Were you wondering what’s the most expensive burger in the world? The answer is FleurBurger with a price tag of: $5000!
This is the creation Hubert Keller which you’ll find in Vegas at the newly reopened and re branded restaurant known as Fleur. This tasty piece of culinary jewelry contains Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles and truffle sauce. It’s served on a brioche truffle bun.
In the price is also included a bottle of Chateau Petrus, the vintage 1995 to be exact which has a price tag of around $2,500 and I’m pretty sure the fries are also included.
For those of you that would like to try to recreate the FleurBurger 500 here’s the recipe:
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 cup brown Chicken Stock
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 lbs. coarsely ground beef
2 Tbsp. Madeira or port
4 Fleur Buns
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 oz. black Perigord truffle, very thinly sliced (about 5 slices per person)
8 to 10 oz duck foie gras
Fleur de sel
1 bunch watercress, washed and picked over.
