    I have been experimenting with ground short ribs, so far I like 100% short rib burger the most.


    What's your blend and what is any seasonings do you add?

    85/15

    That’s bad enough.

    I tried the 93/7 and that’s like eating MDF...

    Don't eat much meat.

    When we do, 90/10 chuck or sirloin or whatever.

    Form the patty. Pepper each side. Then salt each side heavily. Just want to taste the meat. Not seasonings. And get a crust.

    3-4 minutes a side in medium hot pan.

    Seem to come out medium+

    50/50 blend of brisket and sirloin if I had my choice. Brisket for the fat and sirloin for the taste.

    I'll have to check with Burger King and get back to you.
    I think they use meat but not 100% sure.

    Looked like your thread needed a bump. You are welcome.

    I just buy a tube of 73/27 ground beef. I get perfectly good results, frying on the stovetop with just kosher salt, pepper, and butter.

    I just hope Kroger aren't using any Pink Slime.

    I don't know. I buy the organic ground beef from Costco. Do I need to up my burger game? It's only a burger, after all.

    (googles)

    85% lean / 15% fat

    I've never looked at them numeros 'fore!

    We use that too. It's odd - that organic and grass fed beef produces much less "fat juice" when it is cooked. The same 85/15 in regular ground beef produces a lot more.

    50/50 ground round/ground chuck. I make the patties so that one side is chuck, other round.

    Season fatty side with Tony’s and grind pepper.

    Hot fire, fat side down first to get flames going. Flip in about two minutes, apply cheese and cover grill. When cheese has melted, about a minute, they’re done for me.

    90-10, I'm a low fat eater.

    Lawry's seasoned salt, sometimes a squirt of Worcestershire sauce.

    Lawry's and Worcestershire sounds like a great combo!

    Grate a bit of extra mature cheddar into it and thank me later: cheeseburger on the inside makes a spectrum of flavour

    PS: I accept that is not kosher
