At the request of the editors, Maurice Fraze shares three pro tips and three recipes for making the perfect burger at home. All three burger types can of course also be served at Steghaus.
How do you create the perfect burger? Three tips from Chef Maurice Fraze:
Tip 1: Don’t overcook the patties, but take the pan off the heat a minute before and cover it (with a lid or a second, inverted pan) Cover the patties directly with cheese and let them boil in the remaining heat. The cheese melts perfectly with the patty. As with steak, you can tell when a patty is done with a thermometer or by checking palm pressure.
Tip 2: Buns can be prepared in the oven at 220 degrees – or you fry them in a pan with butter. Toast the insides only, they will be nice and crispy, while the outside of the rolls will remain fluffy and soft. Butter gives buns a special aroma and serves as a flavor enhancer.
