OT burger again

Postby x08 » 07 Jul 2010, 18:49

Just saw a really nice looking steak-burger on the news. NT$1500 and looked to be of the extra large variety. Chef was a foreigner. Any idea where to get it?

Go to Matsusei, buy said steak, cook both sides, put it in a bun...voila, steak burger!
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.

heh, funny. I am quite capable of cooking my own... but that's not the point. The burger looked real good and I'm not theonly one in my family who wants to go try it.

I know the guy.
This is how he describes it on his facebook:
Parmesan Ciabatta Bun, USDA Prime Beef Tenderloin, Seared Foie Gras, Black Truffle, Herbed Truffle Mayonnaise, White Truffle Oil, Tempura Onion Ring, Lettuce, Tomato, Cajun Fries & Basil Ketchup.....that is a burger.

He works at one of the big hotels down there.
Although that's not much help, is it?
I'll ask him.

It doesn't sound like any burger I know, he should invent a new name, le steak burgette! What's with the craze for steak all over Taiwan right now?!? Complaining about crazy American beef and now steak is the latest thing :roflmao:
I guess the American beef lobby aren't involved in this somehow... :cool: The USDA Prime means US Drug Added Prime steak...

Back home, The National Burger is made out of steak, not mince patty. Plus, our patties are mixed with corn flour -masa- and rarely have more than just a sprinkle of wheat flour.

So steak burger makes a lot of sense to me. The rest is just trimmings.

ps.
ciabatta? mmm, that doesn't sound too good, actually.

I don't THINK so! :roll: What it is, is a bunch of expensive ingredients cobbled together to take the piss out of people with far more money than sense.

So the beef isn't even ground? Sounds like quite a workout for the teeth and jaws there. And the fries go IN the burger? This is confusing. :p
