Meet Amy Dodson, founder of I’d Order That, a blog celebrating the food, travel, lifestyle (and burgers) of the American southwest.
Amy has previously written about the best burgers in Durango. Now she tells Best Burger Review about a few more of her favorites.
BBR: Tell us about you and your blog. I started my blog as a celebration … to share the things I love and continue to discover about my adopted forever home, the American Southwest. The name came about a few years ago while I was testing a butter grilled ribeye with red chile steak rub. My husband tasted it and said, “If I were in a restaurant, I’d pay for that. I’d order that.” That began our game to become better cooks, and set the bar … only ‘I’d Order Thats’ make the blog.
In the final heat of the 2015 World Burger Championships, the top 10 competitors had to create a burger recipe using citrus. For the round, Rusty Johnson created a facefull of texture and taste with “The Porchetta.” This short-rib burger is topped with luscious lemon-roasted pork belly, offset by crispy pork cracklins, and an array of lemon-infused condiments.
“The Porchetta” scored the highest in the final round of the 2015 World Burger Championships, and pushed Rusty Johnson over the top to win the event,and the $10,000 prize.
Below, Rusty Johnson shares his winning burger recipe.
