How To Create The Perfect Burger

the perfect burger
The best burgers combine different tastes and textures and have a mix of sweet, salt and sour with a bit of crunch.  The bun needs to be sturdy but soft and the patty definitely needs to be juicy. Also, the bun/meat/accompaniment ratio needs to be even from the first to the last bite. You can add the lettuce, tomato and onion to your heart’s content but leave out too much of the pickles since this one’s a little controversial. The best burgers have a sweet tangy zing coming out of them.

A good burger doesn’t fall apart after the first bite so you need to make sure that the size of the bun is well matched with that of the patty. A little bit off the scale can be acceptable but aiming for perfection is urged. In the end, it’s all about balance.

The Bun

Don’t make the bun too crusty. Butter it and let seep gently through the bun. It’ s good if you halve the buns and pop them into an over for 30 seconds to light toast and warm. A sweet brioche bun complementing the texture of the beef is recommended for use.

 

The Patty

The best burgers are made from grass-fed premium beef or lamb. You’ll find that the best cuts are those which are lean and fatty at the same time and gets a brilliant proportion to your taste. You need to season your patties well with a touch from your sixth sense and if you want to ride on a different train, then use salt and pepper, depending on the size of the patty.

 

The Cheese

A slice of tasty cheese melted over the top of the patty can really turn things around.  As soon as the patty is first turnped, you need to put the cheese on, so by the time it’s melted, the patty should be cooked.

 

The Pickles

The standard rule is that a burger should always have pickles as they add a nice bit of acidity to the burger. Slice lengthways and lay on the top of the beef patty with some melted cheese and mustard.

 

The Onions

Red onions. Sliced or diced. Raw and cooked. Take it this way and you’ll get that kick and crunch that you need on each bite.

 

The Lettuce and condiments

A burger has to have excellent condiments. The way you add them is entirely in your discretion but remember always to add mustard, good quality tomato sauce (preferably Heinz) and last but really important, lettuce. Lettuce is what gives the burger its fresh feel on every bite.
