What is the secret to juicy hamburgers?
Here are the chef’s tips to turning out the ultimate, show-stopping burger:
- Use 80/20 ground chuck.

What can I add to ground beef for flavor?
For filler and flavor, add chopped herbs and soaked breadcrumbs. Minced garlic, fresh herbs, and dried spices flavor ground meat so effectively because they get mixed right into the center of the meat, unlike with a steak or roast, where the seasoning just sits on the surface.
Why do restaurant burgers taste better?
Most top-notch burger places use a flat-top griddle to cook their burgers. These griddles are set at a consistent temperature, one that allows the burgers to get a sear while cooking evenly on the inside, locking in the juices.
What can you use instead of chorizo?
The Best Spanish Chorizo Substitutes
- Other Sausage. In most cases any sausage can be substituted for the chorizo.
- Mexican Chorizo. You won’t be able to slice it, however the flavours will still be great.
- Ground (Minced) Pork + Smoked Paprika.
- Chickpeas + Smoked Paprika.
How do you know when chorizo is cooked?
After cooking, it will be a dull red or even a light brown. The texture is probably the best way to test if you have fully cooked chorizo. If the texture is still sticky and very easy to mold it together, it requires more cooking. It should resemble cooked ground beef, but it will be tiny pieces of sausage.
How does Gordon Ramsay make the perfect burger?
Gordon makes his own burgers by mixing two cuts of minced meat. He uses 85% chuck and 15% brisket. He also grates frozen butter into the mixture to create a “rich buttery smooth flavour” and to ensure that the burgers stay lovely and moist.
What should I mix in my burgers?
This basic burger seasoning is made with a blend of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Feel free to add a little minced dried onion for added flavor and a bit of texture if you like. Mix it into the meat or sprinkle it over the patties as they cook.
What can I mix with venison hamburger?
Like any other burger, you can top a venison burger with whatever you want. You can do a simple cheese, ketchup, and mustard combo, or add more bacon for that extra bacon-y flavor. You can even add a little Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, or barbecue sauce during its last minute on the grill for a big burst of flavor.
