Secret To The Best Hamburgers

Secret to the Best Hamburgers

Okay, I’m going to start this post by bragging just a minute about my husband, Dale. He truly has a knack for cooking the most delicious meals on the grill. Whenever we host a BBQ our guest get super excited when they hear that Dale will be grilling. Everyone raves about his grilled ribs, brats, steaks, pork chops and hamburgers and usually, there are very few leftovers. In today’s post, I am sharing the secret to the best hamburgers.

The first secret to his recipe starts by purchasing a pound of 85% lean ground chuck. Ground chuck is great for making juicy burgers, mouth-watering meatloaf, Maid-Rites, and chili. Fresh ground chuck works best when making these delicious burgers. When I notice that there is a sale on ground chuck I’ll purchase several pounds, divide it into packages and freeze it for later use. 

The second secret is to add wonderful Riley’s Salt-Free All Purpose Seasoning and Worcestershire Sauce to the ground chuck. It’s important to mix the seasonings and Worcestershire sauce well into the meat. You can allow the mixture to marinate overnight in the refrigerator if you’d like (this allows the flavors to blend together more), or you can go ahead and prepare the patties and grill them immediately. 

Riley's Seasoning

Riley’s Salt-Free All Purpose Seasoning

*I personally called the company and spoke with the owner, David Riley. He told me that this product is gluten free, contains no fillers or anti-caking agents, sugars or potassium chloride and that they use the highest quality ingredients to make their products. He also stated that many doctors suggest to their patients who are on a low-sodium or diabetic diet that they use this product for their seasoning needs. Be sure to check out more of their products here.

**If you are looking to make gluten free burgers then be sure to use gluten-free Worcestershire sauce.

The third secret is to allow the meat to reach room temperature before throwing the burgers on the grill and preheat your grill to approximately 400 degrees F.

    Worchester sauce is such an awesome ingredient for the burgers. My secret ingredient is the liquid from beef soup. Whenever I make beef soup, I store some of the liquid and put it away into my freezer. I warm up and add just a little to the ground beef. I feel it gives the meat even more taste.

      Hi Jennings, Wow, what a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Next time I cook a beef roast I'll be sure to save some broth and try your method. Can't wait. Sounds super yummy!!! Linda
