I give full credit for this recipe to my 7 year old daughter - she created it on her own!

Directions

  1. Grate the zest from the lemon, lime, and orange into a large bowl. Squeeze the juice from half of each piece of fruit into the bowl. Whisk in 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce. Stir in ground beef; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Form meat into patties. Grill with lid open, about 3 minutes per side. Brush each burger with one tablespoon barbeque sauce during grilling, coating both sides. Top burgers with pepperjack cheese and cook until cheese is melted and meat is no longer pink in the center, about 1 additional minute.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe changed my angle on home made burgers I'd cut the total citrus amounts in half to keep that bold beef flavor. My wife is a citrus skeptic and was impressed. Try using different cheeses. Blue cheese and goat were surprisingly good fits

My boyfriend and I LOVED this recipe. We changed it a bit, though, and made it more like sloppy joe's and used swiss cheese instead of pepperjack. Definitely a winner.

I saw this recipe and I had to try it. The burgers were tangy and had a refreshing end of summer flavor, but something was missing. I think the next time I make then I'll reduce the fruit zest I use by 1/2 and perhaps add some jalapenos or cayenne pepper to give it a little zip. Some tiny bits of the orange may make them a little more juicy and sweet. Certainly a good start, but it needs some tweaking still.
