  • 2 pounds ground beef 80/20 – fat ratio

  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground oregano

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup bourbon

  1. In a large skillet, melt the 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. 
  2. Add the 1/4 cup bourbon, onions, sugar, salt and pepper.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are soft and lightly browned, at least 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, add the ground beef to a large bowl with the 3 tablespoons bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Lightly mix with your hands and form into six patties.
