ingredients

Hamburger:

  • 4 slices of Castello® Burger Blue
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef about 6% fat
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • ⅓ ounce lurpak butter
  • 4 fresh burger buns from your local bakery
  • 1¾ ounces purified frisee salad
  • ⅞ ounce rinsed fresh pea sprouts
  • ⅞ ounce rinsed china rose sprouts
  • 1¾ ounces chili mayonnaise

Pickled red onions:

  • ½ cup vinegar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 red onion cut into wedges

Carrot fries:

  • 3 peeled carrots
  • 4 cups frying oil
  • sea salt

preparation

1. Boil the vinegar, sugar and water in a saucepan. Add the red onions and let the pickling juice cool in the refrigerator.

2. Cut the carrots into very thin strips with a peeler. Heat some oil in a saucepan. Test the temperature with a small piece of bread – the bread should turn golden.

3. Roast the carrots in the hot oil for about 3 min. Remove them with a slotted spoon and let them drain. Place the carrot fries on some paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt.

4. Stir the ground meat with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Form the meat into 4 burgers (about 10 cm in diameter).

5. Melt the butter in a saute pan until golden. Fry the steaks about 1½ min. on each side over medium heat for about 2 min. Cover the pan with a lid, remove it from the heat and let the burgers rest.

6. Warm up the buns in the oven and cut them in half. Spread them with chili mayonnaise and top the bottom bun with lettuce and sprouts.

7. Add the burgers and top with a slice of Castello® Burger Blue and the pickled red onions. Finish with the top bun and serve with the carrot fries.
