Ingredients

  • 4-5 slices of Bacon
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 4-5 slices of American Cheese
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Large Tomato
  • 8 leaves of Lettuce
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 8-10 slices of Dill Pickle
  • 4-5 Flour Tortillas

For the Sriracha Animal Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Chopped Dill Pickle
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Start by cooking the bacon. Place it on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake the bacon in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until it reaches the level of crispness you desire.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, prepare the sriracha animal sauce. You just need to stir all the ingredients together. Then set aside.
  3. Next, slice the tomato, onion, and avocado. When slicing the tomatoes, slice them into large half round slices.
  4. Form 4-5 patties using the ground beef. The patties should be thin and about the size of your palm. Since burgers get fat in the middle as they cook I like to make the center of the burger a little thinner so when it fattens up when it cooks the burger are a consistent thickness. Note: I made 5 patties with 1 pound of ground beef. If you want slightly bigger burgers, make 4 quarter pounders.
  5. Once the bacon is ready it is go time! Heat a skillet or grill pan over high heat. Add just enough butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the burger patties with salt and pepper, and add them to the pan. Then add the slices of red onion and cook them alongside the burgers.
  6. Let the burgers cook for 2 minutes and then flip them. Flip the red onion too. Top the burgers with the cheese and cook for another 2 minutes. The burgers should the thin and they will cook very quickly.
  7. Now you need to assemble the tacos. I like to quickly heat up the tortillas first, I place them over a gas burner and one by one I heat them over a medium flame for 4 seconds a side.
  8. To assemble the tacos, first slice the burgers in half, and break the slices of bacon in half. Fill each tortilla with the lettuce, then a half round slice of tomato, some avocado, a burger (use both halves of one burger), some grilled onions, some pickles, and about a teaspoon of the animal sauce. Continue until all of the burgers are assembled, and then eat!

Recipe Notes

The sriracha animal sauce takes just minutes to mix up, and you probably have all of the ingredients in your fridge. If you want to skip it, you can. Or, you can try using thousand island or ranch instead.
