  • 1 1/2 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® ground beef
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 slices prosciutto, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 4 burger buns
  1. Form ground beef in four equal patties (6-ounces each); refrigerate.
  2. In a small sauce pan bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar, stir until dissolved. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes until vinegar is reduced by half; remove from heat.
  3. While sauce reduces, crisp prosciutto in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes; remove from skillet and reserve for topping.
  4. Season patties with salt and pepper. In the same cast iron skillet, cook burgers over medium-high heat on the first side for 3-4 minutes. Flip burgers and top each with blue cheese and prosciutto. Cover and cook another 3-4 minutes or until burgers reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
  5. Place arugula on the bottom of four buns, drizzle with balsamic reduction, top with burger and top bun.
