6. Canola oil

Most in and out secret menu introduce cream or milk, into the recipe for added taste and juiciness, and others make use of onions as a standard ingredient. For onions to have the best effect, it should be finely chopped. For those using herbs, it is best not to use them in excess. After all, the taste of the meat is basic interest of a burger.


Selecting the kind of ground beef you’ll use is the first step involved in making a delicious burger. Ground chuck, as listed above, is highly recommended. Those who had tested a variety of ground meats have discovered that ground chuck delivers the best and most delicious burgers. Make sure the ground burger have a ratio of 80/20, which implies 80% lean meat and 20% fat.

The next step is combining the onions and garlic with the ground chuck. At that point put them inside a neat plastic bag. Put it in the refrigerator for 60 minutes. For more flavors, you may add bacon to it; this totally depends on you. After 60 minutes, take out the plastic bag with the beef and frame them into patties.

After deciding on your ground beef, it’s time to split the ground chuck into four equal parts which weighs about six to seven ounces. And after that, you carefully shape them into one-half inch thick patties. After that, use your right thumb to press the middle of the patties to form a well that will prevent the patties from losing their shapes and swelling up. Subsequently, the juicy flavour remains. This procedure is very important because the spices and herbs will give the beef the delightful flavor. Add the salt, cinnamon, pepper, garlic, and basil to the patties. Ensure that the coating of the spice is evenly distributed on both sides.

Before putting the patties, make sure to heat up your grill. Doing this will make the beef get cooked equitably on all sides. Now a toaster can be used to monitor the cooking process and also toast the buns on another skillet. After which, you can prepare your sauces like the ketchup and the mayonnaise. While waiting for you burger to get cooked up, you can chop the cheese.

This is the process where you combine all sorts of seasonings on your delicious burger. Adding some black pepper and a little kosher salt makes the beef’s flavor come through. After seasoning the hamburgers, gently brush them with canola oil. This will prevent them from gluing to the barbecue grill.

After a short while, place the patties on the heated barbecue grill and allow them to scorch gently. The patties only require three to four minutes of grilling. Do not flip the patties more than once; one flip is enough for the hamburgers. Flipping more than once will reduce the juiciness of your patties.

Cheese should be added over each patty about thirty seconds before taking the burgers out of the grill. Get the burns ready and then cut two buns into equal parts. Put one cooked beef patty above the bun you plan to put at the bottom together with one slice of lettuce and tomato. Now on the bun, spread mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard then place it above the bottom bun (this becomes the middle). To form a double-layered burger, add vegetables to another bun and then top it on another bun with the same spices on it as the top bun. This method can also be used to make a regular burger with two buns.

Lastly, you can add topping such as tomato, pickles, onions, lettuce, and loads of others on your burger. This is optional and it totally depends on each individual. Most people prefer their burgers with toppings, others don’t. Just make be creative and enjoy your burger. Following these aforementioned steps will make delicious burgers for four people.

Step by step instructions to make a burger is one thing, however how to eat it is another! Serving a burger in a toasted or soft bun and maybe with a plate of vegetables or fries is one of the most common methods of serving burgers. This leaves it with its chaperon season, while many serve the burger in a rich sauce, possibly with mashed potatoes as backup.
