My Cleveland Browns-inspired burger draws on the influence of Eastern European cuisine, as well as good old American French fries! For my Polish Boy burger, I sear a beef patty, then top it with a helping of Kielbasa, a handful of fries, and a pile of coleslaw.

Seattle is a town famous for fabulous, flavorful foods. It was hard to choose from so many tasty options, but coffee and cherries are two that jump out at me as uniquely suitable burger flavorings. I make a quick coffee rub, which lends a slightly bitter, smoky, spicy flavor to the burger. I balance it out with Cherry jam, sauteed with caramelized onions.
While the Mid-Atlantic has it's own authentic regional cuisine, I couldn't resist making Washington's burger with a political spin. The Red vs Blue burger uses roasted red bell pepper to provide a sweet and savory flavor (not to mention the color red) to the burger.
My tribute to the food truck revolution is a Taco Truck Burger for the Oakland Raiders, since Oakland is one of the early pioneers of Food Truck culture. My personal creation is a seared chorizo and beef patty wrapped, burrito-style, in a flour tortilla with avocado, cheese and pico de Gallo.
I live in San Francisco, and one of the first "foods" I fell in love with when I moved here was the wonderful diversity of Northern California wine - and so I needed to work some wine into my San Francisco 49ers burger.

We’re going to start of journey of NFL Team inspired burgers with the Tennessee Titans. The burger is made of ground beef, which I dust in one of my favorite dry rubs, salt and pepper right before frying off in the pan. Before it’s finished, I top the patty with some jalepeno jack cheese, and homemade pulled pork (you can use store bought pulled pork, or pre-cooked rids and shred the meat.
When it’s time to cook a steak at home, Skirt steak is very often my goto cut. It’s a fairly lean cut, that has a ton of natural flavor and is great on both the grill and the stove top. Generally skirt steak has a bit more flavor, than the more expensive cuts like filet mignon, New York Strip, and ribeye, but is still tender enough to appeal to just about everyone. It also tends to tak
