63 Acres BC Beef Burger with Horseradish Mayo



About the Recipe

Is there anything better in the summer, than a burger fresh from the grill? I like to keep my burgers simple, with a thick patty made from BC grown 63 Acres beef, piled high with cheese, tomatoes and a couple tasty condiments, all held togehter on a quality bun.



63 Acres Beef Patties I am a big fan of searing my patties in a cast iron skillet, of course a summertime BBQ is also a fantastic way to celebrate BC beef with family and friends around the grill. You could make your own patties or purchase premade ones. I am definitely a 100% meat guy in my burger patty, no filler or additional love aside from salt and pepper on the meat as you are cooking it, but of course there are 1000’s of delicious options and variations. Pro-tip: Make sure the size of the patty matches the bun ;)

Tomato Ketchup I love this recipe, and it’s incredibly versatile with other fruits, blueberry, cranberry or red or yellow bell peppers.

  • 5 cups chopped canned diced tomatoes (you could also use fresh)

  • ½ cup red wine vinegar

  • ½ cup BC honey (or brown sugar or maple syrup, the flavour will change but it will be delicious)

  • 3 tbsp kosher salt

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper

Horseradish Mayo

  • 1 cup mayo

  • 2 tbsp horseradish

  • Squeeze of lemon

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • ½ tsp kosher salt

  • 5 cracks of black pepper

  • Optional (1 tbsp thinly sliced chives or green onions)


BC is home to a wide variety of delicious locally made cheeses made with 100% Canadian Milk. We’re lucky to have so many locally made cheeses available in BC; they are perfect to enjoy on their own, or as part of your favourite summer recipes. I love sharp tangy BC cheeses on my burger, some other great options would be aged farmhouse, courtenay cheddar, gouda or havarti.


BC Greenhouse grown tomatoes are a consistent and delicious choice. Greenhouse grown vegetables, like these tomatoes, are the future of BC’s food supply. We can grow 10 to 20 times the amount of vegetables on the same area of field, feeding millions of people healthy, fresh vegetables virtually year round.


I love Terra Breads Brioche Buns, they are a slow-rise bun crafted over several days. Hand shaped and fresh baked daily. Available year round at Terra Breads bakery + café locations in Vancouver. Plus, Terra Breads is celebrating 30 years this year!

Serve with a fantastic potato salad recipe.

Assemble the burgers after cooking, eat and enjoy. There's never been a better time to Buy BC and support the growers, producers and the food we love from here at home and this BC Beef burger is a great way to support four different industries.
