A note about serious food allergies

What, you think BBQ only comes from America? The idea of cooking meat on fire predates the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. (Probably predates civilization!) Now, the red, white, and blue did contribute BBQ sauce to the barbecue tradition, sweet and smoky. Here, we combine BBQ sauce with teriyaki for a tangy twosome and top that with a Sriracha-mayo slaw that brings a slight note of heat. BBQ is universal, and flavors this good should be, too. Tip: Make potatoes easier to cut by making a large slice that leaves a flat surface. Place the flat surface on the cutting board and get to slicing!

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, cooking until patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 6-8 minutes per side.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, cooking over medium-high heat until patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into ½" wedges. Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, seasoning rub, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until browned and tender, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through. While potatoes roast, make slaw and sauce.

  2. 2

    Make the Slaw and Sauce

    Combine slaw mix, mayonnaise, 1 tsp. olive oil, and Sriracha (to taste) in a mixing bowl. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, combine teriyaki glaze and BBQ sauce. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the Burgers

    Form ground beef into two patties, 4" in diameter. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add patties to hot pan and cook until patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. Remove patties to a plate and tent with foil.
