Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 1/4 Pound(s) 100 percent ground chuck
3/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Ground black pepper
Hamburger buns and desired
Break up chuck to increase surface area for seasoning. Sprinkle salt
and pepper over meat" toss lightly with hands to distribute seasoning.
Divide meat into four equal portions (5 ounces each)- with cupped
hands, toss one portion of meat back and forth to form loose ball. Pat
lightly to flatten into 1 -inch-thick burger, 3 1/2 to 4 inches
across, using fingertips to create pocked, textured surface. Repeat
with remaining portions of meat. 2. If grilling, heat enough coals to
make hot fire. When coals are hot and covered with white ash, spread
them in single layer. Position grill rack and lid-, heat until rack
is very hot, about 5 minutes. Place burgers on rack-, cover and
grill, turning once, to desired doneness as follows: 3 minutes per
side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 minutes on first
side and 4 minutes on second side for medium, and 5 minutes per side
for well done. If pan-broiling, heat skillet over medium-high heat.
When skillet is hot (drops of water flicked into it evaporate
immediately), add parties and cook, turning once, to desired doneness,
using same times as if grilling. Serve immediately with buns and
desired toppings. Cook's Illustrated, July/Aug. 1995, Page 15.
