Friday Night Food Porn

By Kris

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it yet, but I must say that I consider myself a fortunate girl! My husband has many amazing qualities, one of them being that he is a great cook. He can whip up a gourmet dinner like it’s nobody’s business; he will research a dish for a week just to wow me for no particular occasion. He will search from one end of Mass to the other for just the right ingredients for a meal. But, cooking a good burger has eluded him for years. Until now! In his quest for wonderful dinners he sometimes has difficulty keeping it simple. But to me the perfect burger is exactly that – simple. He started with a good ground beef with just the right amount of fat for flavor, added just a pinch of salt and pepper; and then introduced the star of the show, a well seasoned cast iron skillet. After just 3 minutes per side these very palatable patties were perfectly rare on the inside and had a delicious crust surrounding the outside. He just touched the buttered buns on the skillet, and then served.

Finally, the perfect burger!
