Buffalo Burger with Oka Cheese
- serves 6
2 ¼ lb(s) ground buffalo meat
¼ cup red onion diced
¼ cup sun dried cranberries chopped
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
Salt to taste
Olive oil for brushing
6 slices Oka cheese
6 hamburger buns
1 cup Store bought apple cranberry chutney
Optional: garnish with red onion slices, lettuce and mayonnaise
1. In a medium sized bowl mix together ground meat, onion, cranberries, salt and pepper. Knead until well combined. Form into 6 equal patties being careful to work with just the meat until it forms. Brush each side lightly with olive oil. Preheat grill to medium high (375F) (190C). Oil the grill to prevent sticking.
2. Place burgers on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare. Buffalo burgers should be served medium rare, as the lean meat doesn’t take well to over cooking. Flip burgers. In the last minute of cooking, top with cheese and close the lid of the barbeque. Remove burgers from grill when cheese has melted. Serve with store bought apple cranberry chutney, and garnish with red onion, lettuce and mayonnaise if desired.
