5 Burgers You've Got to Have for National Burger Month
3. Gold Standard
Where: Holsteins, Las Vegas
The No. 2 seller on the Holsteins menu is the Gold Standard burger. For this burger Meidenbauer topped dry aged beef sirloin with smoked bacon, aged goat cheddar cheese, tomato confit, baby arugula and garlic-chive aioli.
"We wanted a great bacon cheeseburger, but not using same old same old toppings," Meidenbauer says.The foundation of the burger is a fabulous brioche bread, which Meidenbauer notes is "pretty much best kind of bread you can use for burger." To that he adds a top-notch applewood smoked bacon. "The bacon adds a really great intense smoke flavor. It's not a tiny afterthought -- we really wanted the bacon to stand out." And finally, they slow roast the tomatoes for about four hours.
