Cheese Burgers with Home Ground Beef

edited April 2012 in EggHead Forum

Friday I was craving a good home made cheeseburger all day long. Sometimes you get a craving and you just can't ignore it. We were out of meat, so I had to run to the store to get some. Decided on a mixture of chuck and beef short ribs.

Went on to the Egg at 500F and when they were almost done, got topped with some cheese.

Plated up (or basketed up) with some curly fries.

    Great looking burgers and great blog.

    One of these days I'm hoping someone will risk getting burger juices all over their camera and cut their burger in half for a cross-section shot!

    Griff,

    My wife just ordered the meat grinding attachments for the Kitchenaid mixer. I can't wait to make my own burgers. Short Ribs, flap meat, and chuck are on my "blend" mix.

    Your pics have me more fired up now. Thanks for posting.

    Chalk it up to one of the pitfalls of a good blog - demanding, entitled readers!

    Forgot to ask: Those buns look fantastic - what brand? Did you brush them with butter to get that gloss?

    Brisket point makes awesome burgers! it's the only use I can think of for the 3-4lb packs that have been trimmed within an inch of their lives. There is a place in Ft. Worth owned by Tim Love called The Love Shack and they do 1/2 brisket 1/2 short rib burgers. Ambulances standing by!

    Eggbertsdad- Sweet!! You are gonna love grinding your own burgers. I keep hearing about flap meat, but have never seen it. Need to find a good butcher around these parts.

    KR - like stike said earlier, you can demand all you want, but that don't mean I'll do it. But for you, I'll try. ;) Actually, I'll try anthing anybody asks (with in reason) As for the buns, those were from the bakery section at my local Tom Thumb. I sprayed them with some Pam (both sides) just before going on the grill..

    Cen-Tex - brisket is on my list for the next batch of ground meat. I've heard of his Love Shack, seems to get mixed reviews, and from what I've heard, he's too busy being a celebrity now to bother coming in to either of his restaurants, but that's all hearsay. Would love to try it, though.

    Griffin- I would say the mixed reviews are warranted.1st, it's a total dump with no indoor seating. 2nd, the burgers are so tricked out and rich that you need a 4 hour nap after eating one :) Flavor was really good though. Just a little over the top.

  • Total dump is a bit strong. It's an outdoor place with no AC and we ate there in August. Super rich burgers and 110 degree heat do not mix. I felt like Ron Burgundy when he was walking down t he street in the summer drinking a warm carton of milk..................."this was a horrible idea":)

    Worth a try though but get there before it gets too hot.

    Griffin- I know flap meat is part of the bottom sirloin but I'm not sure what other names it goes by. It is similar to skirt steak but more tender.

    OK, We've picked up something called Hanger steak. Similar to Flap?
    I know we have a butcher on here somewhere.

    Bx - > NJ ->TX!!! 
    All to get cheaper brisket!

    I love hanger steak. I marinate it in chimichurri (sp?) and quick sear it....OUTSTANDING!
