EASY MEAL - Making Rodeo Blue Cheese Burgers w/Grilled Onion Strings (or creating your own great Rodeo Burger)

Upon sitting down for dinner this Tuesday night; I had a slight dejvu of being at one of my favorite burger restaurants. This burger with all of its contents gave a buttery, meaty, cheesy creamy taste to satisfy anyone’s taste buds. In the pictures bellow I show myself adding eggs and spices. However; when you receive your easy meal, the burgers will already be assembled (without egg) and ready to cook. Only with ground chuck, would I suggest to use egg. This helps hold the meat together.

The burgers will be made with ground sirloin which 99% meat and 1% fat. This means not only will the burger be very lean but also very meaty. If you are looking for more of a juicy burger I would suggest getting ground chuck. Chuck is the shoulder beef loin and tends to have a higher fat content. When you cook animal fat it becomes a liquid and coats the meat making it tenderer. Most of the fat after coating the meat will drain out of the meat during your cooking. If you are wanting ground chuck (for now), there is a 10lbs minimum.

In the picture you will see caramelized onions as well as blue cheese added to this burger. However you are allowed to use any condiments and toppings you choose.  You can order your rodeo burgers - easy meal here!   For instructions on caramelizing onions, please visit the recipe corner section on caramalizing onions.

Cooking Instructions:

Heat grill to medium heat or equivalent

Grill for 5-9 minutes depending on preference of meat doneness

Bon appetite!

Hormone Free Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Turkey Pork, Open Range Chicken

The benefits of eating pasture raised, grass-fed meats are hard to deny. From the extra nutrients to the shaky ethics surrounding commercially raised animals, pasture-raised cows and free range chickens win every time. While we hear the most about steaks and beef, the same benefits can apply to any animal raised without hormones in its natural habitat. Typically pork or chicken is referred to as pasture raised, or free range instead, as these animals are natural omnivores and eat a little of everything. Our family farm produces grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range turkey and chicken. Our gourmet meats and dairy products are shipped fresh to customers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and the Chicago, Illinois area. Pastured pork, beef, chicken, and turkey is not only better for the animal, but it’s also better for the consumer too. If you’ve shopped for meats at most grocery stores, you probably saw bright red packages of similar shapes and sizes, which is different from the varying packages of beef you would find when shopping with an small, local farmer. Each animal is unique, and John Henry’s doesn’t use steroids, hormones, or fatty feeds on our farm. This produces a higher-quality cut of meat that can vary in size, shape, and color depending on what muscles were exercised more. Grass-fed beef, and pasture raised turkey, pork, and chicken also have fat that is more yellow due to healthy beta carotenes that are present. We also cut each of our meats fresh and ship it to you the same day! If you haven’t tried grass-fed beef, pastured pork, or free range turkey and chicken you don’t know what you’re missing. Save $10 on your first shipment with promo code “New10” John Henry’s ships to Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennesee, New England, Virginia, West Virginia, THe Carolinas, And more!
