interesting Technique


why not  do as you do


(  as PB  'Mr Beef' )


suggest some aged beef    or  not  


but  rather than sear at the end


dont do the first fry


save that for the end.


a bit like MC


compare these


then choose.

I'm following the Dave Arnold protocol of fry-SV-grill (but with gas instead of charcoal). The reason I grill at the end instead of just deep frying is that I really like the flavor that comes off the grill. If you bag the burger with butter and drip the bag juices over the grill once it's scorching hot, you get that grilled meat flavor in a short amount of time. Straight up fried burger meat browns but doesn't have those vaporized fat/juice flavors. Here's tonight's progression with the brisket-shortrib-NYstrip blend.






Post fry, pre-grill,



Post grill, pre-bun.






Yep, that's a Kraft single on top. I have some Kerrygold cheese waiting for some sodium citrate and carrageenan to make some melty slices for the weekend. I figured a fried SV grill burger was enough work for the middle of the week.
