Luck of the Irish Burger Recipe by Anthony Meidenbauer, chef at Holsteins at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
What you’ll need:
2 lb 80% lean ground beef
4 large hamburger buns
4 Tbsp Russian dressing
2 cups braised cabbage (see recipe below)
8 slices Swiss cheese
¾ lb sliced corned beef
Salt and pepper

How to make it:
1. Preheat your grill to direct, high heat or heat coals until white and hot.
2. Divide the ground beef into fourths and shape into patties ½-inch thick. Season the patties with salt and pepper and grill over high heat until cooked to desired temperature, about 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
3. In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, warm braised cabbage and corned beef. Place 2 slices of Swiss cheese on each patty and allow to melt. Dress each bun with 1 Tbsp Russian dressing and top with each hamburger. Top each burger with cabbage and a few slices of corned beef and close the bun. Makes 4 burgers.
