Wow, after starting this burger question I was really expecting to see folks saying well done burgers in this day and age! Just shows me there's lots of people with good tastes still out there! Now just convincing my local burger joint medium rare means just after the mooing stops, and not curling over and dried out! Thanks!

Actually, I like hamburgers fixed any number of ways. My preference is one char broiled over an open flame to medium doneness, and served on a fresh bun with a slice of softened cheddar, bibb lettuce, garden tomato and salt.

The grill is the best of course, but pan fried is fine by me.

I like my hamburger with mayonnaise,cheese, onion and sweet pickle on a toasted seaseme seed bun.Three strips of bacon is a big plus. Ketchup and lettuce is OK. Never mustard or tomato. Never.

I forgot two important details, I want the meat well done, and I like a generous amount of soysauce added to the meat.

i love mine right off a grill in the dead of winter....warming yourself by the fire and eating it straight from the tongs...while sipping a can of beer you kept cold in the snow.

Lettuce, tomato, sweet onions and double mayo.

I also found that by slow cooking in the pan makes the burger more tender.

Ahh Renfrew, what a fine fellow you must be. Welcome to the winter griller's club. From whence do you hale?


Grilling in FLA when it's "winter" is crap. Grilling in Buffalo in Feb, that's another story.


HA! 10am Sunday here in Michigan. Light snow falling, 23 degrees and the charcoal is burning down to do it's thing! Nothing beats an outdoor cooked burger in the dead of winter!

Char-grilled choice sirloin, 15%, medium rare, seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Good bread is essential. I prefer a good kaiser roll, bottom lightly toasted, top placed over the patty after it's flipped and the cheese is added. Dressed with grilled sweet onions, roasted red bell pepper, American or cheddar cheese, ketchup, and fresh vine-ripened tomato. Sometimes, according to my mood, I'll add mayo, or mustard, or avacado, or any combination of those condiments that strike my fancy.

Good article about having your burger RARE.

Michael Hoffman will probably appreciate this...

As I have said before, there are two types of people who do not eat meat: those who are vegetarians, and those who eat it well done.

I too like my burgers rare with grilled onions and mushrooms straight on the burger them provolone melted, grilled bun. Depending on my mood I either dress it up, naked as above. I also love raw burger and if preparing burger for anything I'm constantly pinching myself off a bite here and there only to turn around to find husband with hands on his hips, "STOP THAT!" To which I reply: "Hey, I can't help it if you like your meat tastelss and BURNT!" If I grill stuffed burgers then I'll let them go to a medium rare to medium to cook what's inside a bit.

I did appreciate it.

You know, it's amazing how it has become so difficult to get even a medium rare hamburger these days. A few years ago the Waffle House started making people sign a note saying they won't hold Waffle House responsible for illness if they agreed to serve you a medium rare burger or patty melt. They stopped doing that after a while -- probably because they finally realized that such a note wouldn't be legally binding. But around Central Ohio the only place other than Waffle House where I know I can always get a burger done medium rare, even rare, is a chain called Max & Erma's.

What I really love is a rare rare burger with blood oozing slowly, then piling on half a bottle of ketchup to increase the gore factor.

Something about half-raw meat with tomato just make my blood boil.

I think I'm feeding my inner cave-woman.

We always called raw ones, not rare ones, cannibal sandwiches.

Raw burger or burger not well cooked is a quick way to E Coli. I will guarantee you that if you are unlucky to consume this bacteria, at best, you will feel terrible. Worst case is that your off to paradise.

Although years ago I used to eat raw hamburger that I purchased, these days I only eat raw chopped meat that I have ground myself. As to rare, well, I'll take a few days of being sick if that's what I have to do to not have to eat well done hamburger.

I have only had locally raised organic ground beef over the last few years or, like Michael, have ground my own beef from smaller distributors. No mass-supermarket trash. The chances of being sick are next to nil. E-coli, not salmonella, is simply not likely. In fact, it has not been reported at all under these traditionally raised conditions. I would have no fear of any parasite or other food-borne illness by eating my organic beef raw -- if I chose to. As it is, I make the best RARE burgers without any hint of detriment. All folks get from my burgers is sheer joy of eating a food that evokes the past in an age of fast foods and supermarket glut. All are welcome to eat at Grampy's (Rob's).

Dearfolk,
The night manager at Peaches Records in Atlanta, Ric "Burgers" Burnett, always ate the same thing: burger, well-done on a toasted-dark bun, no lettuce, no tomato, no cheese... just bread and meat. "Well done," he'd smile cordially. "Thanks."
Another fellow I met later did roughly the same thing, but always drank a Bud Light to wash his burger down. He went to New Orleans and complained about the food and to Germany (his poor long-suffering wife utterly dragged him to both places) and complained about the beer. I guess he's just what you would call a "late adopter."
Unhungrily, Ort. "Medium-Rare, All-The-Way" Carlton.

I've heard of a place on Galveston Bay, Gilhooley's Raw Bar, in San Leon, an oysterman's hangout and biker's hangout, no children allowed. Famous for their oysters on the half shell, smoked oysters and rare burgers. Supposedly, if you ask for a rare burger they'll ask whether you want it 'warm rare' or 'cool rare.'

Lemon pepper both sides, medium, grilled, but pan fried is just fine, on a large toasted onion bun with ketchup, mustard and relish, then smothered in pan fried onions with bacon brumbled on them while browning. Washed down with a Rolling Rock or cherry 7-Up.

Organic has nothing to do with getting E-Coli. No matter who you purchase from, the danger comes from contamination of feces from the stomach. If you slaughter the animal yourself and are extremely care, even that does not contain the bacteria. Only carefully cooking alleviates the poison.

Enjoy your beef or burger as you wish but you have to be aware of what you give to others.

RARE,on a onion roll w/ 'Branson Pickle',which is a relish-like condiment usually available only in British specialty shoppes....perhaps a slab of colby cheddar....I am beginning to swoon!

Montreal "brand" makes hamburger seasoning now too. I've been able to get it in Shop Rite (East Coast) - it's really really good IMHO. Not too salty and a nice flavor. I've said this like 3 times already-but sprinkling with this and using Lone Star's method previously posted is outrageous.

I like my hamburgers with all sorts ways except well done but my favorite is: Fresh ground with a litle course salt mixed in. Cooked on the grille Rare, a slice of cheese on a fresh bun slightly toasted. A thick slice of home grown tomato and Vadlia onion and ketchup. Then after the burger a nice ear of silver queen soaked in water and gilled in the husk with butter and salt and pepper.

LOL@curling and dried out!

I always add salt and fresh cracked black pepper. If I add garlic, I like fresh, minced garlic. It has to be med for me, pink in the middle. I sometimes add alittle ground italian sausage too, for a change.
