Wine Spots Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


Wine Spots Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon makes an excellent wine and food pairing for this recipe.

Makes 12-16 sliders

The two keys to juicy burgers is: 1) don't over handle the meat, and 2) select a good cut with fat from a reliable butcher.

2 lbs ground chuck
4 tbsp olive oil – divided in half
Salt and pepper
12 – 16 favorite dinner size rolls

Prepare grill and coals.

Carefully shape the meat into 12 – 16 patties, making them slightly larger than the width of your rolls. Brush both sides of each patty with olive oil. Season them with salt and pepper.

Cook over a flame of medium height for 2-3 minutes each side for medium-rare or until done to your preference.

Brush inside of buns with olive oil, add toppings inside the buns and heat lightly over the grill. Put a burger into each roll and serve immediately.

Topping suggestions:
• Harder/dryer cheeses like Sharp Cheddar, Aged Gouda, Pecorino Toscano, Dry Jack, Softened Goat
• Grilled sweet onion slices
• Thinly sliced caramelized shallots
• Sautéed mushrooms
• Fresh Arugula leaves
