Florentine Habanero Jack Sirloin Burger with Pine Nuts on Grilled Pretzel Roll

Trying to make a juicy, unique burger with good flavor and pizazz.

Ingredients 

Chipotle Aioli
1 cup Hellman’s Mayonnaise
2 whole chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce (canned) chopped
1 teaspoon fresh chives, finely chopped
2 teaspoon fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Sirloin Patties
1 onion roll, diced
1/2 cup Beef stock (kitchen basics)
1/2 cup Sutter Home Merlot
1 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
2 X-Large Grade AA Egg
1 ½ pounds Ground Sirloin Beef (80/20)
1/2 pound Ground Pork
8 ounces Habanero Jack Cheese, diced
1 ½ cup Fresh spinach, trimmed, washed, and julienne
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon Pesto Sauce, prepared jar or fresh from specialty store
2 tablespoon Pine nuts
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, freshly ground

Assembly
12 slices Heirloom tomatoes
6 leaves, Bibb lettuce
Vegetable for brushing grill rack
6 Pretzel Roll, sliced
3 tablespoons butter (to spread on sliced rolls)

Instructions 

Directions:
To make the Chipotle Aioli, combine all chipotle aioli ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use. Can be stored in refrigerator for 7 days.

To make patties, combine onion roll, beef stock and wine in a large bowl, mix to soften roll, then add remaining patty ingredients. Do not over mix, as this will make your meat tough. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and shape into patties. Set aside in refrigerator until grill is ready.

Preheat gas grill to medium-high heat, rub grates with vegetable oil to prevent sticking. When grill is ready, place patties on grate, cook on medium-high heat, 3-5 minutes per side, (depending on preference). Flip once and let cook another 3-5 minutes. Do not press on the burger, this will release juices.

Spread sliced pretzel rolls with butter and grill for approximately 1 minute or until lightly golden brown.

Spread 1 ½ tablespoon chipotle aioli on top and bottom of each bun, set aside. To assemble burger, place 1 sirloin patty on roll bottom and top with 1 leaf of Bibb lettuce, 2 slices of tomato and cover with top of pretzel roll.
