Step away from the traditional, classical way of making burgers and try something out of the ordinary that everyone will love. (by Adam Fleishman)   Ingredients
  • 1 cup ruby port
  • 2 pounds mixed ground beef brisket, skirt steak and sirloin steak (20 percent fat)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup Stilton cheese (3 ounces), softened
  • Umami dust, for sprinkling
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns, buttered and toasted
  Preparation
  1. In a small saucepan, cook the port over moderate heat until reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a cast-iron griddle until very hot. Form the meat into four 4-by-1-inch patties without packing too tightly. Season generously with salt and pepper. Arrange the patties on the griddle, cover with a roasting pan and cook over moderately high heat for 4 minutes, until very crusty. Flip the patties and cook, covered, for 2 minutes longer; top with the Stilton and cook uncovered for 1 minute. Transfer the patties to a plate and sprinkle with the umami dust, let rest for 2 minutes and set on the buns. Drizzle with the reduced port, top with the buns and serve.
