Deja Moo SmashBurgerTacos


Burger Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp American mustard
  • 2 tbs sweet relish pickle
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tap paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon pickle juice
Smash Burger:
  • 500g beef mince, shaped into 60g balls (we like our mince with a bit of fat, so go for that 80/20 brisket mince)
  • 8 tortillas (the taco-sized ones)
  • 8 slices of burger cheese
  • Rub & Grub Deja Moo seasoning
  • Shredded lettuce
  • White onion, finely diced
  • Bread and butter pickles


  1. Get your sauce game on by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Give it a taste and adjust the flavours to suit your fancy.
  2. Fire up your BBQ or skillet for some high-heat cooking action. We used a Weber Go-Anywhere BBQ with a Rub & Grub GA Half Smash/Hot Plate. Smash burgers need that sizzling heat to turn out perfect.
  3. Get your favorite toppings ready. Shred some lettuce, slice that white onion, and grab those delightful bread and butter pickles.
  4. Place your beef balls on the skillet or smash/hot plate, giving them some space for the tortillas.
  5. Sprinkle a pinch of Rub & Grub Deja Moo seasoning on each patty, don't be stingy with the flavour.
  6. Slap a tortilla on top of each patty and press down really hard. You want those patties to be thin. Don't worry if the burger peeks out a bit, it's all part of the charm. Let those patties cook for around 3-4 minutes until they're beautifully browned and crispy on the bottom.
  7. Using a trusty spatula, flip the tortillas, slap on that cheese, and cover the tacos with a bowl or lid to help that cheese melt into ooey-gooey goodness.
  8. Once your burgers are cooked to perfection, slide them off the skillet or smash/hot plate and load them up with your favorite toppings.
  9. Serve them up hot and dig in! Enjoy every scrumptious bite of these delicious Smash Burger Tacos.
