Bruleed Broiler Burger

Jazz up your typical burgers with unbelievably sweet bruleed tomatoes.

Serves 4


2 lb medium ground beef
1/4 c Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp cracked black peppercorn
1 tbsp Kosher salt
4 hamburger buns
4 c very loosely packed onion sprouts

Bruleed Broiler Beefsteak Tomatoes
2 SUNSET® beefsteak tomatoes
6 Tbsp granulated sugar

Balsamic Mayo
1/2 c mayonnaise
2 tsp Balsamic vinegar



Preheat broiler to highest setting.

Combine ground beef, Worchestershire sauce, cumin, coriander, and black pepper in a bowl. Divide mixture into four and form into patties with a 1” thickness, place patties onto a baking tray. Evenly sprinkle the 1 tbsp kosher salt onto both sides of the patties.

Broil patties for 12 minutes or until desired doneness.

On warm burger buns, spread balsamic mayo on tops and bottoms. Add onion sprouts on top halves of buns. Place a broiled beefsteak tomato slice on top of the sprouts, place burger patty on bottom halves of buns.


Preheat broiler to the highest setting. Cut the tops and tails off of tomatoes and slice into 1″ thick slices using a very sharp knife. Place a piece of parchment paper only big enough for the tomatoes cover, onto a baking tray. Place the tomatoes on parchment paper. Place a double layer of paper towel on top of the tomatoes to soak up excess moisture allow to sit for 2 minutes and repeat once again with a dry paper towel.

Sprinkle 3 tbsp sugar only onto the tomato slices being cautious not to get any on the tray.

Broil for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 3 tbsp sugar and broil again for 5 minutes or until softened.

Balsamic Mayo

Mix mayonnaise and balsamic vinegar together until evenly combined.
