Muenster Burgers with Sriracha Special Sauce

Pro tip: Make extra special sauce. It's amazing on sandwiches, chicken tenders, onion rings, and more.

Ingredients

Sriracha Special Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

  • 3 tbsp. dill pickle relish

  • 3 tbsp. ketchup

  • 2 tbsp. sriracha

  • 2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce

Burgers

  • 2 lb. ground sirloin

  • Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tsp. (about 1/3 palmful) caraway seed

  • 1 tsp. (about 1/3 palmful) cumin seeds or ground cumin

  • Canola or other neutral-flavored oil, for drizzling

  • 8 slices Muenster cheese

  • 4 burger rolls (I like Big Marty's or onion kaiser rolls)

  • Shaved or chopped white onion, sliced dill or bread-and-butter pickles, leaf lettuce, and thinly sliced beefsteak tomatoes, for topping

Preparation

  • Step 1

    Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high to high. 

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, stir all of the sauce ingredients. 

  • Step 3

    Place the beef in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Mix in the Worcestershire, caraway, and cumin. Form into 4 patties (thinner in centers for even cooking). 

  • Step 4

    Drizzle the patties with oil. Add to the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, about 7 minutes. Top each patty with 2 slices of cheese, then cover the pan until the cheese melts, about 1 minute. 

  • Step 5

    Build the burgers with the bun bottoms, onion, pickles, patties, lettuce, tomato, special sauce, and bun tops.
