Tonight I worked on refining a recipe for good hamburgers. The American meal.
I cooked one for our daughter (and a small one for our Jack Russell) first. She took a bite and said “Oh my God”. So, I guess we did pretty good. I was then told to ‘take a bite, a small bite’ to try it.
Here’s the Hamburger recipe. Download text of the Hamburger recipe here. It’s MasterCook and MealMaster compatible.

2 teaspoons braggs amino acids — or 1t worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 tablespoon hot water
1/2 teaspoon better than bouillon – Beef
85% lean has enough fat in it to make a nice juicy burger. If you want to
go the leaner route, the burger can easily end up dry and tough and
Mix items 2 – 6 in a large bowl. Mix bouillon in 1 T of hot or boiling
water. Add to the bowl.
Mix in the hamburger in the bowl with the other ingredients. Form patties
and place on wax paper. Put in fridge for 15-20 minutes to firm up.
Fry in a cast iron skillet in butter. Don’t mess with them. Let them
cook and get a crust before you flip.
Rest the burgers for 5+ minutes while you toast the buns in the pan/grill.
