My New Burgers (Replacing My Deerburgers)



No Deerburgers this year, so I had to come up with a new mix to replace them.
The Deerburgers I've been making for years were 50% Venison, 25% Pork, and 25% Beef.

The best I found through my experimenting is 75% Beef and 25% Pork. Much better than straight Beef, and almost as good as My Deerburger Mix.
So Mrs Bear turned 2 pounds of My new Mix into 6 Patties of 1/3 lb each, after mixing 3 TBS of Worcestershire sauce in it.

So I oiled the Ninja Grill a bit & set it on HI for 20 minutes, and closed it up for the Preheat.
When the “ADD FOOD” appeared, I put 6 nice big Burgers on the Grill for 5 minutes.
Then I flipped the Burgers & cooked them on the second side for another 5 minutes, including about 30 seconds to melt the Cheese on one.
Then I added a Mix of Mustard & Ketchup to my First Roll & the Burger, and plated it with a bunch of leftover Scallops.

The second night, I coated both sides of a Roll with Kraft Sandwich Spread, dropped a Burger in, with melted Cheese, and added 3 Deviled Eggs & some Pickle Chips.

Then the Third Night, I had one more Cheeseburger with Jeff’s Awesome BBQ Sauce, with 2 Deviled Eggs & some Pickled Red Beet Slices.

These were some Great Burgers, with both the New Mix & the way this New Toy (Ninja Grill) made them for Me.

That’s it for now,


Bear

As usual you stuff look great Bear but man I am jonesing for deviled eggs!!! Waiting for the missus to make a batch from the easter eggs. For a long time I did like you and hit them hard with black and a little cayenne pepper but no longer do. I now use new mexican red (hatch) chile powder. Love that stuff!

Those burgers look great John! I used to do a 50/50 mix of ground hot breakfast sausage and ground beef. Was pretty tasty if you are in that mood for that type of burger. Right now I grind 50/50 brisket and chuck. Seems to be the fan favorite around these parts. None the less yours look great man and I would be happy to sit down to a couple any day!

It has never crossed my mind to make burgers with a beef/pork mix, so now I'm going to have to try this.

Looking good, John. Except for the one with sandwich spread--I really hate that stuff.
When I do a mix, I use the same 75/25 as yours. I've found that makes a really good burger.
And, as for the deviled eggs, you're lucky I wasn't around. You might have got trampled. LOL.

Oh, Bear.... That plate looks awesome! Just buns alone, covered with ketchup and mustard looks so appetizing to me... I would eat burgers every day (with an exception when I eat stakes, ribs, etc. :emoji_wink:) but amount of carbs doesn't allow me that....

Great looking burgers Bear, 3 days in a row. That's how I like to eat what i cook until its gone. Mona wants to move on to something else after maybe pushing it for 2 meals ( except Ham or Turkey dinners )
I'm not much on shell fish , but in my house for Wife no such thing as leftover scallops or lobster ...ha ha

Just in time for this weekend! I am going to smoke our first burgers, then reverse sear them on the grill. Mrs. Smoke makes the patties from an old recipe that I remember as a kid. She still uses the old wooden patti press. Yours look great!

Those Burgers look excellent, John. Another great meal from that Ninja! All 3 meals look delicious, but I'm partial to the first one with the Scallops. Great work.

Cool, I see you use a 60/40 mix, and mine is 75/25. I'm going to have to try your 60/40, because as good as mine are, I might like it leaning a little more towards Sausage.
And Thanks for the Like.
