Roast beef burgers are incredibly delicious. They are a delightful alternative to hamburgers. They are very similar to an Arby’s roast beef sandwich or other sandwiches and burgers from fast food restaurants. The advantage is they are homemade. Cooking these burgers involves a little more preparation and time, but it certainly is well worth the effort. To achieve the best results, roast the meat at 350° Fahrenheit until it is cooked rare. Ensure that you do not overcooked the beef. The last thing you want is a well-done piece of meat.
The internal temperature of the meat should be between 130 and 140 degrees. At this point, remove the meat from the oven, let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes, and cut it into superthin pieces. Remember to slice the meat opposite to the grain. If you slice it with a grain, it will not be tender.
After this, simply place the meat onto aluminum foil, pour the juices back over, add the vegetables overtop, seal the foil, and place it on the barbecue for 10 to 15 minutes. If you don’t want to use the barbecue, place it back of the oven at 400 to 425°F for the same amount of time. This recipe will make about 4 good sized burgers.
Serve these burgers up with your favorite sauce, french fries, and coleslaw. Your dinner guests are guaranteed to love these roast beef burgers.
