Ingredients:

  • 12 slices meaty bacon
  • 1 1/2 pounds 80% lean ground beef
  • Kosher salt and coarse black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated onion and its juice
  • A drizzle olive or vegetable oil
  • 8 slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 4 burger rolls, split

Lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, pickled jalapeños, to serve Sweet chili and/or hot pepper potato chips

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange bacon on a broiler pan or rack set onto a baking sheet and bake until crisp.  

Preheat a cast-iron skillet.  

In a mixing bowl, combine beef with salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire, soy and grated onion. Form 4 patties that are thinner at the center and thicker at the edges for even cooking.  

Add a drizzle of oil to the hot skillet and add burgers. Cook patties 8 minutes total, turning occasionally, melting 2 slices of cheese on each burger.  

Combine sriracha and ketchup in small bowl.  

Place 3 slices of bacon, some lettuce, a couple slices of tomato and onion on the buns and top with cheeseburgers and pickled jalapeños. Slather bun tops with sriracha ketchup, set in place and serve.
