Topped with a pile of sticky onions that have been gently caramelized in balsamic vinegar and a generous spoon full of creamy bleu cheese sauce, this burger is essentially a steak as it takes its retro vibe from classic steakhouse recipes.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Into a blender, add Whiskey (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Ketchup (1 Tbsp) , Dark Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Organic Honey (1 Tbsp) , Chunky Seville Marmalade (1/2 Tbsp) , Worcestershire Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Yellow Onion (1/4) , and Garlic (2 cloves) and blend until smooth.
Step 2
Pour the mixture into a saucepan and simmer on a very slow heat, stirring continuously until the sauce has thickened and turned glossy.
Step 3
Combine 80/20 Lean Free Range Ground Beef (1.3 lb) , Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1 handful) , Coarse Sea Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Shape into large circular patties – about 2 cm in thickness – and refrigerate until needed.
Step 4
For the caramelized onions, fry the Yellow Onions (4) in Butter (1 Tbsp) until softened. Add in the Brown Sugar (1 tsp) and Balsamic Vinegar (3 Tbsp) , and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until reduced and sticky. Keep warm until needed.
Step 5
For the blue cheese sauce, place the Blue Cheese (3/4 cup) and Heavy Cream (1 cup) into a small saucepan and gently stir to melt the cheese into the cream. Sauce will continue to thicken once removed from the heat.
Step 6
Toast your Pretzel Buns (6) on the stove top.
Step 7
To cook the burger, heat a griddle pan to screaming hot and place each patty on it to sear for about a minute or so.
Step 8
To assemble your burger, simply start off with your patty, topped off with a generous helping of sticky onions and a good dollop of the blue cheese sauce. Top with the second bun and prepare for a monster mouthful that’s full of smokey richness!
