The Biggest Mistakes Everyone Makes When Cooking Burgers

There is a joy that comes with making your own burger. You pick the right kind of meat, put it through the grinder, bind it together with eggs, and add some flavor and kick with herbs and spices.

That’s just half the fun, because assembling it together with the buns and condiments involves all kinds of creativity. The right kind of cheese adds to its taste, and the rest of the condiments make it look pretty and ready to eat.

Of course, not all of us are professional chefs, so mistakes will be made. Here are the biggest mistakes everyone makes when cooking burgers.

  • Watching / hearing ricans or brits trying to teach anyone how to cook meat is hilarious… Do your homework for fuck's sake, and learn how to properly cook anything first… Thanks. 😉

  • Anyone who recommends using a microwave fails making burgers 101. What a moron. Always let the meat thaw out at room temperature. if you are worried about the meat spoiling, you are buying the wrong meat period.

  • You know the FDA is paid to say alot of things that isn't completely true. But hey thats how corporations work i guess. I can tell you that their isn't a Fine dining restaurant that unthaws meat that way. I wonder who knows more about food? A Regulatory government agency that takes bribes from cooperate industry's & don't do any scientific research at all? or People that work with food everyday & have learned both the hard way & right way from actually doing it. If you have a small amount i suppose it wouldn't be too bad i have done it a few times, But thats just for speed & your meat gets waterlogged no matter how well sealed it is, It also drips blood & globin all over the place. FDA i'm starting to think they where never a good idea. Anyways great video.

  • How defrost your frozen meat?
    Use the defrost sitting on your microwave.

    B-Edwads 17/10/2022 am11:05
  • You absolutely throw the cheese on before you take it off, never after

    Cody Coldbrewski 17/10/2022 am11:05
  • The biggest mistake you can ever make is smashing the meat. You're supposed to sear it and be patient. No burger should be dry..
