Turning cabbage into coleslaw
Coleslaw is the American classic amongst the burger sides. First, get rid off the outer layers of the red and white cabbage and then cut both of them into quarters. Make sure to cut out the tough core as well. Depending on your appetite and size of the cabbages, you might not need all of it. Halve the cabbage quarters once again and slice them into shreds.
Peel and shred the carrots before you put them into a bowl together with the cabbage. Add mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, brown sugar, lemon juice, salt, pepper and toss it all together. Cover the bowl and let it chill in the fridge for at least two hours. The coleslaw gets even more creamy if you let it rest in the fridge overnight.
It’s burger time! Prepare the ingredients
Take the beef patties out of the fridge. Slice tomatoes and onions into rings and wash the green salad. Don’t forget your pickles!
Be the burger king
Fire up the O.F.B.: Preheat the grill onto 1500°F/900°C for three minutes. Then place the patties on the grill grate, which you set on Meat-O-Meater stage 3. Grill them at a high temperature for about two minutes until the upper side is nicely browned. Then, flip the patties. After 90 seconds take the grill grate out to put cheddar and bacon on the patties. As soon as the cheese has melted, take everything off the grill. A thick 0.3 lbs./150 g patty will still be a little pink on the inside. Give the bacon another 20 seconds if you like it super crispy.
The Tower of Babel. Build up your burger
No worries – to build up your burger you don’t need a degree in advanced architecture. You can basically just pile it all up as you wish. Usually the patties go in the middle and if you don’t want the buns to soak all the fats and sauces, cover them with lettuce. Once you piled everything up, use a skewer to stabilize the tower. And now: enjoy your XXL- Burger!
