Marty Shanahan - The Backyard Cook

We all love a good burger, but sometimes you can get carried away with mountains of fillings and sauces. In my humble opinion, a great burger comes down to three elements: the patty, the sauce and the bun. Get these right and everything else falls into place. For the patty, it has to be a 50/50 blend of freshly ground sirloin and brisket. Nothing less than a toasted soft brioche bun will do, and the coup de grâce is my irresistible, not-so-secret sauce cascading over the beautifully charred patty. Now, stop drooling and go make this bad boy.
