  • Makes a note about cross-contamination, then proceeds to cook his burger medium rare. Seems a bit contradictory...

    Luke HowardLuke HowardVor Monat
    • @Adam Depending on your definition of "medium rare", this level of doneness is around 125-135 degrees before resting. Harmful bacteria that is very likely present in ground meat (since the meat is ground not a whole cut) is killed at about 155-160 degrees F. So, unless your definition of medium rare is 155-160 degrees, then a medium rare burger is not always safe

      Luke HowardLuke HowardVor Monat
    • Medium rare is cooked. Raw is not. Using your spatula on raw meat can cause cross contamination.

  • Kosher salt gives me canker sores, can't use it. Makes no difference in final results.

  • How does grinding it yourself protect you from anything? Wouldn't the meat need to be cooked before grinding?

    Isaac KarjalaIsaac KarjalaVor Monat
    • Simply because the ground meat you buy in the supermarket is coming from a bunch of cows. The odds of one of the cows used in the beef of your package having been sick is higher than grinding your own, where you only have one cow's meat. Yes, you can still get sick from it, but it does reduce the odds.

      H HH HVor Monat
  • Try preheating you CI grille in a 500 F. oven for 20-30 mins.

  • The idea that "smashing the patty makes it dry" is a myth. Ask Guga.

    Mr_GiXxErMr_GiXxErVor Monat
  • I'll admit it, I'm not much of a mayonnaise fan. However, I decided to give the mayo & pepper blend a try on my burger for the first time this evening, since Alton did suggest it. I don't know what I've been missing, because that really was, as he would say, good eats!

  • Disagree. Salt in the mix before cooking toughens up the meat and makes it more "rubbery". Salt should only be put on the meat the second before it hits the pan. Look it up, salt changes the structure of the meat.

  • The one problem I have with this burger is you didn't put down a sheet of lettuce. That way there is no chance of soggy bun if someone wants more sauce

  • Others would grill that same beef over charcoal, or hardwood, with equally delicious results. Grilled flavor in place of seared "crusting" from pan frying. It's the quality of the meat (and the bun) that matters most.

  • I’ve ground just about every cut and combination of fresh select / choice grade of beef in the grocery store and nothing compares to grass fed ground beef in the unimpressive, square, prepackaged plastic wrappers, unfortunately. If you want to grind your own beef, find an old school butcher shop where they do more than just plastic wrap previously butchered beef and be prepared to pay steak prices for high quality grass fed cuts of beef to grind up.
