Why put an ice cube on a hamburger?
This isn’t just a cooking tip from anyone — it came straight from Master Chef judge Graham Elliot. If you tuck an ice cube in the middle of your patty, it will melt as the patty cooks, while the water produced will be absorbed by the rest of the burger, keeping the meat moist as it cooks, rather than it drying out.
How do you make a Gordon Ramsay burger?
Directions. Blend Sirloin chuck, brisket, and short rib ground beef mix, then mix in with some egg, I suggest you prepare a day ahead before grilling. Patty into 8 oz patties and then refrigerator 24 hours before using, this will help the patties stay together and don’t come apart as you are grilling them.
Whether to add breadcrumbs or not is entirely a textural decision if you’re making burgers yourself. It’s a good way to “stretch” the meat so you get more patties per kilo of actual meat, but that’s a commercial reason to add breadcrumbs, not a culinary one.
