Chorizo Burger

Recipe from: BurgerBelly
Servings: 4 burgers

An extremely flavorful Spanish style burger made from beef and Spanish chorizo sausage, topped with caramelized onions and smoky red pepper ranch sauce and shavings of Manchego cheese served in sweet brioche buns.

1 pound ground sirloin
1 pound chorizo sausage
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 roasted red pepper, quartered
1 cup Ranch dressing
1 pinch powdered saffron
1 teaspoon Spanish paprika
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 medium onion, sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
4 soft egg buns or brioche
1 tablespoon softened butter
4 ounces manchego cheese, grated

In a large bowl, mix together the ground sirloin and chorizo using your hands. Set aside to let the flavors blend. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add one chopped onion, and sauté until tender. Transfer the onion to a blender, and add the red pepper, Ranch dressing, saffron, and paprika. Pulse until fairly smooth. Refrigerate until needed. Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the remaining onions, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for about 15 minutes until the onions are golden brown. Set aside. Preheat the grill for high heat. Form the meat into four patties, slightly larger than the buns. Place burgers on the grill, and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Split buns in half, and spread butter on the inside. Place on the grill to toast briefly. Place burgers onto buns, and top with caramelized onion and the roasted pepper ranch sauce. Sprinkle with a few shavings of manchego cheese, and place the top of the bun on top.
