Bobcat Bite Slaw (from Hamburger America)

  • 1 small head white cabbage, core removed and finely shredded
  • 1/2 large green bell pepper, grated
  • 3.5 ounces caster sugar
  • 8 ounce white vinegar
  • 2 ounces flavourless oil, such as groundnut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 tablespoon mustard

Mix it all together. Keep in the fridge and give it a good stir before serving.

Assembly

Toast your buns. Gently fry your chiles in a healthy amount of butter (20g or so) and begin frying your burgers. Use a cast iron pan for this unless you have a proper hot plate. When you flip the burger, it’s time to put those chiles on followed by the cheese. Once the cheese has melted you are good to go. Put the burger in the bun and serve with the slaw.  Some folks put the slaw on the bottom of the burger.
