4 Levels of Hamburgers: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 28 March 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of a hamburger. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which hamburger was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/frank-proto-cheeseburger-recipe

                  For me, it depends on *WHO* I am making burgers for.. when I go home, and see my sister and her kids, I will take 2 pounds of free range Prime Rib, and mix it with a 2 pounds of Short rib , and hand grind it to a medium coarse grind for my meat. Salt & Pepper just before cooking, *NO EGGS or BREAD crumbs* Bacon lard, Beef lard, or duck fat. Confit burger is OMG yummy.. I make my 8 oz burgers saucer shaped, add red onion slices to the top side, and a blue / gruyere cheese mix on a sour dough bread, with sauerkraut, mustard, I take mayo, ketchup, diced pickle, and pickled onion and mix it together, with a little red wine vinegar.
