Recipe: The Kerrigan’s signature burger

Keep walking through the luxurious lobby at Pier One Sydney Harbour and you’ll hit the wharf, the permanent location for casual food slinger The Kerrigan, a protein focused food shack that’s dishing up some worthy competition to the burger lords of Sydney. Next to smoked beef brisket and Korean fried chicken wings sits a beautiful looking signature burger that we just happen to have the recipe for. For all you home-burg aficionados, give this one a spin and see if you can recreate this beauty from the ground-up.
