Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Fresh Texas toast, buttered, may be used instead of frozen product.

Dill pickle chips or pickled jalapeño peppers may be substituted for pickled okra.


  • 1 Pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/2 Cup beer
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices frozen Texas Toast
  • 2 spears pickled okra, sliced


To prepare barbecue sauce, combine beer, brown sugar, ketchup, chipotle peppers and Worcestershire sauce in saucepan; bring to a boil.

Simmer 8 to 10 minutes until sauce is thickened; set aside.

Lightly shape ground beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals.

Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, prepare Texas Toast according to package directions.

Cut each piece of toast in half.

For each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce over one toast half. 

Top with burger, another tablespoon sauce and okra slices.

Close sandwich.
