Burgers are one of the things I find most challenging as a home cook. Every time I've tried to make a burger at home, it has always turned out dry. Then I try fillers and they taste like meatballs instead of burgers.
Today I decided to try something new to see what happened.
I went to City Market and bought a pork shoulder and some beef chuck steaks. I cubed up the meat, seasoned it with salt, pepper and BBQ seasonings and asked Dev to run it all through the grinder for me. I used half pork and half beef.
The resulting burgers were amazing! The pork kept the texture soft and juicy, but the beef flavor was still there. I topped mine with the BBQ sauce I made earlier. Normally I would also go for cheese, but tonight it was all about the meat.
I was really happy with the result. I can't wait to try other combinations of ground meats. Maybe next time I'll try a lamb/beef combo. I bet you could even saute some spinach and grind that in there as well. Hmmmmmm....
