How to make the PERFECT hamburger!

  1. It all starts with the best burger. Choose the best burger you can find. Quality matters!
  2. Choose a ratio of 80/20 meat to fat if possible. That will make it juicy and tender. Leaner beef won’t shrink as much.
  3. Form the burgers the size you want. A typical burger is about a quarter pound.
  4. Don’t overwork the burger. Just knead it gently to shape.
  5. Don’t go for a perfectly shaped patty. About 3/4 of an inch thickness is what matters.
  6. Make an indentation. This is key! It really works. Press your thumb and fingers in the center of the patty to create a slight dent. This way the burger will catch the oil and won’t balloon like a football.
  7. Don’t over season or complicate the burger with added ingredients. It’s not a meatloaf.
  8. Drizzle olive oil lightly on the patties. Helps keep it moist and adds some flavor.
  9. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper. Just those simple ingredients! Remember, the beef is what we are wanted to enjoy!
  10. Heat up the grill on ahead of time! Use a higher setting.
  11. Oil the grill with some olive oil. See the video for how it’s done.
  12. Always cook the burger thoroughly, unless you know it’s fresh. Grass-fed beef is also less prone to bacteria, so a medium rare grass-fed burger is acceptable.
  13. Only flip it once. That gives you the classic grill marks make the burger look as good as it tastes!
  14. Melt the cheese for 30 seconds. Yes, that cheese adds so much.
  15. Lightly butter and toast the bun. Of course, use the most natural butter and bun you can.
