Ground American wagyu beef, 1 pound

Yellow onion, 1x

Unsalted butter, 4 tablespoons

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. Wash the potatoes and slice into steak fries. Toss with half of the canola oil and a sprinkle of Balinese True Salt.
  3. Spray the foil-lined sheet trays with pan spray and spread the potato slices evenly onto the trays. Place in the oven and rotate every 15 minutes until GBD (Golden Brown & Delicious), about 45 minutes in total.

How to cook

  1. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter.
  2. Add the onions and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until caramelized.
  3. Add the Truffle Gastrique, season with Balinese True Salt and turn the heat to medium. Allow to cook over medium heat until jammy.
  4. In another large saute pan, heat the remaining canola oil.
  5. When the oil begins to smoke, season the burger patties with Balinese True Salt and add them to the pan. Continue to cook over medium-high heat, flipping from time to time, until medium rare, about 5 minutes.
  6. Top the patties with the grated cheese, turn the heat to medium, and cover.
  7. Allow the burgers to cook, covered, until the cheese has melted, about 30 seconds.
  8. Remove the lid and transfer the patties to a cutting board.
  9. Return the clean pan to medium heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add buns and toast until GBD.
  10. Remove the steak fries from the oven and season with Balinese True Salt.
  11. Build the burger, add the caramelized onions, cover with BBQ sauce and devour, alongside your crispy True Fries!
