Steroid Burger – Beefed to the max!
Steroid Burger – Beefed up to the max!
Introducing the twenty pounder (unfortunately not the price!) beef burger – a well BEEFED up snack!
Like a burger king whopper on steroids this burger is a real beauty, the beef pattie weighing in at 20lb’s is the equivalent of 80 McDonalds quarter pounder burgers to give it some scale. Made with prime British beef, infused with brie & red onions and topped with cheese singles, tomato salsa, gherkins, iceburg lettuce, tomatoes, bacon & rocket leaves. With that line up people couldn’t complain we weren’t getting our greens!
The burger was nicely parcelled in between two home made giant baps that even Mr Warburton would have been proud off. Sometimes with Giant food the taste gets compromised but our very own Matt made sure that this was not the case. The wonderful beef pattie infused with fresh French brie, red onions and beautifully seasoned with salt, pepper and mixed herbs.
This beauty would be the highlight of any bbq or party and so we would love to invite you to make your own. We’ve documented the steps below so check them out and start making your own pimped up burgers.
Step 1 - Buy the ingredients.
Burger Mix 8kg minced beef. 3 x Red Onions 4 x slices of white bread (bread crumbs) 4 x Eggs 2 x Brie Cheese Salt & Pepper Burger Bun / Bap Flour Yeast Oil Water Sesame Seeds (Enough of above to make equivalent to 4-5 loafs of bread) Burger Toppings 20 x Cheese singles 16 x Bacon Strips 1 x Lettuce 2 x Bags Rocket Salad 1 x Jar Pickled Gherkins 2 x Jars Burger Relish 6 x Tomatoes
Step 2 - Make the beef pattie.
2) Get your hands dirty and start working the egg, onion and breadcrumbs into the beef. Then make a pattie with two thirds of the beef, chop up your brie and place on top, then use the rest of the beef to form the top of the pattie. We spread out a couple of big sheets of foil in a cross formation over the pizza tray and placed the pattie on the tray, then wrapped up the bad boy ready for cooking. We couldn’t resist a cheeky photo to show the weight, this whopper weighing it at over 20lbs!
Step 3 - Cook the bad boy.
Also remember to change the oil / water if starts to get smoky or is filling up too much.
Step 4 - Make the bread baps.
Ensure they are cooked through fully before taking them out, if not they won’t survive the weight of the burger on top! We would recommend doing these before the burger goes in the oven just so you have some space, stupidly we did them at the same time – thankful for a double oven.
Step 5 - Top the Beast and Eat!
