Nepenthe's Famous Ambrosia Burger

Recipe by Sharon123
READY IN: 20mins




  • Form the meat into four six-ounce balls, and roll in your hand to form together. Lay the balls on a clean flat surface and press flat. The edges of the patties should be cracked and broken, not perfectly smooth. This really enhances flavor.
  • The patties must be cooked on a hot open brazier, either over medium hot coals or open gas flame. Turn the burger only once, immediately when you see blood rise to the top. When you see clear juice rise on the cooked side, you've got a perfect medium rare.
  • At the last possible minute add cheese, as this slows down cooking time.
  • Mix the ingredients fresh for your Ambrosia Sauce. It is very simple, but what a great flavor it adds to your burger.
  • Butter the buns before you toast them. When you turn your burgers, toast the buns over the open flame next to your burgers.
  • Have fresh lettuce, sliced tomato, onion and thin slices cheddar cheese near by on a plate. Serve and enjoy!
