Wrote a quick post on Tarragon Beef Sliders for Daily Life today. Nothing like a good burger to make the world a better place. For some reason, tarragon is severely underrated. It’s the herb that hung out at the library instead of sneaking ciggies out the back behind the shed with the fennel fronds, micro-herbs and other cool kids. French tarragon in particular is spectacular. The taste divine and unmistakable, and when freshly picked and finely chopped it is destined to be massaged into a bit of meat and eaten with abandon. I’ve included recipes for the brioche rolls and spiced tomato relish here but you could easily replace these with store bought versions. Either way, these sliders are perfect Sunday afternoon backyard bbq fodder.
For the patties combine beef, tarragon, garlic, onion, egg and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Shape into 6-12 small hamburger patties and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
