Posted by on Monday, April 28, 2014, In : Cooking 
Every cuisine type has its own saga and so has the Texas style brisket. Actually, brisket was considered a worthless, useless cut of meat until two German brothers (who were butcher-cum-cooks) cooked some mouth-watering BBQs with leftover beef briskets.

One of the brothers hit upon an idea of smoking a brisket and so he left a beef brisket in the smokehouse for a whole weekend. Returning to work on Monday, he served each of his customers with a slice of the barbecued brisket along with the oth...

As man evolved, the process of smoking for flavour was combined with curing techniques such as those involving salt or brine's. Ribs, ham, bacon and sa...

As a general rule, I do not consider something to be a Hamburger if it doesn't include beef.

It's not that I am against beefless burgers - it's just that they need to be called what they are. They can be "Salmon Burgers", or "Tuna Burgers", or "Veggie Burgers" - and there is nothing wrong with this. Why we have to always try and rename perfect good foods to something more common is beyond me.

How To Make A Really Good Beefburger

Posted by on Saturday, April 19, 2014, In : Cooking 
A really good beefburger has to be made from really good minced beef. If you can, ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you but make sure that it has at least a 20 per cent fat content as this will in effect make them self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don't buy extra-lean mince because they will become tough as old boots during cooking. I like to serve these up in soft baps or muffins...
