Pastrami Burger RecipeIngredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 8 ounces pastrami, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 sesame-seed hamburger buns, split, buttered and toasted
  • Fry Sauce, recipe follows
  • Potato chips, for serving

Fry Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot dog relish

Directions

  1. Loosely shape the beef into 4 equal patties about 1/2-inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. Sprinkle each side of the patties generously with salt and pepper. Create a small well in the center of each patty, using your thumb, to help your burger cook evenly.
  2. Heat a griddle pan over high heat. Add the pastrami and cook until browned and crisp on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Next, add the burger patties and cook until browned on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Top each burger with 2 slices of the cheese and continue cooking until the cheese is melted.
  4. Slather 1 tablespoon Utah Fry Sauce on each side of the buns. Add the beef patties and top with pastrami and a pile of potato chips. Finish with the top bun and serve with additional chips and sauce on the side.
  5. Mix together the mayonnaise, ketchup, sugar, vinegar and relish in a small bowl. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use. Yield: 3/4 cup.
