When people think of burger restaurants, what is the first thing that comes to their minds? Is it the greasy burgers or maybe it is the customer service and friendliness of the staff? Whatever it is, people have come to love this famous food just as much as they love hamburgers. With all the recipes and necessary tools, now you can make your own great tasting burgers at home. Here are some tips for you to follow in creating the perfect burgers.
First of all, the burger buns or crust are what gives the taste of the meat together with the browns, salt and spices. You need to use a meat mix that is just the right size to let the juices from the meat soak into it. If you are using ground meat, always use a big proportion amount of fat on it so that it does not spoil quickly. Add onions, green peppers and spices, and make sure that all these ingredients are mixed well with the ground meat.
For the meat bun, you need to first cut the slices into thin slices and then dice it. The next step is to add the oil, garlic, pepper and herbs to the meat. It is best if you do not season the meat before putting it in the bun. Once you have done all these things, you need to mix it all with bread crumbs. Add sugar or honey to give it a sweet taste.
Making the sauce is quite easy. You only need to fry the onions and garlic until it gives you the desired golden brown color. Then you can blend in the tomatoes and the pickled ketchup to make a tasty sauce. Add the ice cold mayonnaise to give it a creamy texture. Add the burger meat mix to it and you are done!
The final step would be to slice up the patty into small pieces. Use a meat grinder to grind the burger meat to get rid of the excess fat. Place all the pieces on a bun and add lettuce leaf on top. If you want to decorate it, you can drizzle it with any kind of toppings you want such as fresh tomato, blue cheese, red onion, spicy mustard, etc. You can even put your own label on it to make it more personal.
In order to cook the burger, you need to use butter or margarine for the buns. Make sure to grease the bun properly or else the burger will end up falling apart. When the burger buns are ready, place a cheese slice on one side of the bun and a burger on the other. Alternately open up the halves and slide them off the grill. Grill for around 2 minutes to cook both sides. Serve up with your favorite toppings.
You can also do this for other burgers such as the steak on the hoof or the hopper. Just make sure to leave some room in between each individual piece so the juices from the burger will run into the meat. Now stand outside on the grass and grill the burgers till they are done. Place them on the bun and enjoy. Serve up with plenty of fresh lemon pepper spray on them to make them extra tasty.
If you're in a mood to experiment with ground beef, you can try ground patties. These are made by grinding beef at home and then baking them in the oven. Add any seasonings such as Worcestershire sauce, barbecue sauce, and sour cream. Cook them until they are fully cooked through. Serve up with any veggies you like such as broccoli and shredded carrots.
