2 TBS dry garlic powder
3/4 TBS dry power ginger

Maple-Bacon Beer Burgers
1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
1/4 cup beer
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
4 slices reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
4 extra-thick slices Maplewood-smoked bacon, cut in half, cooked crisp
Combine Ground Beef, beer, and Worcestershire in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place buns, cut-side down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.
Place burgers on bottom of buns; top with bacon slices.
Philly Beef and Cheese Sandwiches
1 beef Top Sirloin Steak Boneless, 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
4 whole-grain or whole wheat hoagie rolls, split, toasted
6 thin slices reduced-fat provolone cheese
Cut beef Top Sirloin Steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8-inch thick strips. Season beef with garlic powder and pepper. Set aside.
Cook's Tip: You may freeze beef steak in resealable food-safe plastic bag 30 to 45 minutes or until firm, but not frozen solid for easier slicing.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and pepper; stir-fry 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
Cook's Tip: In some classic Philly Beef Cheese Steak Sandwiches, you'll find the addition of sautéed sliced mushrooms. You may add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms and stir-fry with onion and pepper.
Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in same skillet until hot. Add half of beef; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and remaining beef.
Return beef and vegetables to skillet; cook and stir until heated through. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Top beef with cheese slices. Heat, covered, 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted; stir gently to mix. Place beef mixture on bottom half of rolls.
