  • 4 Persian or small cucumbers, peeled with a vegetable peeler into ribbons
  • 4 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1½ pound ground beef
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 onion rolls, split
  • 4 tablespoon No-Cook BBQ Sauce
  • 4 slices red onion


  1. Prepare the quick pickles. In a small bowl,combine cucumbers, vinegar, salt, and hot sauce. Let marinate for 10 to 20 minutes and drain well before using.
  2. Meanwhile, divide ground beef into 4 portions and form into ½-inch thick patties. Season both sides lightly with pepper.
  3. Cook burgers on a preheated grill  for 8 minutes per side for medium rare or about 12 minutes per side for medium or longer depending on desired doneness.
  4. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Place each burger on an onion roll with 1 tablespoon No-Cook BBQ Sauce, 1 red onion slice, and ¼ cup quick pickles.

TIP: When making burgers, remove the ground meat from the fridge about 20 minutes before forming into patties. Resist the urge to over handle while trying to form perfect-looking burgers. Over handling will cause the meat to toughen.
