Gourmet Wagyu Burgers With Sesame Miso Aioli Recipe

By: Andrea Alden

When working with Wagyu, it is important to allow the beef to speak for itself. Every meal that I make with Canadian Wagyu Beef from Chophouse Steaks ensures that I don’t forget it. You’ve never tasted beef until you’ve tried Wagyu. When you add a delicious gourmet bun like the COBS Gourmet Herb & Garlic Hamburger Bun, the only thing you want to do is ensure that all the parts come together into a cohesive whole. Grilling a Wagyu Burger is much like grilling a burger that you ground yourself, with the perfect balance of fat to lean meat, these burgers require a little extra attention on the grill. Flavoring should be kept to a minimum, instead opting to enhance what’s already there with a creamy, Asian-inspired aioli – which also makes the perfect dip for some sweet potato fries too.

Ingredients

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

6

Brant Lake Wagyu Ground Beef Patties

3 to 6

COBS Bread Gourmet Herb & Garlic Hamburger Buns

2 tbsp.

 

butter


Sesame Miso Aioli:

1½ tsp. 

miso paste

2 tsp.

sesame oil

1 tbsp.

lime juice

1 clove

garlic, grated

3 tsp.

soy sauce

2 tbsp.

sour cream

6 tbsp.

mayonnaise

Directions
  1. Completely thaw the Wagyu Burgers in the refrigerator for at least 24 to 48 hours. 
  2. Preheat two burners on the grill to 400°F, preparing to use both direct and indirect heat. 
  3. While the grill is warming, whisk together the miso paste, sesame oil, lime juice, garlic, soy sauce, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Allow resting in the fridge until ready to serve.
  4. Season the Wagyu Beef patties with salt and pepper. Slice and butter the buns.
  5. Grill the burgers over direct heat on one side for at least 2 minutes, then flip and grill on the other side for 2 more – until delicious grill marks form on both sides. 
  6. Move the burgers to indirect heat to finish cooking. When they’re nearly done, grill the buns over direct heat until grill marks form.
  7. Serve the burgers single or double-decker, on the toasted COBS Gourmet Herb & Garlic Hamburger Buns with a smearing of sesame miso aioli and a couple of your favorite toppings. Don’t forget to add some sweet potato fries to the side and enjoy dipping in even more aioli.
