ingredients

directions

  • Put hamburger and water into a mixing bowl, along with any seasonings you like --
  • Mix together (I use my hands) --
  • Divide into fourths, thirds, or halves, depending on how large of a burger you want --
  • Flatten to shape the burgers (I stick 'em between two sheets of wax paper and press with my hand) --
  • Cook the burgers just like you would normally --
  • They will be very soft and hard to handle, so be careful placing them into the pan, or grill --
  • GENTLY flip the burgers when you think they are about half done. They will be firmed up good by the time they are done cooking.
  • Cook til juices run clear (for well done) but do NOT press on the burger while cooking --
  • Works great whether cooking on a grill or the stovetop.
  • Put the cooked burger into your favorite bun with your favorite condiments and,.
  • Say goodbye to dry burgers forever -- .

    I never thought of adding water to ground meat before but this truly made for an excellent moist burger. I added seasonings suggested on another recipe and it was devoured by my teenager boys.

    Thanks so much for refreshing my memory, Dad used to do his this way all the time, they were and still are the best. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been making my hamburgers this way for years and everyone loves them this way. I also like to add about a tablespoon of horseradish to my burgers to perk them up a bit.

    This makes for a VERY juicy burger. I can't believe that the water makes such a difference, but it really does.
