Our Happiest Recipes Ever

It was a tough job, but we decided to find and taste our way through 25 years of archives to bring you these superlative recipes. First up, our Beefiest Recipe Ever.

The Beefiest

Beefy bliss comes when you start with a flavor-packed cut like brisket and grind the meat yourself. Yes, it’s absolutely worth doing this because the meat is simply more juicy. To keep the meat from drying out, don’t cook beyond medium. Show restraint with condiments and toppings, as we did, so you don’t cover up that meaty flavor: This is a burger for purists.
