These are messy, and juicy, and delicious. If you can only find ground beef packaged set it out on the counter for about 20 minutes to warm up just a little, then follow directions. You will find these classic burgers at any Texas roadside burger joint-the slaw is a must.

How to Make Texas Roadhouse Style Burgers

Step-by-Step

  • 1For this recipe I use my electric skillet. This way I can cook all 4 burgers at once, and they do not fall through the grill grate, and they will if you use this method.
  • 2On a plate fluff your freshly ground beef chuck.
  • 3Lightly salt and pepper your beef and fluff again-around 1/2 teaspoon each.
  • 4Divide your meat into 4 equal portions.
  • 5Carefully draw each patty together-it will look like a large meatball barely holding together.
  • 6Heat your electric skillet to 400 degrees.
  • 7Add oil and swish it around so the bottom of skillet is covered.
  • 8Carefully transfer each "meatball" to the hot skillet.
  • 9Take a spatula and place it on top of the first "meatball".
  • 10Using a CLEAN can press down hard to form your first patty.
  • 11Repeat with the other 3. These should be large rounds.
  • 12Cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip. You want a nice, brown crust. Not tan, brown.
  • 13Brush the tops of your burgers with BBQ sauce-be generous.
  • 14Cook for an additional 4 minutes.
  • 15Remove to a platter and now fry your buns.
  • 16When golden brown remove buns to plate.
  • 17Brush buns with remaining BBQ sauce.
  • 18On the bottom of the buns place a slice of cheese, then a burger patty, then your pickles, onions, tomato and top with 1/4 cup creamy slaw.
  • 19Top with bun and eat.
  • 20In order to eat these you will need to adopt the "lean" stance, regardless of whether you are standing or sitting. If you are standing lean out to take a bite, if sitting do the same. These are MESSY and JUICY and you will be wearing it if you do not "lean".
  • 21Serve with fries or onion rings.
