Tips from the chef
For perfect cutlets, minced meat is best cooked at home. In this case, the burger patties will definitely turn out juicy and tasty.
For minced meat, beef with fat is needed, you can also add a little fat separately.
Remember to grease the buns with yolk before baking. So they have a beautiful glossy crust and sesame will hold well.
BBQ sauce is universal. It goes well with meat, kebabs, other grilled dishes, and, of course, it is ideal for burgers.
