Cooking With Match: Match Burger


In this week's feature article, I report on Match, a meat substitute created by Allison Burgess, a lifelong St. Louisan. If you'd like to try some, I'll be posting recipes here on Gut Check all week long.

Just in time for the Fourth, here's Clint Whittemore's Match burger. Whittemore is the executive chef at The Market at Busch's Grove.

1 pound Match Beef
1/2 of one poblano pepper, diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
juice and zest of 1 lime
1/8 pound (4 tablespoons) butter (or olive oil for vegan)

Mix all ingredients together and form into patties. Grill, broil, fry or however else you like to prepare your burger. Top with melted cheese.
