On Fox.com today, the Executive Chef of McDonald's offered a video presentation of how to duplicate their signature burger, the Big Mac. I am not a huge fan of the Big Mac but Michael loves them minus the pickles. It got my attention and I decided to give it a try. Honestly, between shopping for ingredients, making the secret sauce, chopping onions and lettuce, shaping incredibly thin beef patties, cutting and toasting the buns, grilling the meat, assembling the burgers, I worked on the Big Macs all day! I wasn't non-stop but it was time consuming. The result? A burger which very closely duplicates the taste of the famous Big Mac! Michael said the sauce was spot on. I even liked it and I usually avoid secret sauce on hamburgers. To be honest I enjoyed the cooking but probably will get Michael's next Big Mac at the drive-thru window. You can view the video HERE. I am not going to post a recipe because there really isn't one.
Here's the list of ingredients for the sauce:
- Sweet pickle relish
- Yellow mustard
- White wine vinegar
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
You can get an idea of the amounts by watching the video. Here's my Big Mac and Fries. Yum.
