Seared Ahi Burger (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 4 Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna Steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 4 Tucson Baked Brioche Buns
  • 16oz Shredded Cabbage
  • Chopped Cilantro to taste
  • Sesame Oil
  • Wasabi Mayo (recipe below)
  • Ponzu Sauce (recipe below)

Directions:  
Toss Ponzu Sauce with shredded cabbage and cilantro until lightly coated. You will have extra Ponzu sauce. Set aside.

Heat a saute pan large enough to hold all four steaks over med-high heat. Add sesame oil to hot pan and place steaks in pan, don't overcrowd!

Saute for approximately one minute on each side for rare Ahi. Drizzle extra Ponzu sauce over steaks when they are almost done cooking.

Meanwhile, lightly toast the brioche buns in the oven or broiler.

Spread Wasabi Mayo on both sides of each bun. Place cooked Ahi steak on bottom bun, top with Asian slaw, and top bun. At Saguaro Corners we serve with our Hand Cut Daily Fries, or House-made Ranch Potato Chips. Enjoy!

The warehouse retailer announced that their food court will no longer carry the popular polish dog at a majority of its locations.  The reason? A push toward healthier food choices. In addition to the polish dog, the mixed berry sundae has been replaced with an açai fruit bowl, with organic burgers and plant-based protein salads making a place for themselves on the menu as well.
