Old South Burgers with Peach Compote

Total Recipe Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Makes 4 servings

1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
1 cup diced peaches, fresh or frozen
1 cup diced sweet onion
1 cup Budweiser beer
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup goat cheese
4 pre-baked biscuits, split

1. To prepare peach compote, heat large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add peaches and onion; cook and stir until lightly browned about 5 minutes. Add beer, brown sugar and rosemary; bring to a boil. Cook until peaches and onion are soft and liquid is almost gone, 13 to 15 minutes; keep warm.
2. Lightly shape ground beef into four 1/2-inch 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.
3. Evenly spread goat cheese on bottom half of each biscuit; top with burgers. Evenly spoon peach compote over burgers. Close sandwiches.

Cook’s Tip:
Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
