A GOOD OLD AMERICAN CHEESEBURGER
The BEST BURGER EVER ! And HOW to MAKE IT.
1 & 1/2 pounds PRIME GROUND BEEF CHUCK
Salt & Pepper
4 or 8 slices good quality American or Cheddar Cheese
4 Hamburger Buns
2 tablespoons vegetable oil Ketchup (Heinz is the Best)
Sliced raw Onion or sautéed Onions, Bacon, Mustard, Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato
1. Divide the Ground Beef into 4 equal parts.Shape Beef into Patties about ½ inch thick.
2. Heat a frying pan (Skillet) over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add oil, 30 seconds. Turn flame up to high. Add raw beef patties. Cook 2 minutes. Season burgers with salt & Pepper. Turn heat down to medium, cook for two minutes..
3. Turn heat back up to high. Turn burgers over to other side. Cook for two minutes until Burgers are about medium well, which is the Best way to cook a burger. Cook a little less if you want a medium Burger and less still if you want your cooked Burger Medium Rare.
BURGER NOTES: To cook your Burgers on the back-yard grill, it usually takes about 7 minutes to cook a Half-Inch Thick Burger depending on the heat of the grill, about 4 minutes on the first side and then you turn the burger over and cook it two three minutes on the second side. Also, make sure not to make the common era of flipping your burger several time. You need to flip it once to get the best results. Yes, just once. That’s it, 1 Tim, and A good trick for you to know, which most home cooks to not know is that you can use a knife to poke into the center of the burger to see how much it is cooked in the center. If you look into the center and see it is a lot rarer than you would like it to be cooked, then you will know that you have a few more minutes to cook it. This is a great trick to know for all cooking, so get in the habit of doing it as it is one of the greatest pieces of cooking knowledge you’ll ever get. This is particularly good method to use when cooking chicken or turkey to look inside to see if the bird is cooked through or if it is still a little raw and you’ll need to cook it more. As we have laid out instructions to cook a Burger on an outdoor grill as many like to cook them this way. We will reiterate that personally, we feel cooking a Burger cooked in a pan or a Flat-Top-Grill where the Burger can cook in its own fat is the Best way. It gives the burger more flavor and the burger gets evenly browned, but if you want to cook the burgers on an outdoor grill, that’s your choice and your prerogative as the Stranger would say.
