Smoked Paprika Burgers, the Gordon Ramsay Way!
Burgers and fries don't need to be an indulgence or have an ordinary flavour. With some thought and careful ingredient selction - like putting smoked paprika in the burger patties - they can be healthy and delicious.
On his show, The F Word, Gordon Ramsay shared a recipe for homemade beef burgers with beet relish and potato wedges. Have a look at the video below, but keep in mind the different English usage: “chips” are fries; “baps” are buns; we know “beetroot” as just beets, and “quid” is slang for pounds or about three dollars each. Or so we’re told.
The main idea is that by emphasizing flavourful seasoning the burgers don’t have to depend on just beef fat and salt for their flavourful. It’s also an interesting change from the regular routine.
The beet relish adds vibrant colour and is a way to sneak vegetables (and more bright flavour) into a dish that usually doesn’t have much of either.
Below is our adaptation of the recipe featuring La Chinata smoked paprika in the burger patties. This amount should feed 4 to 6 people.
