    Whether you’re a dedicated vegetarian or you’re just trying to cut back a little on your meat consumption, the Impossible Burger is a great way to get that beefy flavor you love without paying the butcher a visit. And the great thing about Impossible is that is handles and cooks just like ground beef. That said, we do have a few tips of getting the best Impossible Burger possible: Make sure you build in time to defrost the impossible burger in the fridge for 24 hours. When it is defrosted, place it in a bowl and season with beef and prime rib rub. Mix well then form into four 4 oz patties. Shape them into rounds about 4” in diameter. Place the patties on a sheet tray and transfer to the fridge to cool completely.

    Before you start to cook the patties, mix together ketchup, mayonnaise and hot sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

    Place a cast iron griddle directly on the grill grate while the grill preheats. You want to make sure you get a good sear so the cast iron needs to be super hot.

    When the grill is hot, place 1 TBSP canola oil onto the grill grate. When the cast iron is almost smoking, place the patties on the griddle and press down with the back of a spatula. Close the lid and cook the patties 2-3 minutes per side only opening the grill to flip halfway through then to remove.

    After you remove the patties, set them aside to toast the buns. Place buns cut side down directly on the grill grate and cook until lightly browned. Remove from grill and spread each side with special sauce or preferred condiments.
