  • 8 oz ground sirloin
  • 8 oz ground short rib
  • 8 oz ground brisket
  • 3 oz ground bacon
  • Kosher salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 4 brioche buns
  • Pulled pork butt with C-Town BBQ Sauce
  • Cole slaw
  • Mayo
  • For the cole slaw:
  • 1 head savoy cabbage, shredded
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • 5 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pickle juice
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • Cooking Directions

    Build a medium-hot fire in your grill or preheat a stovetop grill pan.

    Combine all the meats together and form into 4 patties (about 3 1/2 inches in diameter each). Season the patties with salt and cracked black pepper, to taste. Make a thumbprint in the middle of the burger to keep from shrinking while cooking.

    Brush the outside of the patty with a little olive oil. Put the burgers on the grill or in the grill pan and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and grill for 3 minutes for medium- rare. Remove them to a plate.

    Put a small spread of mayonnaise on each bun and toast lightly on the grill.

    Build the burgers by sandwiching them between the brioche buns along with a spoonful of slaw and pulled pork butt BBQ.

    To make coleslaw:

    In a mixing bowl add chopped herbs to the shredded cabbage. Add the remaining ingredient and toss to combine. Add more salt if necessary.
