  1. BBQ sauce

    Fry the tomato, paprika, pepperoni, onions, and garlic together with the rosemary in olive oil.

    Season to taste with smoked salt, table salt, pepper, Tabasco, and a little soy sauce.

    Next, combine with the tomato salsa.

  2. Mustard mayo

    Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

    Pour into a spray bottle and chill.

  3. Red wine onions

    Sweat the onions in butter and deglaze with red wine.

    Make sure the liquid covers the onions. Next, reduce the liquid until both bottles of red wine have been added and simmered down.

    Finally, add a little veal jus and some aged balsamic vinegar.

    Season with salt and pepper.

  4. To serve the burger

    Fry the approx. 150g burger patties in a griddle pan until cooked to your liking.

    Important: After frying, give the meat time to rest. Leave to rest for five to ten minutes at 70°C in the oven with the door ajar.

    While the meat is resting, place a slice of “Der scharfe Maxx” cheese onto each patty.

    Slice open the burger buns and lightly toast them on the griddle pan. Next, spread the BBQ sauce over both halves of the bun.

    Place the lettuce on the lower bun, then lay the burger patty on top.

    Spoon 1 tbsp. of the red wine onions onto the patty.

    Lay 1 slice of fried bacon on top of this.

    Drizzle over the mustard mayo and top with the other half of the bun.
