Audacious, Herbaceous Beef Burgers

From Every Day with Rachael Ray June/July 2008

1 1/2 pound ground beef sirloin
1/3 C finely chopped flat-leaf parsley (a generous handful)
1/3 C finely chopped dill (a generous handful)
1/4 C chopped chives
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (eyeball it)
Salt and pepper
One 4oz log goat cheese (or use a creamy cheese like Boursin instead)
1/3 C sour cream
1/4 C dijon mustard
3 Tbsp honey
4 crusty whole grain kaiser rolls, split
4 leaves green-leaf lettuce
1/4 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
4 radishes, thinly sliced
4 thin slices red onion

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a large bowl, combine the beef, parsley, dill, chives and Worcestershire sauce; season with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 4 mounds. Press 1 piece of cheese into the center of each mound, then form a patty around the cheese. Drizzle the patties with EVOO and grill for 4 minutes on each side for medium.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sour cream, mustard and honey; season with salt and pepper. Layer each roll bottom with lettuce, cucumber, radish, onion and a burger. Spread honey mustard sauce on the cut side of the but tops and set into place.
