August: Cast-Iron Burgers

August: Cast-Iron Burgers

Two secrets to the perfect burger are contained in this recipe: Salt the meat and let rest so the salt can penetrate, and shape lightly into patties that just barely hold together for a tender final product. A horseradish-mustard-mayo-ketchup sauce and bacon-caramelized onion relish for toppings don't hurt, either. These take a bit longer than your standard burger, but the magnificent results are worth it.
