Grounding Your Own Meat
When it comes to making the perfect smash burger, grinding your own meat is essential. It ensures that the texture of your patty is ideal and that all the flavors come together in one delicious bite! To make sure my meat was as fresh as possible, I ground it myself using an electric grinder attachment on my stand mixer. This made sure that all of my ingredients were evenly distributed throughout each patty. Plus, it tasted amazing!
Forming Perfect Patties
Once my meat was ground, it was time to form patties. I used a half-pound of 80/20 chuck beef and formed 16 individual quarter-pound patties. This ensured that each patty had enough fat content for optimal flavor and a succulent texture when cooked. It also allowed me to keep track of how much each patty weighed so that I could ensure they were all cooked evenly on both sides.
Once everything was done, my balls were now ready for smashing! Using two flat spatulas (one in each hand), I smashed each patty onto the cast iron skillet until it was thin and crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside. After flipping them over once more, they were done! The result? Deliciously crunchy smash burgers with just the right amount of fat content and flavor. Yum!
