Despite what you might think, this is a classic hamburger. Legend has it that this burger was invented in Utah. What could be better than a juicy burger, topped with fresh warm slices of pastrami, Swiss cheese, and a delicious creamy sauce. If you haven't tried a pastrami burger, it's time to do so.
For the Pastrami Burger:
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound pastrami, sliced
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 clove garlic, minced, optional
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 large hamburger buns
1 cup shredded lettuce
For Russian Dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
In large bowl, combine ground beef, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
Form into 4 equal-sized patties and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. This will make it easier to transfer to the grill.
When the grill is heated, place patties on grill grates. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Place 1/4 of the pastrami on each patty and top with Swiss cheese. Cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until patties are cooked through (165 F) and cheese has melted through. Promptly remove from grill.
Quickly whip up the Russian dressing. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, ketchup, horseradish, and onion powder.
To serve, add shredded lettuce to one half of hamburger bun, top with finished patty, and add a generous dollop of Russian dressing.
- Double or triple the recipe if you intend to serve a larger group.
- Russian dressing can be made a day in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. The mixture will stay good for up to three days after preparation.
