Wagyu Beef Burger with Pickled Vegetables
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.
4 x wagyu beef burgers (available from
100 g button mushrooms, sliced thinly
8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
3 tablespoons Bitton Lemon Dressing
or French vinaigrette

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

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.

Add 1 tablespoon of pickled vegetables. Top with beef burger and salad
