  • Cube up your fresh chuck steak with a sharp knife/
  • Put it in the meat grinder twice to get a more smooth texture.

  • Chop a bunch of parsley and chives and mix it together with butter.
  • Season with salt and pepper and wrap it in a small sheet of baking paper for easy storing.

  • Fire up your grill. I'm using a Napoleon gas grill and i'm heating up my flat top griddle plate.
  • Stick your Forged Flambadou in a pile of hot charcoal or a fire where it can become extremely hot.
  • Toast your burger buns with some butter on the griddle plate.
  • Start smashing your beef balls on the plate with the burger press.
  • Let it sear for around 2 minutes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Flip the burger when you have a dark brown texture on the bottom and sear for another 2 minutes.
  • Take out the hot flambadou, add a slice butter and let it melt inside the the flambadou.
  • Let the melting butter drip onto the burgger patty.
  • Put the cheese on top of the seared patty.
  • Start building your burger with some of that Big Mac Sauce.
  • Add some lettuce, put 3 slices of tomatoes on.
  • Layer the the first patty on top along with the second patty with some sauce in between.
  • Finish with the fried onion and smash the cap on top.
