A note about serious food allergies

Brau haus translates to brewery or “brew house” which is probably self-evident. What's also self-evident is that a burger with a beer cheese sauce is delicious as can be. And what is German for crispy, yummy fries on the side? Never mind, languages were never our strong suit. Coming up with yummy burgers for you to feast on? That's our starker Anzug.

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming 4 patties and stacking 2 to serve.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes

    Quarter potatoes. Cut into 1/4" wedges and pat dry.

    Place potato wedges on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage olive oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until golden-brown and tender, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    While potatoes roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Patties and Garlic Crème Fraîche

    In a mixing bowl, combine garlic aioli, crème fraîche, a pinch of salt, and 1 Tbsp. water. Set aside.

    In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form into two evenly-sized patties, about 1/2" thick.

  3. 3

    Cook the Patties

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.

    Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer patties to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Toast the Rolls

    Place rolls directly on rack in hot oven and toast until golden-brown, 3-4 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven and set aside.

  5. 5

    Make Pub Cheese Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook patties to medium heat.

    Add cream cheese and 1/3 cup water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, whisk or stir vigorously until cream cheese melts and is mostly smooth, 30-60 seconds.

    Add mustard, shredded cheese, and a pinch of salt. Whisk or stir vigorously until combined, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom roll with burger, sauce, crispy onions, arugula, and top roll. Serve garlic crème fraîche on the side for dipping fries. Bon appétit!
