I was wondering if there were going to be a bunch of vehicles with hungry drivers parked in my driveway when I got back from the grocery store. Good thing you guys don't know where I live wink

In deference to my health, and for the good of babies everywhere, I decided to skip the heavenly looking burger above and try making sliders instead. Having never been to White Castle, White Manna, or any of the other famous places I wasn't sure what to expect but initial thoughts are "damn they're good".

I'm trying them a few different ways - first is the White Castle-ish method, with the meat steamed on top of a pile of water-soaked diced onions. Takes a while to cook but really good. I put the buns on top a bit too soon so got some uncooked meat juices on them, but eventually they steamed their way to being cooked as well so I probably won't die.

Now trying what something closer to the White Manna method, with one side of the meat cooked on the grill with onions mashed into the top, and then flipped to cook the onions and steam the meat. Stay tuned for results.

Interesting. I expected the second batch to be better but that's not what happened. The second batch tasted more like small hamburgers while the first batch was melty-oniony-wonderful.

I even followed the recommended "caramelize half the onions before you put the meat on, then mix the caramelized and raw onions together before putting on top of the meat".

Tried both 2 oz and 1.5 oz ground beef sizes - 1.5 oz is better.

I guess if I wanted to be scientific I would make another batch following the first method to confirm that it was the cooking method that made the difference, not the fact I wasn't as hungry.

Maybe for breakfast...

Auggh, just realized that I probably seasoned the first batch but not the second batch.

Now I have to do it all over again smile

I'll help smile

Okay, I want more detail about what you're doing, because I DO love hamburgers. You're steaming the patty on top of a pile of onions? Very interesting process!

Here are the links I used for reference :

First batch (although I didn't freeze the beef) :

Second batch :

CV, grab the DVD for Once Upon A Time In Mexico and flip to the Five Minute Cooking School extra. Best cooking advice I ever heard.
