Best Burger Ever

 Easiest burger ever

I've read a lot on cooking sites about the "smashed" burgers, so I got to do my own version.

Guys, it's so good and easy. 

Get some freshly ground beef; in a perfect world, it should be 30% fat or more. You can spend the money on "ground chuck," but it, as a rule, only has 20% fat, not enough fat for this kid. Talk to your butcher. At 30% fat, you have a scrumptious burger.


  • Ground Beef (30% fat)
  • Larry's Seasoning salt (or just salt)
  • Avacado oil

Preferably, use a cast iron frying pan on the side burner of your BBQ; no side burner, just put the pan on the BBQ itself. Put a bit of oil in the pan and wipe it just to get coated. Turn up and get the frying pan "searing-smoking" hot.

While the pan is warming up, pour a bit of oil on a dinner plate. Make a small ball out of the ground beef, set it on a cutting board and press down with a metal or plastic flat spatula to about 3/8 of an inch.

Flip it into the avocado oil and coat on both sides. I do 3-4 burgers at the same time, depending on the crowd. Then flip the burgers onto the pan and listen to the beautiful sound it makes... about a minute or two on each side. I like my burger about medium.

I served this up with some homemade leftover "Pico de Gallo" that I made last weekend, with fire-roasted peppers (yummy)... add a bit of Gruyere cheese on top of the burger as soon as it comes off the pan... oh so good.

Serve up with your favourite beer, wine or whatever...
