  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 6 burgers

Ingredients

2 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® brand ground beef (80% fat/20% lean)

2 teaspoons dried oregano, divided

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

3/4 cup garlic stuffed green olives

3/4 pitted Kalamata olives

1/2 cup roasted red peppers

6 buns

6 slices provolone cheese

6 slices Black forest ham

12 slices salami

12 slices pancetta

12 slices cappacola

6 slices mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup pepperoncinis

Directions

1In a large bowl, combine the ground beef with 1 teaspoon oregano, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Form into 6 patties a little bit larger than the buns. Chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the olive spread.

2In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and 1 teaspoon oregano. Using a mini chopper, chop the green olives, kalamata olives and roasted red peppers into about 1/4-inch pieces. Combine the olives and peppers with the oil and vinegar mixture. Set aside.

3Heat the grill to high heat. Rub some oil on the grill grates.

4Place the buns on the grill, cut side down and grill for 30-60 seconds, until toasted. Remove and set aside.

5Add the burger patties to the grill, and grill for 6 minutes. Flip. Grill for 4 more minutes. While still on the grill, top each patty with 1 slice of provolone, 1 slice ham, 2 slices salami, 2 slices pancetta, 2 slices cappacola and 1 slice mozzarella cheese. Close the grill, and cook until the cheese is melted.

6To assemble, spread the olive mixture on the top and bottom buns. Add a patty to the bottom bun. Top with pepperoncinis. Add the top bun. Enjoy.
