This ain’t no ordinary burger. Although it might look as such from the exterior, keep your eye on the moistness of that patty. Look how plump it is. Yep, by cooking the beef sous vide we’ve allowed it to retain all its moisture. None of that squashing the burger against the grill to cook it faster, in turn squeezing tons of the moisture out of it, which is released as steam. This burger is cooked through, though it’s very, very juicy.

Ingredients for 2

  • 2 (6-ounce) wagyu beef patties

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 red onion, coarsely chopped

  • 2 deli slices Gruyère cheese

  • 2 burger buns

  • Sauce of your choice (peri peri, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc.)

Directions

  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 143ºF (62ºC).

  • Step 2

    Season the patties with salt and pepper. Place each burger in its own quart-size zipper lock bag and seal using the water immersion technique. Place the bags in the water bath and set the timer for 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    While the burgers are cooking, sauté the onions: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the onion. Cook until translucent and starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

  • Step 4

    When the timer reaches about 5 minutes, heat the broiler to high.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      When the timer goes off, remove the bags from the water bath. Remove the burgers from the bags and pat very dry with paper towels.

    • Step 2

      Heat the remaining tablespoon olive oil in the medium skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the burgers and sear until well-browned on both sides, about 1 minute per side.

    • Step 3

      Transfer to a broiler pan and top with cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 1 to 3 minutes.

    • Step 4

      Transfer the burgers to buns and top with sautéed onion and sauce of your choice. Serve.
