From humble beginnings to becoming comfort food for Malaysians, the classic Ramly burger is a common sight in Malaysian burger stalls and food trucks. These days, more gourmet options have hit the market, providing consumers with a wider range of options to satisfy their cravings for fluffy buns, juicy patties, and tantalising sauces.
Burgers can be an easy and cost-effective way to spice up a menu for your food service business as additions to a kiddie menu or as an entrée — or even as a seasonal special.
Here’s a collection of burger recipes to inspire your menu:
1. The Classic Malaysian Street Burger
Speaking of the classics, simple is best! Nothing quite hits the spot like the basics. Season your patty with AJI-SHIO® Flavoured Pepper and Black Pepper to bring out the flavours of meat, and cap it off with your preference of sauce and a perfectly toasted bun. Perfect as a midnight snack to stave off cravings, or as a quick bite on the go. The Classic Malaysian Street Burger can easily be crowned as the crowd favorite, so be sure to not miss it out.
For a twist on the classic, swap things up with onion jam! Don’t know what onion jam is? We’ve got you covered with this recipe. A combination of AJI-SHIO® Flavoured Black Pepper, caramelised onions, and vinegar helps create a bitter-sweet onion jam that balances out a meatier patty, giving you texture and flavour between each bite. Perfect for customers who are seeking for something fancier to brighten up their weekday meal.
Not a fan of too much onion? We still have you covered. Dial back on the onion, and sautée some button mushrooms. Did you know that cooked mushrooms are umami-rich? That’s why they go well with AJI-SHIO® Flavoured Black Pepper instead, and you can even add a dash of balsamic vinegar to your sauteed mushrooms!
Fried mushrooms add crunchy texture to a burger besides lettuce. Similar to the above recipe, the mushrooms are prepared separately from the rest of the burger before combining. Frying the mushrooms adds crunch and umaminess to the recipe to perfectly layer your chicken burger. Great even as a side! Try it out with this recipe.
Pineapple on pizza is divisive, but pineapple on burger might be just the thing you need to liven up a burger menu. As most burgers trend savoury or cheesy, adding a generous slice of pineapple to the layers of your burger gives it a juicier punch, while balancing out the savoury taste with sourish notes. Use AJI-SHIO® Flavoured Pepper to season your grilled pineapple slice after it starts browning.
6. Homemade Beef Burger with Special Pepper Brown Sauce
Take on a challenge, and go beyond the basics with a homemade patty and special sauce! This recipe is sure to make your burger stall stand out from the rest. You could improvise further by adding sautéed onions, mushrooms, or cheese. Give your culinary skill and creativity a chance to shine with this recipe!
