How to Grill a Magnificent Burger

 

When you are in a mood of a burger, you don’t want get one which is dried out. So, how to cook a perfect burger? Here are some basic tips for burger lovers.


Firstly and very importantly, choose the right meat. 80% lean and 20% fat ground beef would be perfect. A little bit fatter is good as well. Just make sure it’s at least 20% of fat, so that your burger will taste moisture.


What we want from a magnificent burger is simple: juicy and flavorful.


Form the patties slightly. Remember not to over do it, which won’t lead to a juicy burger. You can form the patties either with your hands or with tools. If you are in a grill party while you need to feed a big group, it is better to go with the burger patty press. It will help you forming patties more efficiently with same sizes, but remember to choice a non-stick one for no-fuss patty removal. It is a trick to press with your finger right in the middle of the patties, so that they come with good shapes and moisture.
