T-bone steak and salsa burger

Tonight’s meal creation was extremely delicious. Yes, extreme is an extreme word and should only be used on extreme occasions but I rated this burger 9.8 out of 10 so it deserves a superlative descriptor.

T-bone steak and salsa burger

The parts of this feast:

  • T-bone steak briefly marinated in black pepper, salt, sumac and olive oil; grilled medium rare in the Weber Baby Q and then allowed to rest in a warm oven
  • Lepinja bread fresh from the local Balkan bakery cut in half; leftover spicy salsa spread on the base and tulum (a crumbly dry Turkish cheese) with nigella seeds sprinkled on the top half; placed in a moderate oven to add a crunchy texture to the bread
  • Fresh basil, parsley and spring onion straight from the courtyard garden, chopped finely
  • Grape tomatoes halved
  • Ripe avocado flesh squashed on the salsa base

The bread provided both crunchy and squishy textures and all ingredients complemented each other perfectly. Yum!
