No. 16: Short Rib-Stuffed Burger from Bizaare Ave Café
Is there any dish that can't be improved by the addition of more meat? I don't think so. (Sorry, vegetabletarians.) Take the humble hamburger, a simple patty of ground beef placed in a bun and garnished with an adequate but uninspired selection of condiments.
Now add more meat. Not just to make a bigger burger, but to make a
bigger, tastier, more lusciously decadent burger--say, stuffing the basic
patty with succulent braised and shredded short rib meat. Then throw
out the cottony, white bread bun and allow your creation to rest on a
buttery toasted brioche roll. Mustard and American cheese are so. . .
common. Instead, slather your bigger, better burger with basil aioli,
top it with molten provolone and serve it with a side of truffle fries.
Then take a bow. And try not to drool.
