Make the Best Burger from Stovetop

Hi! Friends,

Spring is here. You most likely start to cook on the grill. We all do know that weather can be tricky. You plan on cooking on the grill, but it rains. If your grill is not under any awning or cover, your food can get rained on. What if you don’t have an indoor grill or griddle, how can you get the best result by cooking it on the stove top?

Well, we will find out in this month.

For all mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day!

How to Make the Best Stovetop Burger

Burger tends to puff up during its cooking process. If you are picky about the thickness of a burger, here is a great way to cook it to perfection.

You need a big skillet to cook the burger and a Dutch-oven type of pot to hold the meat down so that it does not puff up. The skillet needs to be big enough to allow the pot to stack inside.

You will make your patties as usual and transfer to a preheated skillet. While the burgers are cooking, add a piece of parchment paper on top before stacking the pot on top. This will prevent the burned grease stuck at the bottom of your Dutch oven or pot.

Depending how well you are going to cook your meat, carefully remove the pot and then the parchment paper. Then, turn patties over and stack parchment paper and pot back on and continue cooking until your desired doneness.

Yes, you can apply the similar method on your outdoor grill. You may want to double up 2 baking sheets together and wrap at least the bottom one around with aluminum foil before use. This will make your cleanup much easier. As soon as the patties go onto the grill, stack the baking sheets on top just like how you do it above.

Is there Burger in Chinese Cuisine?

Chinese do eat burger in fast food chain, such as MacDonald’s. But we don’t make burger with any kind of ground meat and serve as burger.

So, your next question most likely is, “Do they use ground meat in Chinese cooking at all?” Check out the Subscriber's Exclusive session to find out.

Product I Recommend

Ninja Non-Stick Skillet

I love this skillet so much because it is huge and heavy duty. It can go directly into a hot oven without worrying about the temperature limit. I love it so much that I got 2 of them in my kitchen. Yep, they are exactly the same size.
