178/18 – Wagyu Burgers:
I had ordered some A4 grade Japanese Wagyu steaks from Farmison and they mentioned they had burgers available from the trim so I ordered some of those too! Time for Wagyu burgers.
2x150g Japanese Wagyu Burgers for £12.95. Not sure why but I thought there was 4 burgers but there are 2 per pack. That’s quite expensive for a burger but they are quite special so it was worth it!
The vac pac had been a bit tight and shaped the burgers. I patted them out to round shapes again before cooking. They were noticeably pink and had a nice smell of aged meat.
A full chimney of Oxford Charcoal Oak Lumpwood poured into the Napoleon Pro 22 and first run of the grill grates on this grill.
A pack of my Ribman Holy F**K bacon went on first.
Once the bacon was cooked I piled it up in a cool zone, salted the burgers and started cooking them along with some onions.
I tried some plastic cheese this time and it didn’t really melt so my burger doesn’t look as good as usual! I have another pack of these burgers and will have another go. My usual burger sauce on the bottom.
£12.95 for 2 burgers is a fair whack but they were really tasty. Strong taste of aged beef but incredibly juicy. Really, really good.
Shame about the cheese, will go back to my normal cheese next time!
