Saveur magazine has a special issue on the stands that focuses on everything burger, and while they offered up some delicious looking versions to choose from including a lamb burger, a pimento cheeseburger and a patty melt, one burger got me hook, line and barbee…I’ll stop with the Australian-themed lame lines now.
This Aussie Burger right here dear readers has everything I love dearly such as: eggs, beets, pineapple, tomato, cheese and well it IS a burger. There’s an article in the magazine that gives the backstory to this Australian-style burger that has found a home here in the United States at Sheep Station pub in New York City. Saveur Managing Editor Georgia Freedman sums up this burger to perfection: In addition to the usual toppings of lettuce and tomato, this sandwich was stacked high with pickled beets, grilled pineapple slices, and perfectly fried egg whose yolk was already dripping down the burger’s sides by the time it arrived. I grabbed hold and gave it my biggest bite; heavenly. The earthy, tangy beets, the syrupy-sweet pineapple, the juicy beef – all of it was bound together by the decadent egg yolk.
So, all that Georgia said plus an enthusiastic “Hallelujah for this burger!” from yours truly. This is one of the most unique and delicious burgers I have ever tested!
