An impressive visual match to traditional ground beef, the flavor of this plant-based burger meat is so on point that jaws will drop ‘round the table when you proclaim that it’s not actually meat! You may be familiar with the Impossible™ Burger from your favorite restaurant, but this tasty plant-based ground beef is making its way to the grocery store and Heinen’s happens to be one of the only grocers in our region to carry it!

Servings:
6 Burgers

Ingredients

  • 2 12 oz. packages Impossible™ Ground Beef
  • 2 Tbsp. Two Brother’s BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sriracha (add an additional Tbsp. if you like it hot)
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp. pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • Mayonnaise
  • Butter lettuce
  • Brioche buns
  • Fresh pineapple, sliced thick
  • Red onion, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the Impossible™ ground beef, BBQ sauce, sriracha, pineapple juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  2. With your hands, grab approximately 3/4 cup of meat and roll into a large ball. Place onto a baking sheet.
  3. Once you have rolled 6 balls, use the bottom of a plate to evenly push down onto each ball, creating a thick hamburger patty.
  4. On an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan, cook the burger patties for 4 minutes on each side over medium-high heat.
  5. Remove from heat and on the same pan, add the pineapple slices to warm through. Remove from heat once grill marks show on both sides, 2-3 minutes.
  6. Toast brioche buns, and spread mayonnaise on the bottom bun.
  7. Layer on butter lettuce followed by the hamburger patty.
  8. Add the pineapple and red onion on top.
  9. If you like extra spice, feel free to drizzle a bit of sriracha on top.
  10. Finish with more BBQ sauce and close the burger with the top brioche bun.
