I read the Guardian and all its foofoo, which I somewhat get.

Anyway, there's a recent article on burgers.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2012/aug/29/how-to-eat-burgers?commentpage=4#start-of-comments
I' ve been reading along - this gives me a more global view than from west Los Angeles.

The article brings a wave of my hand, but I like delving into the comments section.
You may not, it takes some patience - but very interesting.

@ossobuco,
This part, they got right.

Quote:
The hamburger is a sandwich. A handheld snack. It is crucial, therefore, that it retains its structural integrity to the last mouthful.


I do not understand why they bring up terms like "pink", and "20% fat.

By the way, real burgers have all garnishments on top, unlike the creation they chose as an illustration.

@roger,
The comments include many points of view. I suppose I'd place yours into a classic fear of pink mode of some past years, newly correct because of manufactured patties.

But, there's more.

It would never never occur to me to place a slice of beetroot atop a burger.

@ossobuco,
Beetroot? Kind of makes me glad I didn't get that far into the comments.

I'm aghast that I can't get a medium rare burger (I prefer rare in good places) here in any of the cheap **** restaurants in Albuquerque.

Liabilty rules.

Take a good piece of beef and grind it yourself and you'll be ok.

I'm so sorry I tossed my aunt's meat grinder.

@roger,
Pink. Why are they talking about overcooked burgers?
