tasting food. Thankfully my hubby is a grill master (or at least that is what he calls himself) And okay I admit it the man is pretty good at grilling up food! Most of the time his great flavor comes from whatever sauces or marinades he used.
Stubb's offers a whole array of sauces, that making grilling easy and delicious! And Rocky Stubblefield who is the grandson of Stubb's founder wants to some tips and recipes that are going to making grilling even better
**May is the official kickoff of grilling season with Memorial Day and National burger month. Stubb's encourages all food lovers to try new traditions this summer, including boosting their favorite burger with condiments that pack more flavor and great taste.
Say goodbye to those boring ketchup covered burgers and hello tasty burgers
Here are a few sauce recipes that can take that burger to the next level
-Mustard + Original Stubb's BBQ Sauce- 1/4 mustard 1 cup BBQ
-Bang BANG Sauce 1/2 up of mayonnaise 3/4 cup of Stubb's Original BBQ. 1 Huge tablesppon of hot sauce!
-Spicy Mayo 1/2 cup of mayo and 3 tablespoons of Stubb's BBQ sauce
Ummmm yeah to heck with ketchup I am covering my burgers with some bang bang sauce for now on!
But that isn't all, if your grilling techniques aren't there it doesn't matter how good the sauce is. So Rocky has shared some of his favorite grilling tips with us as well
-Start with a clean grill so your burgers don't stick. He suggest using an onion, you simply but it half and rub it across the grill! No harsh chemicals and plus it gives a little extra flavor to you next round of burgers
-Make a thumb print in the middle of you patty. This helps it to cook evenly and not puff up in the middle
-It is a myth that you cannot turn your meat more than once. To avoid charring turn that burger as many times as needed
Oh and last but not least Rocky has an epic Burger recipe for us
2 lbs. ground beef
2 tablespoons Stubb’s Beef Marinade
2 tablespoons Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub
7 oz. can of nacho sliced jalapenos
3/4 cup shredded cheese
3/4 cup Stubb’s Original or Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce
6 hamburger buns
Your favorite hamburger toppings
In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, Beef Marinade, and Bar-B-Q Spice Rub together with your hands.
Use about 1/3 cup of meat and press it into a thin patty with your hands. Top the patty with one tablespoon sliced jalapenos and two tablespoons shredded cheese , leaving at least a ¼” rim around the edge. You can adjust toppings according to your taste.
Press out another thin patty. Place the second patty on top of the first patty and use your fingers to seal the two patties together well. Repeat another five times to make a total of six burgers.
Grill burgers over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side, flipping once during cooking. Baste with Bar-B-Q sauce during last 3 minutes of cooking.
Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings.
