A Juicy John but bigger and better

FoodTribe, You all know I had to bring this burger back for this challenge. I am going to make a bold claim here. The original Juicy John burger was the first dish to be named after a FoodTriber. I will give 50 tribe coins to the person that proves me wrong, I think my coins are safe. Now lets get into this new and improved burger.

This burger is based on a Juicy Lucy style of burger, hence the name Juicy John. For this one I used a quarter pound ground sirloin beef patty that I flattened a little and started layering on the goodness.

I started with two slices of American cheese for that nice gooiness. Then a layer of thinly sliced chicken chorizo, followed by a layer of uncured Spanish chorizo, then topped with a slice of Swiss cheese. I am sorry I missed the photo with the Swiss on top. On top of all this went another quarter pound patty of ground sirloin. I sealed the edges of the two patties to make sure they would not leak and on the grill it went. I added a slice of American and Swiss cheese to melt on top.

As we all know John loves some Maccas special sauce from the Big Mac, so it was only fitting that a burger named after him should have a similar special sauce. So I mixed up some thousand island, mustard, pickle juice, garlic powder, onion powder and just a little cayenne.

We all know John loves some chorizo and eggs, so I thought this burger really needed a nice fried egg as well.

The buns were nice brioche buns toasted on the grill to near perfection. There is no way a soft bun could hold up to this kind of abuse.

Time to build

On the bottom bun goes some sliced onions, followed by the Juicy John burger patty and a few extra pieces of the Spanish chorizo with the fried egg sitting on top. On the top bun I spread on the special sauce. I tried adding lettuce but it was not working out well.

I must say this burger is not for the faint of heart but it is a great tasting burger for sure. Prepare to dislocate your jaw in order to get a proper bite though. This is the first burger I ever got proper cheese pull from, I wish I could have got a picture of that. Believe it or not this burger does not fall apart after the first bite either. I must admit, I could not finish eating it but I tried my best FoodTribe.

In conclusion you all this is a great burger named after a great guy that I have gotten to know over the last year and a bit.

Cheers to you Sir Juicy John Coleman!

  • A great tribute and a great burger! It sounds like you got all his favorites in there. The only unfortunate thing is that it would be ice cold by the time it got shipped out to him, and then he would have to microwave it. πŸ™„ Seriously, though, you did a fantastic job and it sounds like you had fun, too! 😊

    • Thank you so much!

      Yeah it would be a bit nasty by the time he would receive it, if it could get through Australian customs. I did have indeed, this one was more fun than the first one.

  • Looks delicious. Stick a few McDonald’s chicken nuggets in there and I think he’d swoon. πŸ˜‰
