A Smashed Burger

A Smashed Burger

When I cook burgers-and I have cook a lot of burgers-I always make it easy. I season them with salt and pepper, throw them on a hot stove and let them cook for 4-5. Minutes per side until they are neutral. Let's say you use a good beef with 15-20%. Fat in it you will be in a fantastic shape just by hurting it. This homemade burger smash is all different, though and is one of my favorite burgers, even during the grilled season.

There is a mid-range burger shop starting in Denver called Smashburger, which now has a place across the United States and they use a slightly different approach to burgers. As their name means they literally smash the burger on the super hot stove. It cooks in about two minutes and is one of the better burgers I've ever had. Heat and intense pressure in fruit juices from beef and make the burger really delicious.

While the restaurant uses expensive and patented press fittings, no home cooking has access, I think there is a way to repeat this crazy way at home.

I'm right It turned out, not to be hard to do, homemade burger, and it is worth all the effort.
