The Bobby Burger is a one-of-a-kind burger that my family devours. The flavors that come together in this burger are out of this world. I cooked this beauty on The Sportsman Channel and have gotten many requests to post the recipe.
We named this burger Bobby Burger because my husband’s Uncle Bobby always makes this for us when we visit. It may be the only thing he knows how to make. If it is the only recipe he knows, it’s a good one!!
Of course you can use lean beef for this recipe but venison is my choice for this burger. It doesn’t have a lot of fat so the meat doesn’t shrink. It stays the same size that you cut it. It’s almost like a Sloppy Joe, but better.
The brown sugar balances the sourness of the vinegar and saltiness of the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Another benefit to the brown sugar is it helps caramelize the meat.
I like to pile my sandwich high with meat and eat it with a fork. Don’t forget the mustard — it’ll remind you of the county fair! I just love the fair; Well, mostly the food at the fair! I get to have it once a year and I’m not about to miss it.
