The Perfect Hamburger

To cook your perfect hamburger all you need to Mitchell Bros. Ground Beef, either a BBQ or a cast iron pan, butter, and salt n pepper. 

Each package of Mitchell Bros. Ground Beef is approximately 1lb. Split the package evenly into 4 for 1/4 lb burgers.

*Because Grass Finished Beef is leaner then conventional beef, make sure to always cook your burgers at a lower temperature to make sure that you don't overcook*

  1. Prepare the BBQ or your cast iron pan for cooking by preheating at a medium temperature. For the BBQ you should be able to hod your hand about 6 inches away from the flames for 4-6 seconds. For your cast iron pan, add the butter and once it starts to brown, you're ready to go
  2. Shape your ground beef into equal size patties and press your thumb down in the middle to make an indentation. The resulting dimple will help prevent the burger from shrinking.
  3. Generously season the patties with Salt N Pepper on both sides
  4. Turn the heat down to medium-low (either on the cast iron or the BBQ)
  5. Place your patties onto either the grill or the cast iron pan
  6. Cook them uncovered for about 1-2 minutes each side, until the bottom of the meat caramelizes and becomes a little charred.  Flip them and cook for another 1-2 minutes
  7. Serve :)
