GTU Recipes

(Good Things Utah) One item close to Cory Harwell’s heart is the Iron Chef Burger, based on a recipe developed by Harwell’s dear friend and original Carson Kitchen collaborator, the late Chef Kerry Simon.

“It’s a riff on the burger that Kerry created when he won the hamburger battle against chef Cat Cora in the second season of ‘Iron Chef America,’” he says. “It features red onion jam, crispy prosciutto, and celery leaf.”
