Homemade Jr. CheeseBurger Pizza

The heat this week, had us craving burgers, burgers and more burgers, so we stocked our fridge with beef chuck, short-rib and brisket to create the ultimate ground beef.  It's been a glorious week, to say the least!  

But Friday's at the test kitchen always call for pizza!  So, with a pound of beef left, and an excess of burger toppings, it's time to pull out our dough and recreate the infamous "Wendy's Jr. Cheeseburger," Baking Steel style.  

Making Burgers at Home Can Be a Grind

Making Burgers at Home Can Be a Grind

There is no question about it that grinding your burger meat at home makes far superior burgers than even the pre ground meat or pre-formed patties you may already buy from your favorite butcher. 

You can really make the burger taste like you want it to taste like. The freedom to grind the cuts of meat to make your burger really sing is something that more people should be doing. The Kitchen Aid attachment makes this even easier.

This Stone Fruit Pie Will Have You Dazed

This Stone Fruit Pie Will Have You Dazed

One of my favorite times of year is when you go to the farm or market and you just get nailed with the scent of stone fruit, herbs and strawberries. It's times like these that immediately switch on my baker side of the brain and get some creative juices flowing. My wife and I have been trying to cut out as much sugar from our diets as possible and have been finding some great ways to still eat the sweets we all know and love.

If you haven't picked up a copy of "The Elements Of Pizza" yet, I highly recommend you do.  This book elaborates on the idea that the pizza we make at home will always be better than anything we'd get from the pizzeria.  Of course, I strongly agree!  You just need to gather quality ingredients, curate some of the best tools available, and bam, what? Awesome pizza at home!  The at-home pizza possibilities are endless, especially with our secret weapon, the Baking Steel. And, after glancing through the book, it appears Mr. Forkish strongly concurs.

Each week, toward the end of our pizza class, we fire up the Baking Steel Mini and toss a Flank steak on top.  As we are winding down, we slice the steak up and share with all of our students.  They are always blown away by the taste and the simplicity.  A common question is, "how did you season the steak?"
