"If you want a taste of Love & Happiness, look no further than Stubb’s Toasted Pecan Burgers. This recipe features bell peppers, onions and pecans all mixed in with some good ol’ ground chuck. "
1 pound ground chuck
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper
3 tablespoons Stubb’s® Original Bar-B-Q Sauce
2 tablespoons Stubb’s® Bar-B-Q Spice Rub
Lettuce, mayonnaise and toasted buns, for serving
Mix together the chuck, onion, pecans, bell pepper, Stubb’s® Original Bar-B-Q Sauce and Stubb’s® Bar-B-Q Spice Rub. Shape into three large or four average-sized patties. (The burgers may be mixed and shaped earlier in the day and refrigerated until ready to use.)
Prepare a grill for direct cooking. For a charcoal grill, when the coals are ashed over, rake or spread them out in the bottom of the grill so the food can cook directly over the coals. (For a gas grill, fire up the burners so the food can cook directly over the heat.)
Grill the burgers over direct medium heat, first on one side and then on the other, 7 to 10 minutes, until they reach your desired degree of doneness. (Medium burgers register an internal temperature of 160°F.) Serve with lettuce, mayonnaise and toasted buns.
