what’s the best kind of meat to use to make good burgers? Ground round, beef, sirloin??

I just made burgers on my gas grill and I tried to get the "best" meat so I chose ground sirloin 90/10. It tasted funny/fatty. I made some last week with ground beef 95/5 and still not the best. Should I be using ground round? I thought it was lower quality so I avoid it. Help!!! I have no cooking skills and awesome new gas grill! I can make hot dogs well so far thats it!!!!!

Your problem is the avoidance of fat!
Mix about half groud round or ground sirloin with regular ground beef. With out a little fat the burgers will be dry and tastless.
Take out all the fat, you take out all the flavor.

    I know this sounds horrible, but I always found that sirloin didn’t have enough fat conent to taste like a real burger. Use ground round, it will give you the best taste.

    JUST GET A LOW FAT GROUND BEEF. YOU NEED TO SEASON IT VERY WELL THAT WILL STOP THE FATTY TASTE,ALSO ADD SOME CHOPPED ONION TO IT BEFORE COOKING.

    Sirloin is too high quality to make a good burger. Get ground beef and look for around 80/20 or 85/15. That will give you a nice tasty burger. Save the sirloin for steaks.

    I make Turkey burgers with Worchester Sauce mixed into the ground turkey. They are less fatty and come out really juicy. I just found out I can’t eat beef so I had to switch to Turkey.

    TO understand how to make a good hamburger, you must appreciate why it was created. It was to take a tough meat and make it more chewable. The round are tough, but flavorful. They ground it to break the meat up so it can be used. THe reputaion of round being cheap is that it is a tough meat. I don’t know why people thought sirloin would make a good burger, and 90/10 is too lean for a good burger too.

    For making burgers I always buy ground chuck. For cooking on the grill you want a grade that’s got less fat in it to avoid too much dipping of fat on to the coals. When you prepare the burgers, put in a lot of bread crumbs either plane or Italian style bread crumbs depending on your personal taste. If you don’t have bread crumbs you can smash up ritz or saltine crackers in a zip lock bag. It’s good to use one of these dry ingredients because it absorbs some of the fat and juices and so it will drip less and it also makes for a better tasting burger because it’s less dry. Also when preparing your burgers add a small amount of minced onion (chopped very finely), bread crumbs, salt and pepper, and then after you’ve made the patties put them in the fridge for a few minutes. They will stay together better and will be easier to handle.

    You obviously do not understand soccer. Because TV makes Baseball, NFL, and NBA (low hoops for giants) look appealing they are popular in the states. Soccer/Football rules MIKE.

    Step outside USA and into the rest of the entire world and you will see. Latin America, Africa, Asia, Middle East, and Europe what they all crying for? SOCCER 🙂

    F1 is an intelligent racing spot. Unlike Nascar round and round and round and round the same track. Come on MIKE stop being a hater 🙂

    Just one note, …it was Robbie Robertson OF The Band, not Robbie Robertson AND The Band as described above. That’s the exact image he, and only he cultured. If anything, he was the least talented of the group. Sure he could play some rhythm guitar but as a singer, he was awful. As for his songwriting abilites and credits, …dubious at best. None the less, The Band’s body of work was both ground breaking for it’s time, and the stuff of legend today !

What you really want is a president who surrounds himself with the smartest people, the best economists, scientists, political theorists, etc… no single person has the expertise to run a country. In the end the system is so broken no one is able to make any changes anyways, so actually I couldn’t care less if Palin won.

    I also hate, hate HATE the bodybugg food log. I just don't use it. I use the BB site to factor out my calorie burn and use the Daily Plate for calories eaten (this allows me to better track carb/protein/fat balance than WW). I'm a smart girl, I can do my own math *wink* but it does seem like the BB site subscription is a waste of money when I only use 1 component of the site.

    Beer Braised Mini Sausages 2-3lbs of mini sausages (from costco) 2-red bell pepper cut into strips 1-yellow or orange bell pepper cut into strips 1-bottle or can of beer. Lager or macrobrew works best. 1 tbsp Cider Vinegar Put sausages and peppers into a wide pan. Pour in beer. Cook over medium-high heat until beer sauce starts to thicken and glaze the sausages. Turn off heat and add vinegar. Stir and serve. I usually put this on after the party starts so that it’s hot and ready about when the party is at it’s peak.

    Did something similar with a yellow jacket last October. I was standing in line for my employer’s annual Low Country Boil, with a plate in my hand. Swatted at the yellow jacket, hit it with the back of the plate, and it was knocked to the ground. Walked over and stepped on it.

    Unfortunately, it is the elbow variety. I will admit that spirals or shapes are better, though. My mother’s frugality rubbed off on me and I can’t justify the extra $0.30 for the fancy kind (although every once in awhile I buy myself the kind with shapes – along with some lunchables to spoil myself). Soo good… Mmm…
