Bite with Belkys: Wellington Burger from BGR The Burger Joint
The South Beach Wine and Food Festival kicks off this Thursday, and we're giving you a sneak peak of what's cooking at the burger competition. Time to grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Mark Bucher
The Restaurant: BGR The Burger Joint
The Dish: Wellington Burger
2 lbs. of ground beef (50 percent 80/20 chuck, 50 percent sirloin)
1 white onion, diced
1 red onion, diced
4 cups of mushroom, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbs of fresh thyme
2 Tbs of fresh rosemary
1/2 cup of duck pate
2 Tbs of dijon mustard
4 brioche sesame seeded buns
1/4 cup of blue cheese
Method of Preparation:
-Begin by shaping the burger pattie. Chef Mark says to mark a small dimple in the center so the meat does not shrink while cooking.
-Then, season the meat with salt, pepper, and an all spice blend and grill.
-Next, prepare the wellington topping. In a hot pan, add clarified butter and sauté white and red onion and season with salt and pepper. Also, toss in mushrooms, garlic, thyme, rosemary, duck pate and dijon mustard.
Make sure to toast the buns. Then, at the restaurant they spread their mojo sauce and add blue cheese, the burger meat and wellington topping. You can also serve a side of sweet potato fries.
Serving Suggestion: Double Chocolate Shake
