Steakhouse Blue Cheese Burger

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?

Steakhouse Blue Cheese 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?

Steakhouse Blue Cheese Burger

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.

Ingredients
Rosemary Burger Patty
Caramelized Onions
Chive Panko Crumb
Assembly
Servings: People
Instructions
Caramelized Onions
  1. In a large pan set over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter with the olive oil. Throw in the onions and a large pinch of salt (about 1 tsp). Saute for 3 minutes.
  2. Drop the heat down to low and add in the balsamic vinegar. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to give this a stir every 5 minutes. Check for seasoning and set aside.
Chive Panko Crumb
  1. In a pan set over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter.
  2. Add in the panko and stir until the crumbs are golden brown 3-5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste and mix in the chopped chives. Set aside.
Rosemary Burger Patty
  1. Mix the ground beef, chopped rosemary, garlic powder, salt and pepper together. Stop as soon as it is mixed, you don't want to over mix here.
  2. Form the patties into four 8 oz patties (1 inch thick) and make a small indent in the middle of each patty (this prevents the patty from bulging up in the middle).
  3. Heat your grill pan or any heavy bottom pan to medium-high. Grease with the canola oil.
  4. Give your patties a light pinch of salt and pepper. Throw them on the grill.
  5. Smile at the sound of the sizzle (this step is optional but highly recommended).
  6. Flip and finish cooking (see notes for cooking times). Add the cheese one minute prior to finishing.
  7. Throw the bread on the grill, cover and finish cooking for the last minute. This will not work in a pan (it will burn, see notes for alternatives).
Assembly
  1. Allow the patties to rest for 5 minutes on a plate.
  2. Build the burger and serve!
Recipe Notes

For a medium-rare burger, you will cook each side for 3 minutes and for a medium burger, you will need 4 minutes).

Example for medium rare burger: Add patty to pan, cook for 3 minutes, flip, cook for 2 minutes, add cheese, cover and cook for 1 minutes.

To toast bread, melt enough butter to coat the pan over low-medium heat. Place the bread in and cook for 2-3 minutes.
