My good friend Frank at We Got Burgers was kind enough to send some burgers up for the recent BBQ Brethren Bash. I've reviewed a couple different flavors in the past and was surprised to see a couple new flavors in those he sent up. So, I kept a package or two for myself.
On the day after the Bash we needed to eat but wanted something lighter so I came up with a little different take on eating one of Franks burger patties. I took the Teriyaki/Pineapple pattie and grilled them up on the Weber kettle. I then sliced the patties like I would a steak, and since the beef used in the patties is first rate it wasn’t that far off, and served them with some rice and glazed carrots.
The carrots were cut into long slices and par-boiled for 5 minutes. They were then dunked in ice water to stop the cooking. Brush one side of the carrots with BBQ Grail Asian Glaze and grill. Glaze the tops and turn over.
Plate your rice, slice your burger patties and drizzle the remaining glaze over the whole thing.
The glaze complimented the seasoning and pineapple in the burger patties and created an overall nice light, yet flavorful dish. Perfect for a Sunday night after coming out of a BBQ’d Meat Induced Coma from the day before.
