This just in, from the “you must be kidding “files –
A deep fried curry burger on an artisan roll with fresh lettuce, sautÃ©ed onions, and a squirt of 53VG barbecue sauce.
Yes, it turns out you can indeed deep fry a hamburger. There is no need for flour or breading.
You thaw you custom seasoned 8oz hamburger and when the fry oil is 375-385F, you carefully lower it into the oil. Keep the temp above 350F for 5-7 minutes. You get a burger which is crunchy on the outside and medium done on the inside.
I recommend you serve it immediately or the burger will start to lose its crunch.
