I don’t consider myself to be a hamburger expert, but I do have a few suggestions. I hope you all will share your tips in the comments.
- 80% lean beef has enough fat to give flavor and moisture. 85% does okay, but 90% is a bit too lean.
- Handle the meat gently. Do not use a lot of pressure when forming the patties and don’t press on the patties while they are cooking.
- Adding moisture to the raw beef can help make the burgers more moist. You can add water, broth, or vegetables that contain water such as onions or cabbage.
