Tjaden Ranch Nebraska Beef Recipes



The blue cheese sauce we use in this recipe is from The Pioneer Woman’s Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce (which we also recommend trying)!


You can season your hamburgers any way you like, but we suggest trying to the following: ☺


Ingredients for Hamburgers:


2 pounds Tjaden Ranch ground beef

1 tablespoon dried minced onion

1/4 cup Allegro Original Marinade

Salt & Pepper

Bacon slices, cooked

Other additional toppings (lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc.)


Ingredients for Blue Cheese Sauce:


4 tablespoons butter

1 large yellow or white onion

3/4 - 1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese




1. Mix ground beef, minced onion, marinade, salt and pepper in large bowl.

2. Form ground beef mixture into 8-10 hamburger patties.

3. Grill patties to your liking.

4. Meanwhile for the blue cheese sauce, saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter over high heat. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until dark and caramelized.

5. Reduce heat to simmer and pour in heavy cream.  Cook for about 5 minutes, or until thickened and reduced by half.

6. Stir in blue cheese until melted.

7. Build your hamburger with your favorite toppings, including sliced bacon, and top with a generous amount of the blue cheese sauce.
