Let’s cut the bullshit.
The best beefburgers are made from MEAT without eggs as a binder and onions to add flavour – They do not break up while frying and they certainly don’t become a horrific frying pan full of mince and egg.
I am taking Heston’s advice and using some high quality mince,
combined with some cheaper mince
To be honest, all mince is available in “lines”(That sounds totally weird). Heston is big on the “lines” of mince retaining their integrity – I can get on board with that. So I took the premium mince and the less premium mince and placed them onto some cling film before salting both and squishing them together. *Technical*
I then rolled up the meat in the cling film to make a Tube O’ Meat
This then went into the fridge for 6 hours.
Remove the tube from the fridge and cut through the cling film and meat to make patties of about an inch thick each.
The burgers keep their shape beautifully so you can add them to a pan without fear of the dreaded burger breakup. I brushed the burgers with some oil before adding to a hot dry griddle.
I added some bacon to the griddle and brushed the other side of the burgers with a little oil before flipping.
Oh yeah – now for some cheese:
Finally added to a toasted bun.
Boys = amazed.
Provide some garnish – tomato, onion, lettuce – sauces.
Me = best mum in universe (as far as the boys are concerned)
This is a non-recipe that is surely worth a try? Some mince plus a sprinkle of salt plus rolling up in cling film for a few hours will get you a mega burger and applause from your family.
Have a go!
