How To Cook Hamburger Meat

All you need to know about: How To Cook Hamburger Meat.


1. Start with ground beef. Choose lean ground beef with a fat content of 80/20 or 85/15.
2. Preheat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
3. Divide the ground beef into the desired number of hamburger patties. Make sure to use enough beef for each patty to ensure the patties hold together.
4. Place the patties on the preheated skillet or grill pan. Cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until the burgers are cooked to your desired doneness.
5. If desired, top the burgers with cheese during the last few minutes of cooking to melt the cheese.
6. Serve the burgers on buns or over a bed of lettuce with additional toppings of your choice.


1. To ensure the burgers are cooked through, use an instant-read thermometer to check the internal temperature of the burgers. Ground beef should reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
2. For extra flavor, season the burgers with salt and pepper before cooking.
3. For extra juicy burgers, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan before cooking the burgers.
4. To avoid dry burgers, don’t press down on the burgers while they are cooking.
5. For a healthier option, use ground turkey or chicken in place of ground beef.
