Wagyu Beef Burger, Pickled Vegetables

Wagyu Beef Burger, Pickled Vegetables

Serves 4
This is classic café fare, the Bitton version of the humble hamburger. The must-have ingredient for this dish is the pickled vegetables, they really shine with the sharp flavour balanced against the rich taste of the wagyu. It is always a sell-out on the menu.

Serves 4


  • 4 x wagyu beef burgers (available from good butchers)
  • 100 g button mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons Bitton Lemon Dressing or French vinaigrette
  • 4 x Turkish rolls
  • 4 tablespoons good quality egg mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons pickled vegetables of your choice


Preheat oven to 220°C (428°F).

Place a non-stick frying pan over high heat and smear the surface with vegetable oil. Sear the beef burgers on both sides until brown. Remove from pan and place on a lined baking tray and cook in the oven for about 3 minutes or until cooked through.

In a small bowl, place the sliced mushrooms and tomatoes and toss with Bitton Lemon Dressing or French vinaigrette. Cut the Turkish rolls in half and spread each half with mayonnaise.

Add 1 tablespoon of pickled vegetables. Top with beef burger and salad and place the top of the roll. Place each burger on a serving plate alongside a green salad.
