classic beef burger

Ok a bit about ground meat now understand I am a food guru not a cardiologist so if you have health concerns listen to your medical professional first not me but if on the other hand you are in good health and love great food for the one reason that really matters (taste!) than listen up to this word about buying ground meat. Buy the 80-85% not 90% or above. Now the Dr. will say 95% or better but that is the quickest way from a mere cooking point of view to kill any good burger recipe it is the fat that gives it juiciness and flavor the other is merely a copout taste wise all be it healthier for you so they say. I am not sold on that but like I said I am a food person not a healthcare provider so I can say that.

Also the spatula is merely a flipping tool not some demented grease press no sense in buying the good meat if you are just going to squish every ounce of flavor out of it you will end up with dry hockey pukes not gourmet burgers which after all if you are going to eat one it should be the best tasting burger you ever had every time. See I am much more of the mind the next day follow it up with a nice salad or spaghetti squash and don’t feel guilty for eating food that taste great and is less healthy just don’t do it every night of the week is my approach. See at just over five feet I cannot lose sight of the bigger picture or I would be a beach ball but I am not willing to lose sight of the fact that food done right is one of the most pleasurable things we can do for ourselves.

The surround sound is nice but give me quality great tasting food every night of the week and for go the other stuff that is merely fleeting in its impact on our quality of life. Now share that great food with people you truly love and it is just the highlight of the day. Think back in time and how many of your favorite moments feature food in one way or another it is the great social equalizer and is something we cannot get away from so we might as well make it super good. One of the things my family does every night is sit down to the table and eat together not in front of a TV (don’t even have one) and share good food and company with each other and share the events of our day with one another.
