Alright--I am very curious to find out what the worlds greatest grilled hamburger consists of. I made a pretty good one on Sunday by mixing ground chuck, worstershire, garlic, salt, pepper and beer together. Let's have recipe's!

I just start off with some nice fatty ground beef with some liquid chipotle in it. Then i cube up some porthouse steak chunks and mix it all up.

MMMM, now i have to make some this week. Very Happy

About the best Ive ever had a guy made with some Dales steak sauce mixed in the meat, and he made sort of a shallow pan out of aluminum foil and had several different types of sweet ( I think) peppers in with the burgers while they were, not exactly grilling but frying in the peppers. I say it was a guy because I dont remember his name and it was like 20 years ago, and I didnt really know him all that well then Smile

Dang zilla, you copied my recipe! Laughing Although you left out my remaining secret ingredients: season both sides of burgers with worcestershire, garlic salt, and Emirel's Essence.

OK bobo, I'll give ya the red onion, it is good sometimes, if I can have some onion fried up real brown every once in a while. Wink

BBQ Nut - It's OK ifin we share, but I think that the worchestersistershire masks the beef flavor too much, thats why I like mine mo plain. Smile

I think I'll have burgers tomorrow night. Very Happy Laughing Laughing

how about ground beef and salt...patty it up...flip once...serve on bun with mayo and pepper....maybe a slice of jack cheese...

I used to put ranch dressing, eggs, beer, italian dressing, bread crumps, and just about every other thing that I had in the pantry...

You guys need to travel more.

In Australia...get a burger with "the lot" (meaning everything)

they add a ring of pineapple and an EGG. That's their preference for burgers.

Confused

Not for me. I guess that I am finding out that I like basic stuff because it brings out the flavor of the beef. Burger, cheese, ketchup, spicy brown mustard and mayo....all I need.

I don't know, their bacon is about a foot and ahalf long and the loin is still attached. They cut it thick.....and it is guuuuuuuuooood.!!!

EDIT: I ate a lot of burgers with "the lot" when I was there. I thought the egg was a nice touch.

Do you even know what the luther or hamdog is? If not, simple bacon isnt even going to compare...

I will have to go and get a link...

I have to admit I am pretty simple in my likes...........80/20 ground beef with sweet onion mixed into it.........patty it up, salt and pepper both sides, and throw it onto the grates directly above the hot coals. A minute or two before it is done.....add the cheddar cheese. When done you put it onto a bun with some yellow mustard and a slice of red onion.

Now if I am going out for a burger it is 5 guys www.fiveguys.com

2 lbs 70/30 hamburger
Mix in one packet of lipton dry onion soup mix
Mix thoroughly
run through the meat grinder again
Make patties, but dont' pack them. Make em big, cuz they will shrink.

Grill em. Watch out for flames. You want to char them good, then set them up away from the direct heat to finish.

Serve them medium on a toasted bun with condiments of your likeing.

Now if you want, add any of the following to the hamburger before you regrind:
bacon bits
cheese
pepper
jalaps
breading
etc.

Alien Crash Down Burger
After one of these, you won’t fell like going home, or be able to lift off.

70 percent lean ground beef
Liptons onion soup mix
1 egg per 1-2 lbs (glues everything together)
1 cup of oatmeal (to hold in the moisture)
Worshtershire sauce
1 TEXAS 1015 onion (for the top, saute in butter and 1 oz. Triple Sec)
1 New Mexico “Hatch” Green Chile
Kraft deli selects cheese (yes there is a taste difference)

The egg and oatmeal keeps the burger from drying out and holds everything together. *** You don’t taste the oatmeal*** It also allows for big burgers that don’t fall apart.

Warning!!! This burger has been linked to cancer causing agents… Actually, it taste soooo good, you will want to smoke a cigarette after the experience!

Dude, they are expensive for a hamburger joint, but well worth it..........I try to get over there about once a month


I should post a warning though that if you are allergic to peanuts it is not the place for you............they have peanuts to eat while you wait for your burger and they do fry all of their fries in peanut oil (some people with peanut allergies are and some are NOt allergic to the oil)..........I personally have to go less than I would like as my daughter is allergic to peanuts, and at 6 she generally wants to go wherever I am going........BUT she does love their takeout, lol (she is not allergic to the oil).......
