How to stream the World Series on FOX:
- ¾ cup sour cream
- ⅓ to ½ cup Dijon mustard
- 1 large clove garlic, grated or pasted
- Salt and pepper
- ½ to ¾ cup finely chopped fresh herbs (such as chives, dill and parsley), combined
- 4 pretzel burger rolls
- Non-aerosol neutral cooking spray
- 1½ pounds ground sirloin
- Kosher salt and coarse black pepper
- Worcestershire sauce, about a teaspoon per burger
- 1 cup finely chopped white onion
- Dill pickle slices
- About 1½ cups chopped iceberg lettuce
- Pub cheese, any flavor
Preheat oven to 250˚F.
Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl.
For the burgers, warm rolls in oven.
Preheat large cast iron skillet or griddle with a thin spray of oil over medium heat. Score meat into 4 portions and make cylindrical piles, season generously with kosher salt and black pepper, then sprinkle the meat with a little Worcestershire sauce. Turn heat up to high, add meat to pan, press firmly with metal spatula, and cook until crusty and well browned, about 2 minutes. Flip patties and press a minute more for medium rare, an extra minute for medium well.
Build: slather tops and bottoms of rolls with sauce. To bun bottoms, add chopped onions, pickles, lettuce, burgers, slather 2 heaping tablespoons of pub cheese on patties, and set the pretzel bun tops in place.
