  • So simple. So perfect.

  • Can someone explain to me why Alton ate it medium rare? You cant eat a medium rare burger because the contaminants on the surface of the meat touch all the other parts during the grinding process. Because of this, it's only safe to eat burgers of they're well done. But Alton ate it medium rare 0_o.

  • I don't care who or what anyone says smashing a burger when cooking destroys the flavor. It's all those juices that make a burger taste great. That's a lot of flavor getting squeezed out. Besides I like adding a bit of soy and Worcestershire sauce to the ground beef as it gets a more robust steak taste.

    Ken JettKen JettVor 3 Monate
    • @Ken Jett For sure, doing that way is just dumb...the whole Smash Burger craze is doing it before it's's not new though...some small Mom and Pop places have been making smash burgers for 75 years. I think we are generally on the same page, have a good one!

      Scott GrumpyScott GrumpyVor 2 Monate
    • @Scott Grumpy well yeah true if done before it come up to heat. But other than style of cooking the patty is hand flattened before placing on the heat not on the grill or iron. But I don't see a problem with placing you burger ball on the iron and smashing flat that is just individual style of cooking. But that isn't the context I been referring too because time and again I see people squish their burgers during the cooking process and in Altons words that just evil.

      Ken JettKen JettVor 2 Monate
    • @Ken Jett The problem is if you wait until it's cooking and smash it down after the fat gets hot then it will run out. If you smash it down the moment you put it on the flattop it won't do that. Yes I agree you never squash a burger on a grated most things it's about when and how...carry on burger man!

      Scott GrumpyScott GrumpyVor 2 Monate
    • @Scott Grumpy that's fine everyone's taste is different but for good burger it needs to be juicy not dry. When you squeeze your taking all that moisture out of it and end up with a dry burger. That why I like adding extra moisture not less..

  • 3:57 Smash burgers are awesome. Take two 2 oz balls, smash them as flat as you can into a hot pan. Cook for a minute, then scrape (yes scrape with an actual scraper to get all the burnt/caramelized meat sticking to the pan) the patties up, flip and cook for another 10-15 seconds. You might need to do the patties one at a time to make sure you get them super thin. I use a cast iron press.

  • I never smash my burgers because I don’t want thin dried out burgers. I like a big patty that’s cooked to medium, so after searing one side, I flip then sear then cover. If I’m adding cheese, it’s also a thick slice and it goes on right before I cover. No thin pre-cut slices of cheese for me either. You shouldn’t buy pre-cut cheddar anyway. Finally, like Alton did in the full video that you didn’t show here, I don’t dress the burger with lots of toppings or fancy sauces. All that stuff is fluff - restaurant tricks to “extend” the burger and make it look big because you just paid for a 2mm patty.
