makes 4 burgers
- Ingredients -
1 lb venison or beef, cubed
1 sweet onion, half sliced and the other half diced
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Weston Black Pepper & Garlic Jerky Seasoning
8 oz mushrooms
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup white rice
1 ½ cup beef stock
¼ cup corn flour
1 sprig green onion, sliced
- Tools -
Weston Meat Grinder
Weston Burger Press
Step One | Prepare Burger Patties
Run the meat and the diced half of the onion through the coarse plate of your meat grinder, then run half of the resulting ground meat through the fine plate.
Mix the ground meat with Worcestershire sauce and Seasoning.
Use the Burger Press to press four ¼ lb patties. Store them in the refrigerator while you prepare the rest.
Step Two | Prepare Rice
Follow package directions or bring two cups of water to a boil. Pour in the rice, bring the water to a simmer and cover it. Simmer for 15-30 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave the lid on the pot for a few minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.
Step Three | Prepare Gravy
While the rice cooks, prepare the gravy. Saute the sliced onions and mushrooms in one tablespoon of butter until onions are translucent. Transfer the onions and mushrooms into a bowl and set aside. Reserve the juices in the pan. Add 1 cup of beef stock to the pan and bring to a boil. Dissolve the corn flour in the remaining ½ cup of beef stock. Once the beef stock is boiling, whisk in the corn flour. Sprinkle in pepper, to taste. Continue to whisk until the gravy is to your desired thickness. Reduce to low and stir in the grilled mushrooms and onions. Keep the gravy warm while you prepare the burgers - but keep an eye on it.
Step Four | Grill Burgers
Grill the burger patties to your preference.
Step Five | Fry Eggs
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Once the butter begins to foam, crack your eggs into the pan, being sure not to break the yolk. Cook to your preference.
Step Six | Assemble
Spoon rice onto a plate. Pour the gravy over the bed of rice, then place a burger on top. Top with a fried egg and sprinkle with green onions. Serve.
