Zinfully Delicious Burger
This is a receipe that I created specifically for a Zinfandel wine tasting party that we had at our home in Prescott. The burgers were a big hit.
1 ounce EVOO - to coat the grill 1 - 14.5 ounce can black beans 1 cup Zinfandel wine â€“ a good wine that you would like to drink (I prefer Pezzi King or Wilson) Â½ cup sun-dried tomato Â½ pound brie â€“ soft 6 Chiabatta buns 1 pound each chuck and sirloin steak - ground 2 teaspoons garlic salt 1 teaspoon ground pepper â€“ course 2 teaspoon paprika Â¼ pound butter Â½ cup bread crumbs 1 extra-large red onion 1 large head Radicchio Â½ cup Best Foods mayonnaise
preparation time â€“ Â½ hour cooking time â€“ minutes  in a small pot, cook the beans and Zinfandel until the liquid is reduced to a thick sauce â€“ 10 to 15 minutes  melt the butter in a small pot â€“ 1 minute  mix the two ground beef varieties with the garlic salt and pepper  press the beef into 12 thin patties â€“ it takes two patties to make up one burger  brush the â€œoutsideâ€Â (one side only) of each patty with butter  lightly coat the â€œoutsideâ€Â with bread crumbs and paprika  press the crumbs and paprika gently into the beef  cut the sun-dried tomato into small strips  remove the crust from the brie  mix the sun-dried tomato and brie together  gently spread the brie/sun-dried tomato mixture onto the â€œinsideâ€Â of 6 patties (bread crumbs & paprika to the outside)  top each of the above patties with the remaining 6 patties (bread crumbs & paprika to the outside) and work the edges together to seal in the mixture  cut the red onion to obtain 6 large slices  separate the Radicchio leaves from the head  cut the buns in half  grill the buns to a light brown â€“ Â½ to 1 minute  grill the burger to medium rare â€“ 2 to 3 minutes per side  combine the ingredients in the following orderâ€¦ bottom bun â€“ beef patty â€“ tablespoon of bean mixture â€“ red onion ring â€“ several leaves of Radicchio â€“ mayonnaise to taste â€“ top bun  serve immediately
