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.
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!
