Best Homemade Hamburger Recipe

Best Homemade Hamburger Recipe

I quite often cook burgers, and they have always been pretty good. But they are never the same twice – and I think in the past, I have been so stream-of-consciousness experimental in the base ingredients that I often have lost out on the beef flavour that is the point of the exercise. This time, I think I have the best homemade hamburger recipe.

So one day, I stumbled over a burger patty recipe in John Torode’s “Beef”, which is much simpler than my previous attempts, and decided to give it a go. Since it turned out to be excellent, I have reproduced the recipe here.

John’s trick is to use no salt instead of oyster sauce since the salt is more likely to dry the meat too much, and it can be crumbly when cooked. And who wants a crumbly burger? No one, that’s who. So do not be concerned – the oyster sauce provides salt flavour, it doesn’t turn your beef patty oriental flavoured (which wouldn’t be a terrible thing, just not the classic burger I’m seeking on this occasion).

I hope you enjoy the best homemade hamburger recipe I have made yet!
