Bob’s Burgers Review: Wasabi With You

It’s Sunday morning, and that can only mean one thing: last night, I made and ate a hamburger. Specifically, a burger featured on the hit series, Bob’s Burgers.

Wasabi With You? [S8:E12 “The Hurt Soccer”]

About the Episode

After forgetting that they signed up Louise for a soccer league, Bob must help her prepare to play in the season’s last game . . . by coaching the never-won-a-game team.

Back at the restaurant, Linda and Gene realize their dream of turning the restaurant into a piano bar.

About the Burger

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons wasabi powder
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons ancho chili pepper
  • 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic per pound of meat.
  • Grated Cheddar cheese (garlic & chive if available)

Directions

  • Mix the dry ingredients well.
  • Break up the meat in a large bowl.
  • Add 6.5 teaspoons of seasoning mix per pound of meat; recipe makes enough for about two pounds.
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic per pound of meat.
  • Mix Well
  • Form into patties and grill as normal
  • Add cheddar cheese in the final minute or so and allow to melt.
  • Serve on a bun with condiments of choice (I used spring mix greens and mayo)

The Response

We thought this burger had a good heat, but beware: the first bite can pack an unexpected punch. We also thought the burger needed something sweet to counteract the spice, perhaps a chutney of some kind.

We ate this burger while spending time with our cousin Alex and all of us independently gave this burger

4 Stars


Come back next week when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
