Adding 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of water per pound of ground beef makes burgers cook up extra tender, and even a little juicier. Ninety percent lean sirloin, for example, has great beefy flavor but so little fat that it dries out during cooking; just add water for a delicious, juicy burger. Adding liquid will even keep well-done burgers tender and moist—now that’s magic!
