Pro Tips:

Ground Beef: The juiciness of your burger will be unparalleled when you use 80% lean beef. The higher fat content also means that it won’t dry out as quickly on the grill, which is great for those who love their meat juicy!

Avoid Overmixing: To get a light and fluffy burger, don’t mix the ground beef too much.

Use The Right Temperature: Cook your burger patties over medium-low to high heat. This will keep them juicy and not dry out too quickly, which is ideal for eating on the go!
