Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients for the veal burger, except the butter, in a large bowl. Mix into a smooth batter with a hand mixer. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  2. Peel and dice the celery root. Cook until soft in lightly salted water for about 20 minutes. Add vinegar, if you're using any. The vinegar helps the celery retain its color and adds extra flavor.
  3. Strain the water. Mix celery and butter into a smooth puree. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.
  4. Shape meat into round balls and flatten slightly into patties. Fry in butter in a large frying pan on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  5. Before serving, melt butter on medium heat in a skillet until amber-colored, for a nice nutty taste. Fry sugar snaps for a few minutes in butter.
  6. Serve veal burgers with the celery root mash and browned butter.

    How in the world did you get these lovely looking veal burgers to brown so perfectly over medium heat in 5 minutes?????
    I followed the recipe and have a very loose meat mixture with barely brown overall appearance? Is it a photo shoot? Please tell me the secret because I just spent a lot of money to get all the good ingredients.

    I am unable to source any ground veal unfortunately. Can I use any other type of ground meat as a substitute as I was going to make it for dinner tonight! Apologies for the silly question. This meal plan looks awesome and I am looking forward to cooking them all.

    Any other fatty meat will work well.
