On 11th April 2014, This was Dinner…
It was such a beautiful day yesterday. I, like many others I would guess, was hoping it would stay well into the weekend. Well nearly but not quite. We got rain, wind and then some sun but you definitely needed a jacket.
So as of today, we have had the barbecue out twice more than last year. We decided to make burgers. And oh what good burgers they were.
These took the advice of Jamie Oliver to use braising (or chuck) steak then we added some bits we had that needed using up to create a 147g burger. I then added mushrooms, shallots and brie. I was craving one I say on ‘You Gotta Eat Here’.
- Fire up the barbecue
- Mince some good quality braising steak
- Grate some manchego
- Slice up some mushrooms
- Slice up some shallots
- Slice up some brie
- Shred some lettuce
- Get brioche buns, breadcrumbs, sugar, grated mozzarella, butter, jalapeños, mayo & seasoning ready.
Mix the minced steak with breadcrumbs, mozzarella, manchego and seasoning. Form into four equal sized patties. Chill for at least half an hour.
Pop the shallots in some tin foil along with some butter and a little sugar. Seal and pop on the barbecue.
Melt a little butter and brush on the cut side of the brioche buns. Toast on the barbecue on either side.
Cook the burgers on the barbecue, turning regularly until fully cooked through. Add the brie for the last couple of minutes.
Fry some mushrooms in a little oil and butter.
Spread a little mayo on the bottom half of the bun. Top with lettuce.
Add the burger to the bun then top with the shallots and mushrooms. Add ketchup if required.
I must say though, finishing the shallots off in the frying pan made them so sweet and sticky.
