Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers
Makes 3 to 4 burgers
1 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ketchup
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt & pepper
1 lb. ground buffalo
Mix all ingredients, but Buffalo together. Add Buffalo and mix thoroughly with hands. Pat into 3 or 4, 1/2″ patties. Place in refrigerator to firm up burgers. Grill over high heat (500 gas grill) for 3 minutes each side, closing grill lid during cooking time. This will produce a medium rare burger.
*Optional & my preference: Drizzle or brush burger with a touch more oil and grill for 30 seconds each side. This will put a nice char crust on the burger. This will produce a medium prepared burger.
Finish with a sprinkle of high quality finishing salt. Serve burgers on quality buns/bread or on a bed of salad greens and top or dress with desired condiments.
Grilling Tips for Burgers and Steaks:
Using grill brush or crumbled foil, insure grill burners and grates are completely clean of debris.
Preheat grill, all burners to high heat, 500*+. Lean meats cook best at high heat.
All grills are a little different so know your grill, ie: hot spots, internal temp, etc.
Before placing meat on grill, oil grill grates or use grill spray.
