There is something about having a burger piled high with slaw that is entirely Magical. These will not disappoint.

This Carolina Burger is oozing with Mustard BBQ sauce and just waiting for you to take that first bite!

Oh smack. This Carolina Burger is long overdue. It’s halfway through summer and I haven’t even burned through my second tank of propane. What gives? I thought it would be burger-palooza up in here by now and I would be so sick of shopping for interesting buns to photograph that I would be begging for cold disgusting weather to keep me trapped indoors and polishing my skills with the old George Foreman.

Not the case. We’re going to change that. This is Girl freakin Carnivore. We need at least one slide that belt buckle burst the button on the pants burger a month. At least.

Sometimes, we might even have two.

Ingredients  

Mustard Barbecue Sauce

  • Mustard Barbecue Sauce Wont lie, tried this, threw it away and went for a bottled version of a mustard base sauce I had in the pantry
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 teas kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teas fresh ground black pepper

Green onion Slaw

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped green onions white and green parts
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 serrano chiles stemmed and seeded
  • 2 tbs mayo
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • 1/2 head purple cabbage shredded
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh snipped cilantro

Burgers

  • 1 1/2 lbs 80% ground chuck
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns split and toasted

Instructions 

  • To make the sauce: Whisk together the mustard sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Bring to room temp before using.
  • To make the slaw: Pulse the green onions, vinegar, water, chiles, mayo, and oil in a food processor or blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage and red onion with dressing. Fold in the cilantro. Season with salt and pepper as needed (I always wait at least 1 hour after tossing the cabbage to add additional seasoning). Let come to room temp for 15 minutes before using.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Clean and prep grill grate.
  • Divide the beef into 4 equal portions. Press into patties and using your thumb, make an indention in the center of each. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Cook burgers, flipping once 7-10 minutes, basting with the mustard sauce during the last minute of cooking.
  • Serve burgers on toasted rolls with additional sauce and a pile of slaw.

  1. Summer’s halfway done?? Dudette goes back to school in two weeks. Summer is truly over for us. I’d love to know what makes this a Carolina burger, having lived here for almost 20 years and never seeing anything like it before. The fact that there’s some kind of slaw on meat? Curious. It does look fantastic though.

    1. I was wondering the same thing myself. I was thinking maybe it was the mustard base sauce? The following recipe is a Dallas burger and now I want to go look and see what makes it ‘Dallas’… Maybe he just knew a pretty girl named Caroline… and needed a burger title…
