Need help to recreate

471 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  koukouvagia
I went to a brew pub that had an amazing burger that I would like to try to recreate it for friends.  It started with three different cuts of beef ground up to male the patty, white cheddar on the bottom of the patty and this custom sweet butter they made.  The pairing of the cheese and this sweet butter concoction (no, it wasn't just normal sweet butter) was amazing.  I asked what it was and they said it was made with their stout beer.  I'm looking for an idea of what I can do to try and replicate this - doesn't necessarily need to be made with the stout nbeer,but something to make this a really sweet butter to go with the cheddar.

While I tend to practice the philosophy of Koukovagia, I too am a replicator. In fact, at this moment I'm replicating one of Todd English's sauces. Mine are always good but rarely as great as the real thing. Best technique to get as lose as possible - ask the chef to share the recipe. It might take a lot of scaling for home quantities and experimentation, but better than dealing with vague suggestions and taste memories... Unless you have a "photographic" palate of course!
