Mini Prime Cheese Burgers with Remoulade and Aged Cheddar

Feb. 17th, 2012 | Comments 0 | Make a Comment   
A true emperor in the food world, Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant empire ranges from elite, high-end dining to casual cuisine. With three separate Wolfgang Puck restaurateur entities that span the globe, countless accolades, television appearances, and cooking literature to his name, it is no wonder he is one of the most recognizable and influential chefs in the world today. This mini-prime cheese burger dish with remoulade and aged cheddar has been named among one of Wolfgang’s favorite recipes.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 pound ground Wagyu Snake River Farms beef
  • Pinch of Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces aged cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 6 slices Brioche bread, punched out with a 2-inch ring cutter
  • Remoulade Sauce (recipe follows)
  • Arugula leaves
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 cornichons, sliced
Procedure:
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan. Put the ground beef in a bowl and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper
  • Mix together with your hands to combine. Take a small amount (about 2 tablespoons worth) of the ground beef and roll it in the palm of your hand like you are making meatballs
  • Flatten the top slightly and put the mini burger patties on a side plate
  • Drizzle the burgers with oil and season the tops with salt and pepper
  • Turn the burgers over and season the other side
  • Place the burgers on the hot grill. Cook for 3 minutes, then turn them over with tongs
  • Put about 1/2 ounce of aged cheddar cheese on top of the burgers, allowing it to melt
  • While that’s cooking, put the brioche circles on the grill. Let them toast slightly on both sides, about 2 minutes total time
To put the burgers together:
  • Put the toasted brioche circles on a platter
  • Top each with a small spoonful of Remoulade
  • Put the burger on top (cheese side up), followed by an arugula leaf, a slice of tomato and a slice of cornichon
Remoulade Sauce: (recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 3/4 cup of brunoise of red onion
  • 1/2 cup of brunoise of red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup of brunoise of yellow bell pepper
Procedure:
  • In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, garlic, rosemary and paprika. Reduce by half
  • Allow to cool to room temperature. In a sauté pan, heat the peanut oil. Sweat the onions, red and yellow bell pepper until glossy
  • Transfer to a plate and allow to cool to room temperature
