In my opinion, the meat for the burger must be necessarily ripened, otherwise hard particles will come into the meat. And this is not very nice. You need to choose meat from trusted suppliers - the best for me is Miratorg (especially Black Angus beef with maturation for 21 days).

Having picked up the meat for minced meat, be sure to wash it and cut the veins and films (without cutting off the internal fat). Pass the meat grinder through a large grill, mix very well and beat out the minced meat - this is done to saturate it with oxygen. Form cutlets, cover with cling film, then put in the refrigerator and let it brew for 2-3 hours.

Do not salt and pepper the minced meat, otherwise all the moisture will go away and the cutlets will be dry.

As for the ratio of meat and fat, optimally - 70/30.

The splendor of burger buns depends on many factors, including the following:

  • baker (the dough likes good hands);
  • choice of products;
  • choice of equipment;
  • kneading speed of the dough. The main thing is when you start to knead, you need to do it calmly and with soul. Then increase the speed.

    Like meat, the dough must be saturated with oxygen, then the buns will be lush and airy!

When the cutlet has settled in the refrigerator, it can be fried. We put the patty on a hot frying pan with vegetable oil. Salt, pepper on the upper side. Fry for 30-40 seconds.

Then we turn over and knead a little to the diameter of the bun, salt and pepper too. Fry for another 30-40 seconds and periodically turn over, bringing to the desired degree of frying.

There is a lot of talk about this topic: first with oats, cutlet or vegetables?

I do this: n the bottom of the bun is well dried until a crispy and crispy crust is formed so that it does not get wet from all the ingredients. Then I spread the sauce.

Then place the cutlet. After that - all the remaining ingredients (tomatoes, cheese, salad, pickled cucumbers). Then again the sauce and the bun cover. Bon appetit!
