Ultra-Moist Burger Patties

The one thing I always find with homemade burger patties is that they don’t meet restaurant quality in terms of moistness. So to solve this terrible problem, I embarked upon a quest to make a burger patty that was cooked through yet still moist. Yes, it’s a little bit of fiddling around, and yes, it’s not the most healthy thing in the world, but boy, is it worth making these ultra-moist burger patties!

You should eat these with sugary white hamburger buns, tomato, cheese and bacon. But, sometimes, you just have to let loose! You can thank me later.

Homemade burgers often don't have the same moistness of pub burger. That's why I tried my hands on it with these ultra-moist burger patties.

  • 1 pound beef mince lean
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • ¼ cup garlic butter


  • Combine minced beef, salt and pepper together in a bowl with your hands. Moisten hands throughout to ensure they do not stick to the mince.
  • Split the mince mixture into 8 evenly sized balls.
  • Press one piece of mince mixture to form a ring, making a slight indent in the middle. Remove the form and put this piece of mince to the side for now.
  • Press another piece of mince into your now-empty forming ring on a new piece of foil.
  • Spoon a quarter (15grams) of garlic butter into this indent and remove the forming ring.
  • Place the first piece of mince on the other piece with the garlic butter like a sandwich. Seal the edges to make sure the butter doesn’t run out when you start cooking.
  • Repeat steps 3 to 6 until you have 4 complete burger patties. Then, you can pop the patties on a plate and refrigerate them until you are ready to cook them.
  • Make sure the pan is heated to medium/high heat, and cook the patties 2 at a time. Add some more butter to grease the pan if necessary. Cook for between 5 to 10 minutes (depending on how you like your burgers).
  • Let the burgers settle for 5 minutes before serving; just make sure the butter inside isn’t too hot. They are now ready to enjoy!
