The ChefSteps Ultimate Smash Burger

Check out The Chef’s Circle Merchandise here!

The smash burger has been around a long time. The core principle is this—take a pile of loosely packed ground beef, lay it onto a very hot griddle, press it down flat as a pancake, and then let it cook almost all the way through on one side. This creates a maximum surface area for a crispy bite and for Maillard reactions to run rampant. But if you want maximum flavor and texture, you’re also going to want a patty that can stand up to all that high heat.
