Firebirds is an AMAZING restaurant here in Memphis and in Collierville. Today I thought I'd share a couple of their recipes, which comes straight from their restaurant blog!
Makes 2 Quarts
Worchester Sauce – 5 Cups
Cider Vinegar — 5 Cups
Ketchup – 5 Cups
Brewed Coffee – 5 Cups
Brown Sugar - 1 2-LB Bag Light Brown Sugar Plus 1/4 Cup
Onion Powder – 1 TBSP
Salt – 1 TBSP
Chile Powder – 2 TBSP
Place all the ingredients it a pot or dutch oven.
Bring to a simmer.
Reduce to medium low.
Continue to cook on low heat until the consistency coats the back of a spoon.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Did you know that May is National Burger Month? If you want a tasty, mouth watering, juicy, full flavored burger, let the wood fire of Firebirds make all your burger dreams come true. Our hand made burgers are well seasoned and cooked over the open flame, giving them a flavor like no other. One bite and we got you! Come in and try our Poblano Burger or give it a go at home. The mild heat of the poblano pepper adds a nice kick without too much spice. For those who like their food on fire (in terms of spiciness), try experimenting with ancho chile or chipotle peppers. Have some water on hand and a napkin to wipe those eyes!
80 /20 Ground Chuck - 2 lbs
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Roasted Poblano Peppers – 4
Goat Cheese Crumbles – 8 TBSP
Pepper Jack Cheese – 4 Slices
Onion Straws – 1 Large Can
Hamburger Buns – 4
Butter – For Toasting
Shaved Lettuce – 2 Cups
1 Large Ripe Tomato – Cut into Slices
Assemble four 8 oz burger patties with the ground chuck.
Season liberally on both sides with Montreal Steak Seasoning or seasoning of your choice.
Fire up your grill and start roasting the poblanos until they have a nice char. Remove from the grill and let rest until able to handle. Peel away outside charred skin and discard. Slice the peppers.
Start grilling your burgers until just under the desired temperature.
Top burgers with sliced poblanos, goat cheese and pepper jack cheese (divide evenly among burgers) and continue grilling until cheese melts thorougly.
Remove burgers from grill and let rest.
Butter both sides of hamburger buns and toast on grill until golden brown.
Remove buns and place 1/4 of onion straws on bun bottom and top with grilled burger.
On bun top, layer shredded lettuce and tomato.
Put it all together, wrap your hands around it and hold on! This may be the best burger you ever had!
