Holy Cow!

When I make hamburgers, I like to make them from scratch. I usually buy a tri-tip roast or top round, and chop it in my food processor. My Beloved likes to eat the first bit raw; I don't trust hamburger chopped by someone else for raw consumption so I do it myself to be sure it's fresh. He'd probably prefer eating his entire burger raw, for that matter, but he restrains his cannibalistic tendencies while I cook the burgers.

So, here's the masterpiece: Chilebrown's buns, freshly chopped and seared burger, a big slice of ripe tomato, some sautéed mushrooms, a dab of mayo and a frill of lettuce.

Holy Cow, that's good!

Oh, I am so there for that with my own cannibalistic tendencies.

From tri-tip...is there enough fat?

I had some steak tartar that I make myself from some grass fed beef - bought at the Ferry Building. It cost about as much as a gold brick but it was worth it. However, I skipped the raw egg - that would have been a bit too much.

Such a glorious picture of healthy food! Glad to hear you grind your own meat. When we have steak tartare, we finely chop it with a knife; satisfying.

Jann, well, come on down - we can make you one!

Greg, yes, tri-tip is pretty well marbled - that's why it tastes so good - and it makes a nice, juicy burger. You can add a little if you want, but we were happy.

Nancy, good meat is worth the price, even if it does stop your heart for a second. :-) I'm with you - don't need raw egg - but My Beloved would love that, too.

Cookiecrumb, it's quick and easy to chop our own and nice to know it's fresh. Tastes much better, too, when freshly chopped.

Yum, I'm with you, I rarely trust raw or "blue" cooked food not made by me :)
