Drie overgepende recepten


die ik vandaag tegenkwam in de internationale pers

Minneapolis Juicy Lucy burger

New York Times

Kosher salt and black pepper
1 ½ pounds ground beef, at least 15 percent fat
4 slices American cheese
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large yellow onion (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch rounds
½ teaspoon granulated sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
4 soft hamburger buns, split
Bread-and-butter pickles, for serving

In a small bowl, stir together 2 teaspoons salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. Divide the beef into four equal portions, then halve each of those portions. Gently roll each portion into a ball using the palm of your hand, then flatten each into a disk shape on a large cutting board, pressing with your fingers and palm until just over 4 inches wide and 1/4-inch thick. Repeat to form eight patties. Season both sides of each patty with the salt-and-pepper blend.

Add one slice cheese to the center of one patty, folding any overhanging corners of the cheese inward. Using a spatula, lift another patty from the cutting board and place it on top of the cheese, pressing gently to connect both patties. Gently pinch the edges of the patties together to thoroughly seal, then use your fingers to round the edges by pressing and patting along the perimeter. Repeat with the remaining patties, forming three more burgers, and set aside.

In a large (preferably 12-inch) cast-iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; sprinkle with sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, adding 2 tablespoons water about every 5 minutes to prevent burning, until tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Once the onions are caramelized, transfer them to a bowl. (If you have any bits left in the pan, wipe them out.)

Add the oil to the skillet to lightly coat the bottom and heat over medium-high until scalding-hot, about 2 minutes. Add the burgers and cook until seared and dark brown on the outside, 3 to 5 minutes per side. (You’ll want to let the burgers cook undisturbed as long as possible to develop a crisp sear and to prevent them from splitting. Their insides will cook through by the time the outsides form a proper sear. Resist the urge to cut them open, as the cheese will spurt out.) Transfer burgers to a clean cutting board to rest.

Meanwhile, toast the buns: Scrape up and remove from the pan any cheese that may have leaked, leaving a thin layer of accumulated fat in the pan. Reduce the heat to medium. Working in batches, toast the buns cut-side down until warmed and toasted in spots, about 1 minute. Form sandwiches by layering pickles, patties, then caramelized onions on buns. Serve immediately.

Naam afgeleid van Labskaus (meerdere keren besproken op deze site)

500g lamb neck fillet, cut into chunky pieces
1 tbsp plain flour
3 tbsp vegetable oil, plus more if needed
1 large onion
Onion, chopped
4 carrots
Carrot, cut into chunks
350g turnip
Turnips, cut into chunks
250ml bitter ale (we used Cains Finest)
250ml chicken stock
2 bay leaves
2 thyme sprigs
2 beef stock cubes
500g potatoes
Potato, cut into chunks
pickled red cabbage
Red cabbage on a plate or cooked beetroot, to serve (optional)

Die biet die komt uit Labskaus!

Toss the lamb pieces in flour and season well. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over a high heat. Working in batches, brown the lamb on all sides, adding more oil if needed, then set aside on a plate.

Turn down the heat to medium and pour in 2 tbsp oil, tip in the onion, carrots and turnips, add a pinch of salt and cook for 8 mins until softened and coloured. Return the meat to the dish along with the ale, stock and herbs. Crumble in the stock cubes and season well.

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, sitting the potatoes on the top of the stew. Cook for 2 hrs until the meat is tender and the potatoes are soft. Serve with pickled cabbage or beetroot, if you like.
