Our In-House Chef’s Step by Step Guide For The Ultimate Smash Burger

Smash Burgers

Tip 1: Use a good stainless steel frying pan or cast iron skillet

  1. The goal is steady, even heat, so you want to use a relatively thick pan.
  2. Allow time to preheat so pan is evenly warm over a medium heat and then high heat just before adding the smash burger.

Tip 2: Smash early and smash firmly

  1. For smashing your burger use a good strong sturdy metal spatula.
  2. Place onto the preheat pan/skillet, then smash down with the spatula.
  3. Use a second spatula if required to add extra pressure
  4. Cook without moving until a deep brown curst develops. This should take about a minute and a half.

Tip 3: Scrape it all, flip and finish cooking.

  1. The goal is a deep brown crust, so it is important that you scrape up your smash burger all in one piece.
  2. Use a sturdy metal spatula and scrape the crust off the base of the pan.
  3. If your crust has developed and the burger is properly smashed, it should take very little time on the second side.
  4. At this point add cheese if desired and it should finish cooking in about 30 seconds or so.

Tip 4: Finish and Enjoy!

Take you smash burger off the heat and dress your burger to your liking. Serve with a side and a drink. Enjoy!
