And, if you order the legendary burger anywhere in the world you should get exactly the same thing with the same taste which is pretty good going since they’re not shipped in pre-packed and frozen.
According to chef Rolly, the secret’s in the beef. None of this extra lean stuff will do, it has to be 20 per cent fat to 80 per cent beef, that’s what gives it that awesome flavour.
Rolly’s been following one supplier from company to company over the years but you can get a similar effect with good quality beef from the supermarket – at Hard Rock they mince their own, twice, but you can buy ready minced – let’s face it, how many of us have a mincer at home?
The legendary burger comes out at 180 grammes of beef (that’s 10 ounces) and chef Rolly says, if the meat’s good quality, it will mold itself.
And unbelievably, that’s it!
Obviously there’s the topping and the seasoning, and we’ll get to those in a minute, but to get that great burger, it seems there’s nothing more to it than good meat. There’s no beaten egg or any other suspect substance to hold it together, no adding in herbs and spices, oil or any other fats. It’s just meat pure and simple. Who knew?
Apparently the ultimate burger should be five inches in diameter, so it perfectly fits the burger bun, so you’ll need to make it slightly bigger to account for shrinkage in cooking.
Then to get that authentic Hard Rock taste you’ll need to add lettuce, sliced tomato, seasoned bacon of your choice, two slices of cheddar cheese, pickles and top it off with a crispy fried onion ring. Trust us, your barbie guests will thank you. Call (17 291 569).
Don’t fancy the beef feast? Go all out with the veggie leggie It’s a legendary egg plant patty topped with grilled Portabello mushroom, zucchini, yellow squash and roasted red pepper and served on a toasted bun with lemon mayo, lettuce, sliced tomato and grilled sweet onion.
The island’s most expensive burger If you really want to push the boat out you could go for the Wow burger experience at Plums at the Ritz-Carlton.
At BD38, we’re not sure if the ‘wow’ is about the quality of the burger (which we’re told is truly excellent) or the price but with 300 grammes of Wagyu beef and pan-seared duck foie gras topped with red berry sauce, caramelised red onion and porcini mushroom compote, this is truly a burger to be reckoned with – and possibly a heart attack on a plate.
