As Jon and I are fairly new Minneapolis transplants, I felt like this Juicy Lucy Burger had to be one of the first recipes we put up on our “fancy”new website. Beats Your Meat is all about divulging in the greasy bar foods and butter soaked Sunday dinners we grew up eating. For better or worse, Juicy Lucy Burgers are a heart attack waiting to happen.
Juicy Lucy Burgers originated in Minneapolis. As far as I can tell, the exact origin is disputed, but I can assure you this originated somewhere around here because is the most Midwestern food I’ve ever eaten. This burger has been bastardized to death since its inception, so I figured why not add to the chaos?
So I guess you’re wondering how we made this vegetarian. I think you would be hard pressed to make this meal without Beyond Meat. The Beyond Burger’s similarities to actual raw ground beef gave us the ability to mold the “beef” around the cheese just like the meat eaters make these monstrosities. The result is pretty astounding…
We paired our Juicy Lucy Burger with a super simple red cabbage slaw and a garlic aioli (just to add some more calories on there). I usually like my burgers super basic – lettuce, tomato, ketchup, etc. This time I wanted to try something that would resemble like… an overpriced burger you’d buy at a fancy pub. Guys… I REALLY nailed it. It tastes even better though, knowing I didn’t pay $20 for it.
