Oh, how do I even begin to describe this Steakhouse Blue Cheese Burger. Exquisite? Luscious? Robust?
Hmm…let’s go with booshie. I learned this word from a self proclaimed booshie EX-Girlfriend a few years back and have been eagerly waiting for the moment to use it. That moment has finally come! For those of you that don’t know what this slang word means, allow me to define it in my words…
Booshie (adj): To act or appear in a way that gives off the impression of a high social standing.
Ok, so how does that apply to this simple burger?
Well my skeptically bound friend, allow me to explain. Here in the United States, steakhouses will serve some form of blue cheese crusted steak. These steaks are packed with rich flavors and the price tag obviously reflects it. Even still, I recommend you go to your bank, take out a small loan and indulge in a steakhouse near you. If this is not an option then may I suggest giving this recipe a try?
The burger you see is modeled after these upscale steaks. The patties are a balanced blend of beef, rosemary, and garlic. Topped with melted blue cheese, balsamic caramelized onions and a generous dusting of buttery chive panko crumbs.
Now for the booshie part, this Steakhouse Blue Cheese Burger cost $3.50. That’s roughly 1/14th of the price of the steak it’s modeled after. Not to mention the money you’re saving on tax and tip…oh and the gas money to get to the steakhouse…um…sorry, my frugality is slipping out. Now I know what your argument will be. I imagine you saying…”It’s about the experience. This burger is no way to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday…oh, maybe a man’s but definitely not a woman’s!”
This is true and I totally agree. Go and treat yourself on your special days. With that said, you have another 363 days left in the year…what’s your excuse? Right now, I expect you to either be in a suit or dress being pampered by an extremely nice waiter or on your way to the market with this recipe printed out.
