Steak Burgers with Blue Cheese


When you can`t choose between a steak or a great hamburger choose this! This is a perfect combination of beef with blue cheese and horseradish. I have purchased 2 steaks and ground them fresh to create 4 perfect patties. I used 350 grams of sirloin steak and the same of a rib eye. You do need some fat so you can create a juicy burger. I have sauteed some gorgeous Chanterelles mushrooms to top but, you add the toppings of your dreams too make yours perfect!

You will need:

  • 350 grams of sirloin steak
  • 350 grams of rib eye or something with some fat on it.
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated horseradish
  • 3 oz of Roquefort or Gorgonzola or your favourite Blue Cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian dry seasoning
  • 1 tbsp balsamic glaze
  • lots of salt and pepper - only used when on the grill
  • Chanterelles are sliced & cooked in Olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • more blue crumbles for the top
  • Dijon mustard & your favourite toppings
  • nice soft buns


Step 1: start with some good quality meat and it should be cold to grind.


Step 2: slice the cold meat and keep the fat. Grate horseradish, chop garlic, crumble some blue cheese.


Step 3: I have a meat grinding attachment on my kitchenaid stand mixer or you can use a hand crank model. I used the largest hole attachment. 


Step 4: add your filling and mix gently with your hands. Then grind once more.


Step 5: form into 4 equal patties being gentle not to over work the meat which will cause a tough burger. Let the meat come to room temperature before grilling or pan searing which ever you prefer.


Step 6: cook maybe a few minutes on each side and top as you like.
