Wagyu Asian Burger -Glamping

Excuse my staging here. First off , I'm not a great stager but secondly, I'm currently camping so this glamorous burger didn't get a sexy photo shoot .  This is a must do burger at least once. It's a not a burger I would have tried in a restaurant, although in a high end restaurant this could be a $50.00 burger and be an easy fan favorite.
My son sells Wagyu beef, check him out at #Wallywagyu on Instagram. If you get an opportunity to try some Wagyu beef , I recommend you do. Maybe splurge for that anniversary or special birthday. 
From what I understand,  Wagyu cattle are  specifically hand massaged to help distributed the fat in their body. Beer is also incorporated into their diet, as it helps them stay relaxed. I believe they also include a daily dose of classical music. The result is a highly marbleized piece of meat. What's extraordinary is that when your finger touches the fat in the meat , the fat begins to melt. Crazy right? It makes for an amazing steak and of course an outstanding ground beef.
Let me tell you how I made these burgers.

First,  make your Wagyu beef patties and baste with a good teriyaki sauce. There are recipes to make your own but we used one we found at Sam's s Club.  

Mix up some Wasabi mayo. 

Wasabi Mayonnaise- serves 2-3
I tbl Wasabi
2 tbl mayonnaise
Mix and keep chilled.

 Asian Slaw- serves 2-3
Lemon -zested- approx 1/4 tsp

Thinly slice the carrots, radishes and cucumbers. You decide the ratio but figure you' ll need about 1.5 cups total of the slaw mix.
I shredded the carrots with a hand shredder. 
Mix it all together. Add dressing. Let sit 10 minutes in the frig.

Asian Slaw Dressing
2Tbl Olive Oil 
1 Tbl Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Soy Sauce
Optional - add a 1/2 Tsp Sesame Oil
 Dress the slaw and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 10 min. 
Grill burger, serve on bun, spread a layer of Wasabi mayonnaise and finally a generous amount of Asian Slaw. Every bite of this burger is a master piece. 
Thanks for popping in to read along.
With love and gratitude,


  1. The governor of New Mexico's first name is also Michelle and she also recommends Wagyu Beef, but of course NM taxpayers pay for hers, I think the bill ran about $500 for hamburgers for her party. (This is a true story)
