Have you ever eaten a hamburger which tastes and looks like a
flattened out. beaten down, charcoaled piece of putty? There are two
reasons why a hamburger looks and tastes like this. First, the right
cut of meat is not being used. Ground chuck of good beef is the best
for making hamburgers. Other cuts have a tendency to dry out and
shrink up. Secondly, don’t smash your patties flat and thin, leave
them fluffy and moist with very little handling to form them. When
frying or broiling them don’t cook them to death, you want them to
retain their delicious juices and flavor.

your favorites among our fine sausages, cheeses and meats We
