Burger of the Gods

For my last burger, I wanted to do a beef burger. I headed over to my Google Reader to see what fellow bloggers had to offer recipe wise. I honestly didn’t see anything that jumped out at me. Then I remembered that Alton Brown did an episode where he made a meatloaf and a burger. I had high hopes for this recipe because 1, it’s from Alton Brown 2, of the 62 reviews online it still had an average rating of 5 stars and 3, the recipe is called Burger of the Gods.

I set out to grab the ingredients and of course, I couldn’t find just 8 oz of chuck and sirloin. The smallest amount of each was 1.3 lbs. Luckily the only other ingredient is Kosher salt, so I didn’t have to do too much math to adjust the recipe.

I ended up with 8 patties, which again, I froze. This time I froze them prior to cooking them. I figured a beef patty is best medium rare and that’s hard to accomplish if you cook it, then reheat it.

I was thinking about toppings for our burger and I decided to go with tomato and mustard – one of my favorite topping combos. This burger is awesome. It tastes like steak on a bun. We enjoyed them and are excited to have a couple more meals worth in the freezer!

Burger of the Gods

Yield: 3

Ingredients:

8 ounces chuck, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
8 ounces sirloin, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:

In separate batches, pulse (for a few seconds) the chuck and the sirloin in a food processor 10 times. Combine the chuck, sirloin, and kosher salt in a large bowl. Form the meat into 5-ounce patties.

Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Place the hamburger patties in the pan. For medium-rare burgers, cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side. For medium burgers, cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side. Flip the burgers only once during cooking.

    I definitely look forward to corned beef every year. Yours looks awesome. We actually trekked to CT this year for my mom’s corned beef and cabbage. And I got to take some leftovers home to make corned beef hash!

    Hi! I would like to try this for Saint Patrick’s Day this year and wanted to verify that the liquid ingredients added to the dutch oven are not brought to a simmer on the stovetop before being placed in the oven?

      Yep! Just dump it in and throw it in the oven.
