Best Burger at Home
Great Burger Mix
Making Your Own Hamburger Meat
What's Lobel's favorite hamburger mix, and do you have any opinions on the subject?
And while we're at it, besides yourself, who do you think serves the best burger in NYC?

I'm sure there are lots of opinions on this topic. There are simply so many combinations that people swear by. At Lobel's we mix ground chuck for juiciness, ground sirloin for texture
and ground filet mignon for richness. With an ideal fat content of
between 15 and 20 percent, you'll serve hamburgers that your family and
guests will never forget. And if you want to try something outrageous, give ground hanger steak a whirl.
I think mixing your own burger meat at home is a great idea. When doing this, you are in control of everything from fat content to cuts of meat to getting it in the refrigerator as soon as possible.
I have to tell you that itís not to often I go out for a burger, but the last one I had was at The Jackson Hole, real fatty and sloppy....yum!
