2 cloves garlic
2 tblsp butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup sutter homes merlot wine
2lbs ground beef
1lb ground pork
1/2 lb ground veal
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped basil

1/2-to almost 1 cup(depending on ur tastes)grated perm/regiiano cheese

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup ketchup

chabbata bread/ any italian bread will do fine

i know this recipe may have according to ur instructuons more than 16 ingredients but they are every day ingredients the component of this burger is obviously the wine and it tastes delcious if u like while on the grill u can add and brush on some merlot wine on top of burgers along with olive oil for more flavoring of wine if u like and u can also leave the arugala and tomato out and just serve with sauce and bread. this is one of my favorite burgers and i hope u wil like this too.
