The Churchill Burger
Recipe makes one burger
7 oz ground beef (the restaurant uses grass-fed beef from Paso Prime)
1 slice of Tillamook smoked cheddar cheese
2 oz dolce onions (recipe below)
malt vinegar aioli (recipe below)
2 sprigs of fresh thyme, bundled
3 tbsp olive oil blend
3 tbsp butter, unsalted
1 large yellow onion julienned
kosher salt, to taste
3 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp pickled mustard seeds
In a large pan heat the butter, oil and thyme over medium heat to extract the flavor of the thyme
Add the onions, salt and pepper - stir well
Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring often, to caramelize the onions until they are extremely tender
Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan; cook for about 5 minutes; add the mustard seed and remove from the heat
Let cool before serving
Malt Vinegar Aioli
2 egg yolks
1 large garlic clove, smashed
1/3 cup malt vinegar
2 cups oil
kosher salt, to taste
In a food processor, combine all ingredients, except for the oil; blend to chop the garlic and until a little frothy
Continue to chop, while adding the oil, very slowly, to emulsify
Taste and adjust seasoning
Refrigerate until ready for use
