2 pounds of Wagyu, which is American-style Kobe beef (80% meat, 20% fat)

8 slices of bacon (2 per burger) Rendered - save the fat

5 oz of cambazola cheese -- 1 ½ oz per burger

Arugula, 3 or 4 pieces per burger

4 Pretzel buns

6 onions, caramelized: Take onions, peel and julienne. Then, take fat from rendered bacon, put in a pan and sweat the onion on low heat. Next, when the onion is half done, add 1 cup of pineapple juice and cook onions until lightly brown and sugary sweet.

Next cook the meat until Medium Rare

Add cheese, bacon, arugula, onions, and put on pretzel roll

Chef's note: Wagyu beef is available at Whole Foods and Fox and Obel
