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!
