Brisket burgers with cheddar, slaw and comeback sauce


The comeback sauce is a chilli mayonnaise from Mississippi that's used as a dipping sauce and salad dressing; here we've dressed our slaw with it for a nice hint of heat. We've minced brisket for these burgers - the good fat content produces a rich patty. If you'd prefer a lighter burger, use minced chuck.

You'll need

600 gm beef brisket, coarsely minced 2 tsp olive oil 150 gm cheddar slices, or other melting cheese 600 gm cabbage, finely sliced on a mandolin 1 carrot, cut into julienne 4 soft burger buns, halved To serve: pickles and potato chips   Comeback sauce 120 gm mayonnaise 50 gm Sriracha sauce 1 tbsp tomato sauce ½ small onion, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C and heat a baking tray. Pat beef into four 2cm-thick patties that are slightly larger than your buns. Heat a non-stick ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil and patties and cook, turning occasionally, until browned (8-9 minutes for medium-rare to medium). Top with cheddar, transfer to heated tray and place in the oven until cheddar melts and burgers are cooked to your liking (a further 1-2 minutes for medium).
  • 02
  • For comeback sauce, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine, then season to taste.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, toast buns, cut side down only in the same pan you cooked burgers in over high heat (2-3 minutes).
  • 04
  • Combine cabbage and carrot in a bowl with 1-2 tbsp comeback sauce. Spread bun bases with extra sauce, top with cheeseburger, slaw and pickles, sandwich with bun tops and serve hot with potato chips.
