Need burger tips?
Deconstructing the Perfect Burger,
published in the latest issue of the New York Times food section, provides a great overview of how to select and cook a great burger. Their recommendations are exactly in line with what you’ll find at Ranch Foods Direct.

Excerpts include:

“… allow rendering beef fat to gather around the patties as they cook, like a primitive high-heat confit. The beef fat collected in a hot skillet acts both as a cooking and a flavoring agent…”

“The traditional hamburger is made of ground chuck steak, rich in both fat and flavor, in a ratio that ideally runs about 80 percent meat, 20 percent fat. Less fat leads to a drier hamburger. Avoid supermarket blends advertised with words like ‘lean’…”

“… have a butcher grind your meat, asking for a coarse grind so that the ratio of meat to fat is clear to the eye….”

“The bun-to-burger ratio is incredibly important … You want a soft bun, like a challah or potato, but whichever you use, it shouldn’t overwhelm the burger. They should be as one.”

Ranch Foods Direct has the goods!
