Fresh Ground Chuck Makes The Best Burger
Yes, it does. It has the right amount of fat, un-tenderness, gristle and connective tissue to give the burger an interesting texture and flavor. A little Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper on the outside. Sear and grill that baby over high heat to your desired doneness. I prefer it on a toasted English muffin. Yummm!!!!
Usually a great burger doesn't need anything. But sometime a square of American cheese. Or perhaps some sauteed mushrooms and onions. Bleu cheese. Crisp bacon. But, like I said a great burger needs nothing more than a good bun and a scmear of ketchup.
It's only my opinion, as all food matters are, but making a burger from filet mignon, or Kobe beef is the pitts.
