Donkey sauce I hear you ask? What thoughts are going through your mind? I first heard of donkey sauce from Lauren who is a host on my favourite NSFW podcast, Mouthy Broadcast. At first, I was too scared to look it up in Google. I assumed I might need an incognito window. It turns out, it’s a real thing. I’ve described it more in the FAQ.
I made beef brisket brioche burgers with the donkey sauce. It was pretty amazing. The beef brisket was leftover from last Sunday.
- 1/8 cup minced garlic (store bought)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (store bought)
- 2 splashes Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon American mustard (do Americans call it American mustard?)
- 2 pinches sea salt (what is kosher salt anyway)
- 2 pinches ground black pepper
- 2 pinches chilli flakes (this is my Yummy Lummy variation)
- 250 g Beef brisket (frozen vacuum sealed)
- 2 Brioche buns
- Lettuce (shredded)
- Tomato (sliced)
- Coon Cheese (slices)
The day before (or if you’re not a Vulcan, go back in time) remove the brisket from the freezer and slowly thaw in the refrigerator.
Place the brisket (still in the vacuum sealed bag) in a sauce of cold water and bring up to 70°C for 45 minutes.
Make the donkey sauce by mixing the garlic, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and chilli flakes until it is a smooth sauce using a whisk. If you like, you could leave it gloopy and a little sticky by just using your hands.
Unseal the brisket and cut to the thickness you desire. If you like you could make a meat mountain.
Construct a burger or sandwich as you normally would.
Shoot a photograph and eat the burgers. In an ideal world, I would have served these with potato gems (tater tots for my American friends).
Wash the dishes and ponder the meaning of life.
Write the recipe and then write a blog post wondering if search engine optimisation is really all that important, after all “content is king”.
Hope that friends on social media and even perhaps the hosts from Mouthy Broadcast will share this on their social channels to make donkey sauce even bigger than it already is and to add more “in your end o” and double entendre to this post. After all, when I first heard Lauren mention donkey sauce my mind wasn’t on mayonnaise as she described oozing from her mouth onto her chest.
These tidy little burgers should keep you happy. Just be careful about spilling sauce over your hands, down your forearms and across your chest as the donkey sauce oozes out of your mouth.
