Sloppy Joe Carolina-Style Burgers

Hands-on time 15 mins
Total time 25 mins
Yield Makes 4 burgers
Eat these over-the-top burgers with a knife and fork, or set out a pile of napkins. Add fresh crisp texture and flavor by mounding slaw atop the burgers. Serve extra slaw on the side, or save it for another day.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 (16-oz.) package 3-color deli coleslaw mix
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1 (16-oz.) can chili, warmed

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in a large bowl. Add coleslaw mix; toss to coat. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

  2. Combine ground sirloin, steak sauce, and remaining 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Gently shape mixture into 4 (4-inch) patties.

  3. Grill patties, covered with grill lid, 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink in center. Serve on hamburger buns, and top burgers with chili and coleslaw mixture.
