Binging with Babish: Big Kahuna Burger from Pulp Fiction

  • Added:  7 months ago
  • The Big Kahuna Burger is one of the countless themes running throughout numerous Tarantino films, almost as prevalent as revenge, lurid violence, and racial epithets. After this double-stacked caramelized-pineapple-and-onion Hawaiian smash-burger, you're gonna need a Red Apple cigarette.

    Music: "Cream on Chrome" by Ratatat

    (smashburger method courtesy of Serious Eats)


    -1 red onion, sliced into rings
    -2 tbsp butter, divided
    -3 thin pineapple slices
    -1 tbsp vegetable oil
    -4 oz ground beef, divided into two balls
    -2 slices monterey jack cheese
    -King's Hawaiian roll, toasted in butter
    -1/2tbsp ketchup
    -1/2tbsp teriyaki sauce


    In a sauté pan, heat 1 tbsp butter until foaming, and add red onion. Cook slowly, over low heat, tossing constantly, until soft and caramelized. Set aside.

    Wipe out sauté pan, and heat remaining tablespoon of butter until sizzling. Add pineapple slices, and sauté until lightly charred on both sides. Set aside.

    In a large cast iron skillet, heat vegetable oil over high heat, until smoking. Place beef balls several inches apart in skillet, and smash down using a large, flat spatula (if you've only got a little wimpy spatula like I did, use a rolling pin or the handle of a wooden spoon to really smash the burgers down). Cook for approx. 60 seconds, until the bottom is charred and crispy. Flip, and immediately top with cheese. Remove from heat, but leave burgers in the pan while you assemble, to make the cheese melt completely. Dress bun with ketchup and teriyaki sauce, top with burgers, caramelized onions, and pineapple. Enjoy.

    Okay, I love your videos, but I was born and raised in Hawaii, and I don't deny that pineapples are kind of a Hawaii thing, but I just find it sloppy. There's so much more to Hawaii-type food than that: spam, kalua pig, chicken katsu, kalbi, huli huli chicken, seared ahi, pipikaula even.

    King's Rolls were a good move, but a taro bun would have been the best. Do they sell those on the mainland?

    You should have at least made one Burger like in the actual movie if you're gonna have that in the title.
    0:45 There is a piece of lettuce and I think some onions on it.

    I wonder if you could have blitzed up the caramelized pineapple into the burger meat then cooked it, thus retaining movie accuracy look while also giving it a wonderful Hawaiian taste.

    I like how you called yourself a "wannabe chef" in the first episode. You do realize that you've become a significantly more attractive version of John Favreau from Chef, right? Deadass I'm honestly waiting for you to just take off your glasses and reveal that you're actually Dionysus, the Greek god of Epicureans. Like hot diggidy hail mary what even are you my dude, this channel is godlike.

    The burger may not have been as boring as it looked. I've had Hawaiian style burgers at a few joints and it's actually like meatloaf seared as a burger patty. Very tasty all it's own with just a good potato bun and cheese.
