PhillyBite Tabasco CheeseburgerPhiladelphia, PA - Upside Down Tabasco Butter Cheeseburger - Created by Sterling “Big Poppa” Ball, Makes 4 Servings


1 tbs TABASCO® Original Red Sauce
1.5-2 lbs 80/20 ground beef (enough to make 4, 1/3lb patties)
1-2 tbl Big Poppa's Double Secret Steak Rub (to season patties)
1.5 sticks butter (around 3/4 cup)
4 brioche burger buns (or bun of your choosing)
4 slices American cheese
1-2 tbl Mayo
4-6 leaves Romaine lettuce, torn into smaller pieces
1-2 Tomato, sliced

Burger Add-ons:

6-8 slices Bacon
4 slices Pickles (sandwich style, cut into halves)


  1. Preheat grill to 350F
  2. Form burger meat into 1/3lb patties, into a concave shape.
  3. Season one side of the patties with the Double Secret Steak Rub
  4. Let the seasoning "melt" into the patties for about 20min - use this time to melt butter, prep your toppings/anything else you'd like to have on your burger
  5. Melt butter in a microwave-safe cup, add TABASCO® Sauce to melted butter, stir
  6. Toast Buns (tops and bottoms) on the grill, watch carefully as buns can burn quickly
  7. Baste both sides of buns generously with TABASCO® butter
  8. Set buns aside/cover to keep warm
  9. Set burger patties on the grill - watch patties to see if any are cooking faster than others/adjust heat accordingly (higher or lower)
  10. After 5 minutes, flip patties, and check the internal temperature to see how far off you are from 145-150F
  11. About 5 min later, flip again, and add slices of American cheese to quickly melt onto the patty
  12. Check internal temp, and pull off the grill at 145-150F, set aside
  13. Assemble the burger bottom to top: Bottom bun, mayo on the bottom bun, lettuce, tomato, pickles, then place patty cheese side DOWN (or, upside down)
  14. Baste burger patty with TABASCO® butter, continue assembly on top of the patty with bacon, grilled onions, then top bun

Serve and enjoy!
