    Best Beef for Hamburger Patties

    ground beef in a bowlIf you want to make the best grilled keto burger, you have to use a high quality beef. It makes a big difference in flavor and juiciness of the hamburger patty.One of my favorite beef companies is one that I grew up eating. My mom and her two brothers were raised on a cattle ranch in Northern California. Jenner Family Beef is now a 5th generation family-owned and operated ranch producing top notch Angus-cross bred cattle. Their cattle are raised on the native pasture grass on the ranch for the majority of the year. For a short period, the cattle are fed grass-alfalfa hay that is grown on the ranch and a small ration of their own ranch harvested barley and oats.jenner family beef logoJenner Family Beef also keeps their cattle for a longer period of time to maximize the beef flavor. Once the cows are ready, they are taken to a local butcher. The beef is aged to perfection to add more flavor and tenderness to the beef.If you are interested in the high quality beef that Jenner Family Beef content them via their website, Instagram or Facebook.

    How to Keep Grilled Burgers Moist

    a bunch of grilled hamburger patties on a plateThere are a couple of different methods out there to prevent moisture and fat loss in a grilled burger. I’ve heard of people placing their cooked beef patties in a shallow dish with beef broth. Some also add a couple of tablespoons of ice water to the burger mixture before forming the patties.One of the biggest way to prevent moisture loss in a grilled burger is to handle the meat as little as possible. When a burger cooks on the grill, the proteins in the meat contract and force out moisture. When you disrupt the proteins by molding them together, it forces out more moisture when grilling. That’s why you should never make a burger mixture with a bunch of other ingredients like onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce because you are basically making a mini dry meatloaf on the grill.

    Best Seasoning for Keto Grilled Burgers

    When it comes to burgers, the simpler the seasonings, the best tasting the burger will be. I like to the let meat shine on my burger. If you use high quality beef to make your grilled hamburgers, you don’t need to add a ton of extra seasonings to your beef patties.Often, the only seasoning I add is salt. But occasionally I will add a steak seasoning to my burgers. My favorite is by Jacobsen Co. It has garlic, coriander seed, paprika, fennel, rosemary, pepper, thyme, and parsley.

    Burger Patty Size

    It’s inevitable that your hamburger patty will shrink during grilling. So you don’t end up with a slider sized hamburger on a regular sized bun, you want to make sure you form your patties one inch larger in diameter than your bun.You can form your patties to whatever weight you prefer. I like to make my hamburger patties into 1/3 pound portions.

    Charcoal or Gas Grill

    Both are great options for grilling burgers! If you are all about the char-grilled flavor, then a charcoal grill is your best option. Grilling a hamburger over charcoals produces additional flavors and an unbeatable char.A gas grill is preferred by many because it is easy to use and get the temperature just right. Plus they are less messy than a charcoal grill because you don’t have to fuss with the coals.
