The other day I showed you in a few simple pictures how easy grinding your own beef could be. I won’t drag out my pulpit and start preaching about why to grind your own meat quite yet. Instead I’m just going to lure you in with these delicious burgers I made with those perfect patties.

Broccoli Rarebit?  I can make this happen.

I wanted to create a spin on cheese slathered Welsh Rarebit to satisfy a major cheese craving but I also wanted a way to sneak some veg in. Knowing everyone loves broccoli slathered in cheese, I decided that making a slaw to top the burgers out of broccoli was a great start. Drenching everything in cheese sauce was the ultimate finish (so much for the vegetables). It was still a wee bit cold, and I am wanting to learn the art of skillet cooking a burger so I opted for that instead of good old fashioned charcoal. Smashing it all in between a toasted bun, this burger was a complete meal in itself.

Not your traditional béchamel based rarebit and not your old fashioned burger either.


  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1-2 tbsp thousand island dressing
  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1 cup stout beer
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • dash of tabasco sauce
  • Toasted buns


  • Mix broccoli slaw with as little dressing as possible to just moisten the entire two cups. It’s getting a fair share of moisture later from the cheese so don’t over do it here.
  • Mix the ground beef, salt, pepper and thyme in a bowl. Form into patties.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and swirl about the pan. 
  • Place patties in pan and cook 5 – 7 minutes, flipping once for medium- rare.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. 
  • Whisk in the flour. Slowly whisk in the beer. Add the tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. 
  • Whisk the cheese in and mix until melted through.
  • Place patties on toasted bun bottoms and top with a heaping portion of slaw and cheese sauce. Top with remaining bun halves.

  1. Wow, oh wow. Those look amazing. Personally, I believe that if a healthy vegetables touches any cheese or meat, it negates the bad fat and calories. Broccoli slaw counts.
