  • 3 Tbl. butter
  • 5 onions, 4 thinly sliced and 1 peeled
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground thyme
  • 1 cup beef consomme
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 lbs. ground beef sirloin
  • 1/4 About 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce (eyeball it)
  • A handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • 6 brioche buns, split
  • 36 good quality ridged or thick cut potato chips (cooked in olive oil)
  • sliced sweet pickles



Step 1

Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and bay leaf; season with salt, pepper and the thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until deep caramel and very soft, 35 minutes. De glaze with the beef consomme; cook until all the liquid is absorbed. Let cool, then discard the bay leaf. Stir in the sour cream.

Preheat a griddle or large cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Season the beef with the Worcestershire, salt (for a crusty coating) and pepper. Using a box grater, grate 3 to 4 Tbl. of the peeled onion over the meat (this flavors the meat and keeps the burgers moist), Add the parsley. Mix the meat (don't overwork) and form 6 patties thinner at the center than at the edges. Drizzle with olive oil. Cook, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes for pink centers.

Serve the burgers on the buns, topped with the sauce, potato chips and pickles.
