If you're in Chicago and you want an entirely different burger experience than the Au Cheval burger, go to Redhot Ranch (two locations).

Get the RHR Double w/fries. It's less than 6 bucks. You'll thank me later.

Please everyone post their favorite methods for cooking burgers please. Please be descriptive

Smashburg:
1. Put a pan on the stove, med-high to high heat (mine has the option of a second burner ring on the outside, I donít use it)
2. Take some meat, make two lumps about the size of a golf ball. Smash them with a wet spatula on a cutting board. They should be about five inches wide maybe? Remember they will shrink a lot. If they look like they might fall apart when you pick them up then you have it right
3. Smear a tiny amount of mayo on both halves of a bun, this will keep the bun dry when you put the burg on it later. If itís a thick bun, smash it a bit before adding mayo
4. Put the burgs in the pan when itís hot
5. Wait about 2-3 minutes, then flip and put a slice of cheese on one. I tear off the corners and put it on the other burg so not too much spills into the pan but some will anyway, most of the time
6. Put the bun in a toaster right before/after flipping
7. Wait another 2 and then put them on the bun
8. I like to let it sit for a few minutes at this point to make it hold together a little better, but itís not a big deal and you can eat it immediately

Result:

Would I be correct in saying those patties would be on the well-done side?

Does anyone but me prefer a "medium well" burger? Especially when not doing the bacon-eggs-ham-mozarella-double-cheese schtick. Would love to see pictures of perfectly pink burgers cut open down the middle. This is a food porn thread after all, isn't it?

3 minutes is pretty well done for a smashburg, yea. Typically smashburgers are like a minute and a half one side and maybe 30 seconds on the other in a super hot pan and you're done.

Because otherwise the fat might get a chance to splash all over me? Smash in the pan if you prefer, whatever.

The smashing in the pan gives you better surface contact and consequently a better crust

Throw down the ball of beef let it seer a bit, then squish. Season then flip. Season again.

Yeah I don't remember *why* exactly, but I remember the contact point of the ball of meat is supposed to cook in the griddle for a bit prior to the smash. Can anyone remind me why? Whatever the reason, it works better when I do it than when I forget.

so it doesn't stick to the pan or your spatula.

I actually keep it in ball form and roll it over after i sear one side. THEN I smash so nothing sticks at all. Then flip.

To always post when cooking? Need the video of the woman saying; "nobody has the time for this"; I cook every day.

Bf is better at other things - what they are remains to be seen no, but truly; he bestows a kindness upon me; and I am made better simply by virtue of his presence; lifts my spirits and well-being; does other chores, as well.

Apologies for long post, btw, I do not intended to write as much in future. Previous thread is gone as means of forum punishment, I suspect Some wrote Private Message, asking the question of matters of perfect eggs and gender. I prefer to reply in public and on the topic of egg only. If I fry egg on both sides? My answer; well, to me, it is clear; nice runny yolk; it is life, so I do not boil hard or scramble eggs often, but no aspersions on preference of others and will comply to accommodate a wish. However, flipping fried eggs? Pointless, childish and stupid to me to ruin yolk; small crime against life and beauty, but do what you must, I shrug a shoulder and allow

It was the least worst option. Itís not that I am trying to eat less beef for environmental reasons, but the doc says I need to eat way less beef and way more fish and cut carbs. Yes, I know Tuna and many other tasty fish are super threatened and itís sad because they are so delicious.

I like butter or bibb lettuce for wraps. It holds up well enough.
Iceburg is really crispy and strong but it also breaks and wilts easily.

You could also get weird and use bok choy

bok choy has more nutrients than broccoli whilst being less taste headstrong. Recommend it where possible. It's not a burg wrap replacement though due to size of leaves, iceberg has more coverage.

Collard greens. Trim the stem down to about half thickness (don't cut it out all the way or it'll be hard to wrap), put a few drops water on it and put in a hot skillet to wilt.
