Making burgers from grass-fed beef

OakTownHound | May 23, 2007 04:44 PM

I have about a pound of grass-fed ground beef from Highland Hills Farm sitting in my freezer right now. (

I'm thinking the best way to appreciate this excellent meat would be to make burgers. Here's my question:

It is my understanding that grass-fed beef is generally quite lean, and the appearance of this beef would suggest that this is the case. I'm used to making burgers from fattier beef, so how do I turn this stuff into a good burger? Add fat of some sort to the burger? Cook it extremely rare?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
