make at home instructions a la Bateau

For Buns:

1. Preheat oven to the broiler setting

2. Slice bun open

3. Slather with tempered butter on both sides

4. Place in an oven-safe pan and set in oven to toast

5. Let rest while cooking burger.

For Patties:

1. Melt 1oz of butter for every lb. of beef (optional)

2. Pour butter (if using) over ground beef in mixing bowl, use a rubber spatula to lightly incorporate melted butter into ground beef

3. Form 8oz patty into ¾ inch thick patty (ideally you want to use a 3 ½ inch ring mold)

4. If time allows, make patties in advance and refrigerate for up to 2 days in advance/min of 2 hours (or 25 minutes in the freezer). You really want that patty to set!

5. Liberally salt and pepper patty

6. Cook in a cast iron pan on a grill outside. (If you cook inside: this creates a lot of smoke, so beware and turn your hood on if you have one.)

7. Sear on one side for 3-4 minutes

8. Flip and put a knob of butter on top of the patty

9. Sear other side for 3-4 minutes

10. Flip again, top with onion jam, cook for another 2-3 minutes, until internal temp reaches 100 degrees.

11. Transfer to a plate covered with a paper towel to rest to 115-120 degrees (just about 3-4 minutes)

12. Slather aioli on both sides of toasted bun

13. Place patty with onion jam between bun.

Bon appetit!
