It’s the most wonderful time of the year — restaurant weeks! Austin, Houston and San Antonio restaurants will be serving prix fixe menus at special prices to benefit various organizations.
We’re heating things up this weekend with one of the Top 50 barbecue joints in Texas. Then, it’s time for hot cheesy chile rellenos from one of the Alamo City’s BEST spots for Mexican food.
Stack ‘em high, mix up a special sauce and top with extra-thick griddled bacon. Here, 7 epic burger recipes to try out this summer.
“Is this an American take on a Vietnamese classic or a Vietnamese take on an American classic? Either way, these spicy burgers topped with Tabasco-spiked mayonnaise, slivers of crunchy pickled carrots and sprigs of cilantro are wonderful. “
“It might sound radical, but adding water to the pan makes total sense: The steam will help cook the burger through, while preserving moisture at the same time.”
“These Smoky Maple & Sage Breakfast Pork Burgers are made from juicy ground pork that is coated in a sweet and smoky maple rub using McCormick Grill Mate’s Smokehouse Maple seasoning. Then the burger is built on a grilled waffle with cheese, bacon, and a runny yolk fried egg. What more could I want in a camp breakfast?!”
“These are for all the vegetarians who still want to have fun and throw a delicious summer BBQ. Now – they are sort of healthy, but then I just had to add the cheese sauce. Oh the cheese sauce. This cheese sauce is worth the splurge.”
The lamb burgers sit on a bed of sweet and spicy caramelized red onions and jalapeños and the bun is slathered with a bright, zingy herb sauce that can be made with either Greek yogurt or mayonnaise (or my favorite, a combination of both).
Chef Wesley Genovart makes this over-the-top, Shake Shack–inspired burger with two thin stacked patties, thick-cut bacon, kimchi and a spicy homemade sauce.
Grill like a pro this 4th of July with the help of these easy, must-know grilling basics.
When it comes to summer desserts, I’m always looking for something refreshing, effortless and appears like I’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all day (when it really came together in minutes). An even bigger incentive? Not turning on my oven.
