How to Make Juicy Burgers That Don't Fall Apart

Making delicious burgers that don't fall apart can be a challenge. But with the right ingredients and techniques, you can create a juicy, flavorful burger that won't crumble when you flip it. To make sure your burgers stay together, add an egg yolk for every pound of hamburger. This will help bind the meat together without significantly increasing the fat content.

You can also add canned, drained and shredded black beans or chickpeas to the hamburger. The starch in the beans will help keep the burger together and give it an interesting flavor. When forming your burgers, try not to overwork them or you'll end up breaking the meat into smaller pieces than necessary. We recommend simply shaping the beef into an imprecise hamburger shape with as little manipulation as possible.

Or if you prefer to work smarter than work harder, you can also use a stuffed burger press like the Big Boy Burger Binder, which always shapes the perfect burger. To prevent your burgers from falling apart, keep them cold before cooking them. This will help ensure that one side of the burger is cooked and solid enough to hold the other side in place when you turn it over. Additionally, it's important to use the right heat temperature when grilling your burgers.

A good heat temperature should be able to create a crust on your tasty burger and move on to the Maillard process. Liquid flavorings, such as Worcestershire sauce, are quite common in hamburgers, but at the end of the day, they make the hamburger watery, making it susceptible to breaking on the grill. If you're using cheese in your burgers, it's best to melt it on the buns rather than directly on top of the burger. This will help it stick better and prevent it from falling off when you flip it. Grilling hamburgers is a complicated technique that requires practice and patience to master.

But with these tips and tricks, you can make sure your burgers stay juicy and delicious without falling apart.
