Make In-and-Out’s Animal Style Burgers At Home

The video tells the tale, but the animal sauce itself is pretty simple: vinegar, dill relish, mayo and ketchup, all mixed well to the consistency and flavour of your choosing (although the full recipe is linked below.) You’ll also want those trademark caramelised onions for the topping, which can take a little time to make, but is well worth it. The other secret is to cook your burgers, and then spread some mustard on the uncooked side before you flip them over.

Once you do flip them over, top each patty with cheese, cook for about 30 more seconds, then pop them on a hamburger roll with mayo, pickle, lettuce, tomato, and a little of that sauce underneath, and a good dose of those caramelised onions on top. Even if you’re not necessarily wild about the idea of “recreating a fast food burger at home,” the recipe itself turns out a pretty tasty burger, so it’s worth a try.

  • I love recipes like these that use ingredients that might be easy to access in one part of the world, but don’t exist in Australia. “Dill pickle relish”. Note that this tastes nothing like Master Foods gherkin relish, which is the only thing even vaguely equivalent in Australian supermarkets.

  • I had In & Out recently. It was rubbish. Absolute rubbish. I think if Americans left the mother land to try food outside their country, they’d be well surprised how crap their food tastes.
