  • Summary

    Competition for the best burger in London has gone mad. Some burgers are gourmet and piled high with toppings, whereas others are thinner, simpler, wrapped in paper, steamy and sloppy. All I can say is my insanity burger is going to be right up there—the method is almost ritualistic in what it requires you to do to get close to burger perfection. I've also used the brilliant technique of brushing the burgers with mustard and a dash of Tabasco Chipotle sauce as they cook to build up an incredible gnarly layer of seasoning.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 lbs ground chuck steak
    • Olive oil
    • 1 large red onion
    • 1 splash of white wine vinegar
    • 2 large gherkins
    • 4 sesame-topped brioche burger buns
    • 4–8 slices of smoked bacon
    • 4 teaspoons yellow mustard
    • Tabasco Chipotle sauce
    • 4 thin slices of Red Leicester cheese
    • 4 teaspoons tomato ketchup
    • 1/4 of an iceberg lettuce
    • 2 heaping tablespoons mayo
    • 1 heaping tablespoon tomato ketchup
    • 1 teaspoon Tabasco Chipotle sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • optional: 1 teaspoon brandy or bourbon
