Chuck’s Sloppy Burger
My wife bought a can of Sloppy Joe sauce and my creative mind thought of this recipe. I created, wrote, and cooked this recipe. It was a success everyone loved it.
Chuckâ€™ Sloppy Sauce and Patties
1/2 cup Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon
1/4 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive oil, plus some for preparing the grill grates
1/4 cup green Bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 12 pounds fresh 80/20 ground Chuck Essex
Reynolds Parchment Paper
6 slices of California Sharp Cheddar cheese
The Sloppy Finishers
6 Kingâ€™s Hawaiian Savory Butter rolls
12 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup mayo
6 lettuce leafs, burger size
18-24 Dill pickle slices
6 NatureSweet Cherub Tomatoes, sliced, lightly salt and peppered
1 California Avocado, seeded, peeled, and sliced thinly
Pour the Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon and Colivata Extra Virgin Olive oil in a large bowl. Add the peppers, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, chili powder, salt, pepper, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and whisk together. Skim off 1/4 cup of the Chuckâ€™s Sloppy sauce and set aside until needed. Add the ground Chuck with the remaining sauce. Using a large spoon gently blend together. Set aside, let the meat marinade, and reach room temperature.
Prepare the grill grates with the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive oil and preheat to medium-high.
Form 6 patties using the large spoon, Reynolds Parchment Paper, and a plate to flatten. Add them to the grill for 5-7 minutes. Open the Kingâ€™s Hawaiian rolls and spread the butter on the insides. Blend the reserved Chuckâ€™s Sloppy sauce and with the mayo in a medium size bowl. Turn the patties, add a slice of the California Sharp Cheddar cheese and grill another 3-4 minutes. Place the Kingâ€™s Hawaiian rolls buttered side down on the grill to toast to a light golden brown. Grill another 2-3 minutes and remove all to rest for a few minutes. Spread the Chuckâ€™s Sloppy Mayo on the roll insides, add a cheeseburger patty to the roll bottoms, place a lettuce leaf on each, add 3-4 pickle slices next, the NatureSweet tomatoes, and the Avocado slices. Crown with the roll top, serve, and enjoy.
Prep Time: 45 minutes. Grill Time: 10-14 minutes.
