- 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
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.
