We turned to our friends at Bad Byron’s to help us re-invent this childhood classic. Bad Byron’s Butt Rub has a funny name and some serious flavor. We jazzed up the tomato-rich sauce with this smoky grilling blend and loaded up buttery buns with the result. Feels like weeknight sitcoms, homework and nostalgia.


1.Add Smoked Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until brown.
2.Add onions, green pepper, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, or until vegetables begin to get soft.
