Ground Beef Recipes

Coffee-Rubbed Burger Dog with King's Hawaiian Kona Coffee BBQ Sauce and Apple Pecan Coleslaw

Georgia Grown: We were flattered to have Georgia Grown Executive Chef Holly Chute select our beef to use in one of her cooking demonstrations at the Georgia National Fair. We have included her recipe for you to try at home!


For dogs:

  • 2 lbs. ground beef

  • 1/2 cup coffee rub (May be purchased in grocery store, you'll find near BBQ rubs. You can also make your own at home, just search online for a recipe you like)

  • 8-pack Kings Hawaiian hot dog buns


For coleslaw:

  • 6 oz bagged coleslaw

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

  • 3/4 cup chopped scallions

  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp. sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder

  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple

  • 3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar



Make coleslaw: Toast and coarsely chop pecans, and thinly slice apple. Place pecans, apple, and coleslaw in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, combine mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, scallions, sugar, cinnamon, and chili powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Divide ground beef into 8 equal sized portions. Place each portion onto a sheet of plastic wrap and flatten each portion into a 6x3 inch rectangle. Roll up with plastic wrap to form a log, and twist at both ends to compact into a uniform shape.


Spread coffee rub onto a cutting board. Remove log from plastic wrap and roll in the coffee rub to coat evenly. Repeat with remaining 7 portions of beef. Place coffee rubbed dogs on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in fridge until ready to grill.


Grill dogs until they reach desired level of temperature preference (*we prefer no more than medium). You may find an instant read thermometer helpful. If desired, toast buns. Place cooked burger dogs in buns, top with coleslaw and a spoonful of barbeque sauce and serve.
