No thanks.  I prefer real burgers.Those are just monstrosities designed to fill come cooks ego.

I'd rather have a Big Mac than any one of those, and I don't even like Big Macs.

Upon second inspection, I may make an exception for "the slumberjack."  That one I'd probably try.

All I see are buns and fillers. Are there any actual patties in there?

enry: All I see are buns and fillers. Are there any actual patties in there?


Generally greasy buns, fillers, patties made from anything but beef, fried everything, and oozing sauces the color of pus.

No, thanks.

This right here...

There needs to be reasonable meat to bun to condiment ratios. You can't just make a one pound burger and call it "better".

So, was that a typo, or is that how they make "furikake-seasoned" beef?

I don't understand the desire for more than one type of meat on a burger...beef and chicken? lobster? no.  Pick one tasty meat - beef, pork, lamb, venison, whatever.  Add some sort of real cheese (not American), and fresh tasty vegetables, maybe a small amount of condiment to accent, and I'm good.

I will take a burger from Le Tub any day of the week, over these.

Cooks seem to be trying too hard these days. I agree with many of you above, that some of the best tasting and best-looking burgers are ones that keep it simple.

I scrolled down a little further and found a link to another monstrosity.  Here's the Beerger from PYT (in Philadelphia). It features frozen beer that is covered in a wonton, cheese and crushed pretzel breading and then deep-fried.

the secret to the burger is the meat.. I raise my own beef. Whole wheat  toast, lightly buttered, mayo, homemade green tomato relish.half pound of my home raised, grassf fed beef (cooked on a George Foreman grill ). Stack between toast, cut a thick slice of onion for the side, open an ice cold beer, enjoy.

WTF, Europe? Y'all can't make a burger that looks like a burger? It's not that hard...

Billy Liar: Pick one tasty meat - beef, pork, lamb, venison, whatever. Add some sort of real cheese (not American), and fresh tasty vegetables, maybe a small amount of condiment to accent


With all due respect, American cheese is perfect for burgers. It melts evenly, and doesn't separate, like other cheeses.

Reminds me of some bullshiat cooking contest show I was exposed to.  They were supposed to make "chili" and they all ended up with something weird like a hunk of fish on a plate with a sauce poured over it... artistically.

Foodies are farking weird.

I was expecting something delicious looking.  That looks like fried "sack" with salmonella sauce.. Don't ask how I know.

As someone who has tried burgers like that I can safely say your instincts are correct.

"If you like hamburgers you'll love these completely not hamburgers!"

Lamb tartar?

That thing looks like it's drier than the Sahara. A car tyre on some burger fixings.

The Slumberjack could be awesome, with maybe a fried chicken breast instead of beef, or perhaps a sausage patty instead, and just go full breakfast sandwich. Otherwise, way too fancy.

That burger looks great. I couldn't help but think of this though.

Burgers are good.  Surprisingly, a tasty selection of them can be found in a Smoky Bones chain restaurant.  I found this out recently.

My burger is love
Mustard and ketchup are good
Onion with lettuce

I saw a product on TV that puts a hole in a burger so you can fill it up with stuff then cook it. I did like the bacon and mac and cheese use.

If you're aiming for the best burger possible, my view is that it's imperative you begin with the best meat possible.

YMMV but in the Sultanate, that means grass-fed, medium-fat beef. (Optionally organically raised / no hormone cattle but the grass-fed is a 100% no-debate-possible-must-have).

With that as a starting point, though, I feel you really have to ask yourself... how many toppings before the down-side of hiding that fantastic meat flavour outweighs the up-side there of whatever it is that you're piling on?

So for a "perfect burger", it's relatively minimalist. Good cheddar, some sweet onion, corn relish and maybe a touch of nice salsa. Maybe a bit more cheddar. Side order of home cooked fries and an ice cold beer.

Ahhhh...

Shouldn't that be Bambi's Mom?
Also - if it's not red meat, it's not a hamburger.
I did like the Mac & Cheese "bun", that might work.
Slumberjack FTW.

@ knight on the rail   but they don't raise my beef or can my relish.

Missing from the epic meme thread last week, and this one:

2014-03-10 05:53:20 PM
1 lb burger meat

Dice and mix into burger

3-4 strips uncooked bacon
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 onion (optional)

Add, 4-5 tsp of Diana sauce.

Press firmly into patties. I have an old Rubbermaid tool that is used for this.

Cook to preference. BBQ preferred of course. Top with homemade pickles and in my kaiser rolls.

Watch a man destroy what might've been a good burger in less than one minute.

Yeah, that's a duck egg soaked in port wine and beet juice. Because, who HASN'T ever not wanted a runny egg that tastes like beets and port on their burger.
 
2014-03-10 07:04:26 PM
So, "great" means "drenched in grease and far too big to eat like normal food".

Yeah, no thanks. I'll have mine on a clean bun.
 
2014-03-10 09:47:22 PM
Each of the burgers in the article are nauseating to look at.  The only one I might find palatable is "The Bambi," but they'd have to omit the spam first.  Unless you're Polynesian or a Viking, there is no good reason to eat Spam.  It is an unfood.

A simple backyard BBQ'd burger with cheap condiments and a slice of cheese is all I need.  The furthest I've gone from the standard burger was visiting a Hawaiian-themed burger restaurant here in Tokyo, and getting a burger with a ring of pineapple placed inside of it.  Actually pretty damned good.

As for these foodie nightmares, no thanks.  Leave that kind of thing for the Gordon Ramsays of the world (although I suspect even he would turn his nose at these burgers).

Ok, my take on a great Burger.

Take 1/3lb ground sirloin pepper salt and mix in 1tsp melted butter. Grill along with a vidalia slice, 3 radish slices and toast a sesame bun. On the bun compose from bottom to top: a sliced jalapeño, dijon mustard, radishes, patty, onion, lettuce and a tomato.

/Enjoy
//also
///pepper jack and rosemary bacon above the lettuce if you swing that way
 
2014-03-11 03:32:31 AM
ground beef patty, well seared and barely pink on the inside.
Toasted bun ( preferably home-made bread/bun )
sliced fresh onions
Hamburger dills
Ketchup and mustard.

No lettuce, tomato, thousand island dressing, blah, blah, blah.

Yes, I want some fries with that, and a coke.
