Ramadan Kareem! Your box has arrived so let's get started on how best to prepare it. Check all the contents listed below are included and get cracking
Contents (based on a box for 4)
- 8 Palestinian dates (chocolate coated if you upgraded)
- 4 x brioche buns
- 4 x cheese slices
- 4 x Wagyu Burger patties
- Burger sauce
- 4 x chocolate fondants
- Please place the burger patties, cheese slices, burger sauce and chocolate fondant cake in the fridge immediately. The burger patties can be kept in the fridge for a maximum of 48hrs. The chocolate fondant can last for up to 5 days as can the cheese. If you intend to prepare your wagyu burger box after this, please place the items in the freezer immediately upon receipt in order to maintain freshness.
- The dates, gherkins and buns should be stored in a cool dark place.
Now Let's get this meal ready.
What Do I Need?
- A heavy bottomed or cast iron pan.
- A drop or 2 of oil (or beef tallow is even better).
- Salt, Pepper.
- Brioche bun
- Cheese Slices
- A Sauce
- Optional: red onions, chopped and fried white onions, beef tomato slice.
Toast your Brioche Buns
- The best advice is to butter and toast your buns before you start cooking your wagyu patties. Simply spread a thin layer of soft butter across the surface of each bun and toast under a hot oven grill, or on a hot pan.
- Spread a liberal layer of your burger sauce on your buns and put aside.
Cook your Wagyu Patties!
We like our burgers just slightly under medium - ie cooked through to the centre but retaining a nice pink colour and super juicy. So follow this guide which has a total cooking time of 9 minutes. If you prefer medium to medium well, add an additional 1 minute cooking time.
Step 1: Remove the burger patties from the packaging. If they were frozen, defrost in the fridge first overnight.
Step 2: Bring the pan up to a very high heat (try sprinkling a few drops of water, they should bounce off the pan and sizzle). Add a couple of drops of oil. Once the oil starts to smoke, reduce the heat by a notch or two. You're good to get cooking.
Step 3: Get your timer ready! Remove the burger from the packaging. Season one side liberally with coarse salt and some pepper. Add the seasoned side face down on to the pan.
Let the burger patty sit for 4 minutes. Don't move it! Season the top side with some salt and pepper.
Step 4: Flip the burger, you should have a gorgeous crust. Let it cook for another 4-5mins. If you want it cooked beyond medium rare, flip the burger after the 4mins and continue cooking for another minute.
Cheese: We like to add the cheese before the last couple of minutes are up so it melts over the patty. If you happen to have a burger cloche, it's the time to use it.
Final Step: Remove the burger from the pan and let it rest! It's tempting to dive straight in but it is paramount you let the burger rest for 6 - 8 minutes, either on a board or warm plate. This will ensure that the juices get re-absorbed leaving you with a perfect burger to enjoy.
We give you a lot of artistic licence here. Make it your own! We like to keep it simple with sauce, melted cheese and pickles or with a bottom layer of shredded crisp romaine lettuce, then the cheese covered Wagyu patty, pickle and sauce.

Dessert - The Indulgent Finish
- For a hot gooey fondant, remove from the packaging and place in the oven at 180℃ for 16 mins. Or do it quicker in the microwave at 750W for 45 seconds. Pair with Ice Cream or Berries
