How To Cook Hamburger

Anyone looking for a guide on how to cook hamburger meat may be surprised by the number of different ways that this versatile and very tasty meat can be cooked and eaten.

From the basic, standard hamburger itself through a range of diverse and impressive meals from across the world there is plenty of choice and a wide selection of flavors and ideas that make this affordable and easy to cook meat a popular choice.

The first thing to consider is the meat itself: traditionally lean ground beef, the better quality adding flavor to the burger, hamburger meat is something that can be served in many ways. Curries, chili's and casseroles all offer themselves to its use, and yet the most popular is the standard hamburger, an item so versatile, tasty and cheap that it has become a staple dish of many a restaurant and diner.

The best way to cook hamburger is to shape it into the traditional patty, using eggs to bind it together and adding finely chopped onions into the mix. For a little extra flavor you could include chopped tomatoes or herbs such as basil, or garlic in small quantities if that is to your taste.

Using a skillet, broil the burger on a low heat and periodically skim off the fat that emerges - this is easily done and even the leanest of meat will contain some fat - turning a couple of times to make sure it is well cooked through.

This is the perfect burger, serve in a bun with fries or vegetables.

If you want to make a casserole you should mix the meat with the ingredients you want to include and cook slowly in an oven, allowing the flavor to work through the mix and adding a taste selection that is very hard to beat.

The versatility of the hamburger is something that is difficult to match, and that's why it remains one of our favorite dishes.
