Roasted Pepper Elk Burgers

1 lb ground elk (or any other ground meat)*

1 poblano or passilla Pepper (depending on availability)

1 anaheim Pepper

1 jalapeño Pepper

¼ cup minced red onion

3 slices Pepper Jack Cheese

1 pitted and sliced avocado

2 Tbsp Jack's Paw Lickn' Rub or your favorite burger seasoning

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

3 whole wheat buns

Prepare a hot charcoal fire or hot gas grill. Take the peppers and rub them down with the olive oil. Place the peppers on the grill over direct heat and grill them, turning frequently until they are blackened on the outside. Once they are blackened put them in a glass bowl and cover with saran wrap. Let them steam in the bowl for 15 minutes.

After fifteen minutes remove each pepper and peel off the outside blackened skin leaving a good clean meaty pepper behind. Cut the stem end of each pepper off and slice the pepper in half lengthwise. Rinse with water and remove all the seeds and veins in the pepper. (If you like some heat leave some Jalapeño pepper seeds and veins intact.) Once the seeds and veins are removed chop the peppers into ¼ inch pieces.

Put the meat in a large bowl. Add the chopped peppers and minced onions to the meat and mix well. Form 3 burgers - about1/3lb each. Sprinkle both sides of the burger with Jack's Paw Lickn' Rub or your favorite burger seasoning. Use some grill spray or vegetable oil and oil the BBQ grill to prevent sticking.

Put the burgers on the grill for 3-4 minutes on one side and flip over. Put one slice of pepper jack cheese on each burger and close the lid. After 3-4 minutes remove the lid. During the last minute put the buns on the grill and toast them.

The burgers should be rare to medium rare depending how thick you made them. Leave the burgers on the grill longer if you like them medium well to well done (not recommended for game meat).

Place the Roasted Pepper Burgers on the bun, top with sliced avocado and your favorite condiments. Serve with your favorite oven fries or tater tots and you've got a great summertime meal!

Here are the roasted peppers!  After they are blackened put them in a plastic bag, seal it up and sweat the peppers for about 20 minutes.  WHERE GLOVES IF YOUR SENSITIVE TO THE HEAT!!!

If you all open a restaurant I would visit. It could be anywhere in this great country and I would still find a way to visit and eat your food. LOL! Until then I guess I will have to buy some rubs and try myself :-)
