How to make the texan bbq burger


This recipe is our guide to creating an authentic Texan BBQ Burger. Everything from the Brioche Buns, right through to the BBQ Sauce, every component has a vital roll to perfecting this show-stopping burger. Below is all you need to create, with an easy step-by-step guide to stacking the build of your burger and creating the most delicious Texan Style BBQ Burger.


  1. Heat a heavy based non-stick frying pan over medium-heat. Split and toast the brioche buns until nice and golden, about 1 to 2 minutes, being careful, as they will burn quickly. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Sear the tomatoes in the same pan over a very high heat for 1-2 minutes until just starting to burn, remove and keep warm.
  3. For the patties place a thumbprint in the centre of each patty to help the cook evenly. Season both sides of each patty with sea salt and cracked black pepper & gently rub a little oil or fat onto both sides.
  4. Bring the frying pan to full heat then fry the patties, 4 minutes per side, for medium-cooked burgers (cook longer if you prefer your burgers well done). In the last minute of cooking add the butter & baste over the burgers, this will make them extra rich & juicy.
