RECIPES: Recipe Details
This burger was created for friends of mine from a place called Kells in County Meath Ireland. Many people outside of Ireland would be surprised to find out that the Irish love curry sauces. This burger embodies many popular flavors from Ireland that can easily be found in local markets.
6 Cups Ground Beef Chuck
4 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tablespoons Steak Sauce
1/2 of a Small Onion Extremely Finely Diced
6 Thin Slices Irish Bacon diced
Approximately 4 Teaspoons Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Curry Powder
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Cup Breadcrumbs
2/3 Cup Cheddar Cheese in 1 cm Cubes
Whole wheat burger buns
Ground Sea Salt
Combine the gorund beef and the two sauces in a large mixing bowl. Be sure not to over mix the beef. Next add the onion (note it must be super finely diced/minced) and diced bacon (uncooked). Add approximately 4 teaspoons of ground pepper, enough to lightly cover the beef in the bowl and the curry powder. Mix lightly with hands. Add the olive oil and breadcrumbs and mix well being sure once again to lighlty handle the meat. Form the mixture into 12 evenly sized balls and lay on wax or parchment paper. Flatten each ball into a burger patty. Make a cup shape out of six patties. Divide and place cubes of cheese evenly into each cupped patty and top with one of the six plain flattened patties. Pinch together the patties to create a hamburger with a hidden cheese center. Salt each of the burgers immediately prior to grilling. Grill as desired (reccommend well or medium well as bacon needs to cook). Toast buns, and lightly butter and a dollop of Mayonaise before placing the burger.
For best results these cook best after freezing indivdually for a few hours.
