A burger that packs all the flavours of Brazil into one sensational mouthful. Smoky chimichurri relish, cumin-spiced onion rings, peri peri bacon, and creamy lime and avocado mayo make this one hell of a burger.
It requires a bit of extra effort but I can guarantee it'll be worth it.
Peri Peri sauce, 3-4 tbsp
Brown sugar, 1 tbsp
Steaky bacon, 12 slices
Woods Traditional Burgers, 8 patties (or however many burgers you want)
Emmental cheese, 16 slices
Buns of your choice, 8
Smoky Chimichurri Relish
1 red chilli, finely chopped
Smoked paprika, 1 tsp
1/2 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 a bunch of flat leaf parsely, finely chopped
Handful of oregano leaves, chopped
1 gherkin, chopped
Red wine vinegar, 1 tbsp
Creamy Lime and Avocado Mayo
Mayo, 4 tbsp
Small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 avocado, stoned and sliced
Sweet and Sour Pickled Pink Onions
Brown sugar, 1 tbsp
Red wine vinegar, 2 tbsp
2 red onions, cut into rings
Cumin-Spiced Onion Rings
Cornflour, 1 tsp
Plain flour, 100g
Ground cumin, 1 tsp
Soda water, chilled
Mild chilli powder, 1 tsp
2 onions, peeled
First make the chimichurri. Mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor/blender, adding enough olive oil to make a spoonable relish.
Then make the mayo. Again, mix all of the ingredients for the mayo into a blender.
To make the sweet and sour onions mix everthing together and leave to mariante.
For the bacon, mix the peri peri sauce with brown sugar. Then brush over the bacon and grill until crispy. Keep warm in the oven whilst you make everything else.
To make the onion rings, whisk the cornflour, flour, spices, soda water and salt together to make a thick batter that will coat the onions.
Slice the onions into 1cm rounds and put into a bowl. Pour boiling water over the rings and stir. Drain and dry. Fill a pan with a 1/3 of oil and put over medium heat.
Dip the onion rings in the batter, then drop them into the oil and fry until crisp. Keep warm in the oven whilst you cook the burgers.
Cook your burgers on the barbecue.
Build your burgers. Spread the bottom of your bun with the avocado mayo. Place your lettuce and then the first patty and cheese. Add your bacon, sweet onions, chimichurri then another patty. Top with onion rings and some more avocado mayo.
Get blown away by the flavour sensation.
