    I bought 2 of the fattiest Woohoo chuck roasts I could find at Kroger over the weekend along with a package of top sirloin that was on sale.
    [​IMG]
    I cut the chuck and sirloin into strips and ground it once using a 3/4" grinding plate. Then the resulting meat nuggets were mixed and reground through a 3/16" grinding plate.
    [​IMG]
    Two 1/2 pound burgers were gingerly patted out from the mountain of ground meat, and conservatively seasoned with flake salt and freshly ground black pepper. Then they were placed in a hot skillet to sear unabated for about 5 minutes.
    [​IMG]
    Once a nice caramelization was observed around the edges, they were carefully flipped, and allowed to continue cooking unmolested.
    [​IMG]
    After a few more minutes the droplets of juices forming on top of the burgers turned a pinkish color and started to glisten. I then added a slice of medium cheddar first, then a slice of Havarti on top of the cheddar.

    Once the cheese's started to droop, the burgers were placed on a buttered and toasted brioche bun, then dressed with crispy bacon, onion, pickles, lettuce, mater, mayo and mustard. They were served with a side of twice fried Kennebec fries and a Pepsi.

    Now that is a burger! Looks great! Have you tried muenster cheese for burgers? A hunting buddy turned me onto it several years ago and now one of my favorites.

    That very well may be the prettiest damn burger ive ever seen.
    Im eatin some burger patties right now at work. But they arent to that standard.
    They are out of a grain fed steer, and they are good.
    But im eatin em out of a ziploc bag that got heated up in the microwave.

    Thanks!
    Those are some of the Pony Express paste maters we canned last summer. The variety has flesh that is dense enough that they will stay just firm enough after canning that using them for a burger topping is possible. A bit messy, but possible and delicious!

    Sirloin was .99 lb so the meal was awfully cheap, and really country this afternoon. Sirloin chop, macaroni and maters, mustard greens, cornbread and cooked turnips. All washed down with ice cold skim milk.
