Bloody Bull Burgers with Crunchy Ketchup
These Bloody Mary-inspired burgers are slider size for easy entertaining.
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 3 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish or 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, such as Gold’s
- 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (omit if using prepared horseradish)
- 2 pounds ground bison or sirloin
- 1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 3/4 cup ketchup, preferably organic
- 1/4 cup HP sauce or your favorite steak sauce
- 2 tablespoons celery ribs and leaves, very finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Tabasco
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- 12 slider-size onion rolls or brioche slider rolls
- Romaine leaves
- Beefsteak tomato slices
- Thinly sliced onion
- Pimento-stuffed olives
- Cocktail onions
In a large bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, horseradish, parsley and lemon juice, if using. Add the meat, pepper, kosher salt and celery salt. Using your hands, mix to combine. Form into 12 slider-size patties (thinner at the center for even cooking).
In a medium size bowl, mix the ketchup, HP sauce, celery and Tabasco to make the crunchy ketchup.
In a cast iron skillet, heat the EVOO over medium-high. Cook the patties, turning once, for about 8 minutes for medium-rare doneness. Divide the patties among the roll bottoms. Top with the lettuce, tomato, onion, crunchy ketchup and roll tops. Garnish the burgers with olives and onions, if using, skewered on toothpicks.
