MILLION DOLLAR RIB EYE BURGER WITH SOUR CREAM HORSERADISH SAUCE SERVED ON A TOASTED GARLIC-BUTTER ROLL

I asked my husband what would be his dream burger. He immediately said use ribeye steak. I normally serve ribeyes only for special occasions, and since my husband is the most special person in my life, I decided he deserves the best. So here it is, my million dollar ribeye burger. I kept the ingredient list short so the BIG taste of the ribeyes is the star of this recipe. I also used the sour cream horseradish sauce that I use on our Christmas prime rib. My husband said, after devouring the burger, that I am the best and that's winner enough for me!

Ingredients 

Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce:
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
Garlic-butter for rolls:
8 ounces (2 sticks) sweet butter
2 tablespoons (about 4 cloves) fresh chopped garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
Patties:
2 pounds fresh ground boneless beef ribeye steaks (get your butcher to grind it for you)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Vegetable oil, for brushing the grill rack
6 Kaiser rolls, split
6 large slices fresh ripe tomato

Instructions 

Directions: Preheat the gas grill to medium-high. To make the sour cream horseradish sauce, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise and horseradish with a wire whisk in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use. To make the garlic-butter, place the butter in a heavy medium fire-proof skillet. Place at the edge of the grill rack, melt butter. Add the garlic and salt. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring, being careful not to burn garlic. Remove from grill, set aside. To make the patties, combine the ground ribeye in a large bowl with the salt and pepper, handling the ribeye as little as possible to avoid compacting it. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape into patties about 1 1/2 inches thick. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover and cook, turning once, just until done, 5 to 6 minutes each side. During the last few minutes of cooking, dip each cut side of rolls into garlic-butter, place cut side down on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly, being careful not to burn. To assemble the burgers, add a patty to each roll bottom, top with a slice of tomato. Add the sour cream horseradish sauce, dividing it equally among the burgers (use it all). Add the roll tops and serve. Makes 6 burgers Preparation time: 15 minutes Cook time: 13 to 15 minutes
