|Z burgersPage 1 of 1 |
|Wanna add a little heat to you hamburger? Well, I have a self-found recipe that'll get your tastebuds dancing. |
Ingredients: Z hot sauce- this can be found at Jungle Jims. I haven't seen it at WalMart lol. I don't really know where else it's carried other than possibly the internet http://www.hotsauceworld.com/hsw1359zn.html rated at 4 million shu, it's probably the hottest sauce you can buy for $7-10. The #1 hottest being Blair's 16 million reserve with a price tag over $100. Good luck finding that anywhere.
McCormick Caribbean Jerk seasoning. Need something to add some flavor to the fire
Ground beef, of course. I use 80/20.
Cheese- I use sharp cheddar, but I wouldn't be afraid to bust out some provalone or pepper jack.
Condiments: You can have any of your basics, but I use a little bit of ketchup, mustard, and mayo on the top bun and spread Tostitos zesty bean and cheese dip on the bottom bun.
Directions: I would recommend wearing latex gloves for this one. That Z sauce stays on your hands and starts burning after a while. Take your ground beef and make a ball out of it and push a dip into the middle of the ball. Time for the Z sauce- put as many drops as you think you can take. 4 drops, you won't really taste the Z, 10 drops gives it a nice kick, or give it a bit more for that friend you like to pick on . Cover the top of the meatball in your hand with the caribbean jerk seasoning, making sure to get it on the Zsauce, close up the hole, and start kneading the burger meat. After the ingredients are mixed, cover the burger one more time all the way around in the seasoning and knead again. Flatten out your patty, cook to desired level of pink/brown and enjoy!
Try it out, lemme know what you think. I cooked for 4 people last night, one couldn't handle the Z burger without a drink- what a newbie

|Actually the Z sauce has Vinegar, Habanero Peppers, Pepper Extract, Tomatoes, Mustard, Papaya, Guava, Pineapple, Banana, Water, Sugar, Passion Fruit Juice, and Guava Juice making it one of the most flavorful hot sauces I've ever tasted- and strangely enough, the hottest.|
A buddy of mine bought the Mad Dog 357 collector's edition made with 6 million scoville pepper extract- locked in a case... well, we went to try it and... nothing but confusion. It's really only rated at 600k shu. Haven't tried the 44 magnum, but at $36 a bottle, I think I'll stick with the Z at 1/4 the price.
Now if you want a hot sauce with bad flavor, you should try Satan's Blood. Just at 800k shu it'll ruin any food you put too much into. You can see kids trying this sauce all over youtube.

|I just had it last night, dude (I was pretending to be Chef Ramsey- yelled at my friends to "GET THE f*** OUT MY KITCHEN!" . I said to put in whatever you think you can handle. So sue me if I like my hot sauce. I put more than 10 on my friend's burger as a joke, and he still ate (most of) it. You have to knead the meat to distribute the sauce, not just let 10 drops sit in the center and cook it. That'd be a waste of sauce. Don't think I'm telling the truth- try it yourself. I made 4/5 burgers the same, the 5th being seconds for my friend, and my joke. He actually asked for a little more Z sauce, so I gave him a lot more. |
The only way I can see this as bogus is if you're making whitecastle sized burgers. you might as well not even waste your time cooking them. I grab enough ground beef to make a ball bigger than a baseball, smaller than a softball. Too much and you don't cook the inside, too little, and you haven't got a meal. Pardon me for not having a postage scale in my inventory to give you exact measurements, but 10 drops is what I gave everyone, and I got the thumbs up. I tried 4 drops earlier this week, and it didn't give a lot of extra taste to the caribbean jerk seasoning. Between the amount of meat, the relatively small amount of Z sauce, the mayo, cheese, ketchup, mustard, and bean & cheese dip, you're really diluting that sauce but not enough to kill it's taste completely. I'd eat another one just as I've described any day of the week.

|I added more because I know he likes this sauce. puts 3-4 drops in his ramen noodles at lunch. It's pretty versatile in it's uses as a food additive. I use the Hatari Acid Rain Limited Edition for fried chicken- Pour a little bit over the pieces and chow down. Makes ya sweat, eyes water, but it's real good. Frostbite hot sauce isn't terrible either. I ate it with a burrito from Hot Head. It doesn't have the same effect as Acid Rain, just a standard hot sauce feel. I've tried a couple of varieties of Blair's- which I'm sure would be pretty good in hamburgers as well. I used their After Death sauce in some rice... Not bad. I will say this- I kinda wish I had some beer when I was cooking those Z burgers. Now that woulda been a spicy slice of heaven.|
