Eat-St-Cookbook-Yellow-Burger-1It all started in Miami, Florida back in 2009 when two brothers, Andreas and Flavio, and their sister, Angela launched their Yellow Submarine Truck. They created a concept that brings together good food and their love for music. Food Network’s, Eat St. hit the road and headed for Miami in search of the Yellow Submarine and its famous Yellow Burger in Season One of the series.


Since the airing of the original Yellow Submarine episode, Andreas, Flavio and Angela soared to new heights in their yellow, American bistro on wheels, transforming the roaming food truck into a counter-service, vintage-poster-covered bricks and mortar eatery now named, “Rock That Burger,” resembling a garage that a 1960s high school band practiced in.

Rock That Burger boasts a fresh new look and a name that represents its roots and original concept, bringing together the best burgers and hot dogs in an atmosphere of great music. Their musically themed menu fires off with burgers, including a fries-stuffed Boys of Summer, the Breakfast in America (bacon, fried egg, American), the BBQ and chili-smothered Hungry Like the Wolf, and the original Yellow Burger.

The Yellow Burger is their original signature burger, based on a recipe mom passed down. This mouth-watering burger is made with a well-seasoned beef patty, provolone cheese, tomato, onions, lettuce, mustard, ketchup, pineapple sauce, and crushed chips. Brothers and sister still serve the best dogs in town, including the Paradise City (a tubesteak version of the Yellow Burger), the Stairway to Heaven, and the Wonderwall.

“The quality of our food and service is our priority. We use the best quality ingredients and home-made recipes that give our food a delicious flavor that distinguishes us,” says Andreas. Based on what their customers are saying, we’d agree.

Eat St. is coming soon to bookstores everywhere. Paperny Entertainment, the producer of the Canadian Screen Award nominated hit Food Network TV show, has teamed up with Penguin Canada to create Eat St., a companion cookbook based on the hugely popular television series. Written by the show’s globetrotting host James Cunningham, Eat St. will be published by Penguin Canada in Spring, 2013 and simultaneously in the U.S. by Pintail Books to coincide with the series’ highly anticipated season four launch.

Today’s recipe is a sneak peek preview of Eat St., featuring Rock That Burger’s (Yellow Submarine Truck), Yellow Burger. Download the recipe!

      Thanks Carly!

    More or less every one like burger but I am different but can’t wait to see this

    • StitchesnDishes

      True… burgers are pretty safe on any menu. I like this one, because the pineapple isn’t overpowering at all. Great balance! I’m thinking about substituting other meats in this, too. Something gamy would be great with the pineapple I think!

    Always nice to see a burger or sandwich that is something special – gourmet – rather than the usual bland fast food or cafe variety.

    • StitchesnDishes

      Exactly… why not take the little extra effort to really put a different twist on something otherwise ordinary?

  • mmwalker

    My friends would be salivating over this one!! I have shared it with all of them!!

    • StitchesnDishes

      Awesome! Let me know how they like it!

      • mmwalker

        Mostly medium well. And they did salivate when I showed it to them!

        • StitchesnDishes

          Haha! love it

  • StitchesnDishes

    That could be a bit of a challenge – I use the palm/squash method personally… after taking a picture of it first, of course! LOL

  • MightyCasey

    Gotta admit that I’m a little freaked out by the pineapple, but I’ll definitely give it a whirl on your recommendation =)

    • StitchesnDishes

      Let me know what you think Casey! I’d really like to try something like a bison or buffalo burger with this recipe. I think it would really kick it up a notch.

      • MightyCasey

        I will. I’ll do two, one w/pineapple and one w/out, so I can get a full set of gustatory data points =)

        • StitchesnDishes

          Substitute something else for the pineapple in the second burger… I think it’ll be on the boring side without an interesting topper.
