Chimichurri Burger


What's there beside the burger? Well, duck fat potato chips, of course!

This post has to be pretty wordless, as we're in the process of moving.

For the burgers, we mixed ground beef with onions and celery (like our Philippine-style patties), seasoning with salt and pepper, of course. We made our own buns, like the ones we made before, except using some whole wheat flour this time.



We baked the buns, grilled the burgers, made chimichurri -- that magical combination of garlic, chiles, lemon, olive oil and parsley -- and last, but certainly not least, made some duck fat potato chips. (Like duck fat potato cubes, but this time in chip form. Woohoo.)

The burger didn't need anything more than lettuce and tomato (and some mayo) -- that chimichurri packs a lot of punch. Look at that olive oil oozing down the sides.

There you go, your simple burger and chips.

Before we end this post, we want to say thank you to NĂºria of Spanish Recipes for giving us the "I Love Your Blog" award. Thank you! Are you still giggling about chimichurri's pronunciation? =D


This meal is composed of:
Philippine-style Hamburger Patties
Whole Wheat Buns
Chimichurri
Duck Fat Potatoes

  3. Baked the buns?? Wow, you really did do everything from scratch. Sounds like a good combo of flavors. It's still rather warm burger weather around here in So Cal.

    Good luck w/ the move!

    Actually, I think it's because I've *just* realized now: "OMG! We're moving tomorrow!! AAAAAck." In other words, there was a lot of procrastination going on.
