If you ask ten people about how to make a great burger, you will probably get ten different answers. We’re not talking about the toppings as everyone has their own idea about what condiments to use to finish off the perfect burger. We’re talking about the basics, including the meat to choose and how to cook it.
The first tip is to obtain high-quality grass-fed angus beef. Ideally, you want to purchase it from a local farmer, as it will be at its absolute freshest condition and will have been raised humanely. When you know the source of your angus beef, you will be able to cook to medium rare or even rare without concern and leave in all those delicious juices!
The next tip is to decide which seasonings to use for your grass-fed angus beef burgers. There are plenty of spice blends out there on the market, or you can go with whatever flavors you like. Minimalists swear by just salt and pepper but feel free to experiment to see what you like. If you want the meat flavor to shine through, don’t overdo the amount of spice.
The last tip is to research the many ways you can actually cook a grass-fed angus beef burger. There are so many options that you’ll have fun giving each a try. Smashed in a fry pan (cast-iron is great!), grilled over charcoal or wood, smoked in a wood or pellet smoker, or even sous vide (if you haven’t tried this last one, you really should!) will all provide a different end result.
