What type of meat is best for hamburger recipes?

Meat used in hamburger recipes creates a difference due to its fat content and quality. If you want to take the best type of meat for hamburgers, prefer ground chuck over ground beef. Ground chuck is the meat from beef shoulders and is most suitable for hamburgers. While ground beef is the combination of meat from different parts of the beef body.  To enjoy both flavors you can combine 40 percent brisket and 60 percent ground beef.

You can choose lean ground beef if you are concerned about fat intake. However, it is suitable for the best flavor to take 20 percent fat content meat.

Tips for restaurant-style hamburger recipes:

  • Avoid handling meat too much, as it may get tough. Do not extra press the patties while cooking them. If you do so, these will get tough and not juicy. Gently shape the beef patties for juicy hamburgers.

  •  Make a small depression in the center of the patties before cooking them.  In this way, you will get evenly cooked patties.

  • You can check the edges or sides of the patties to check that either they are cooked or not. This will void overcooking or burning of patties.

  • Some chefs avoid drying out patties before cooking. They do this by placing small ice cubes in the depressions that you have made in the patties.
