Chilebrown at home

We are having a heat wave. Here in the Bay Area when the thermometer rises above 80 degrees we begin to panic. Our house broke the century mark yesterday. We have maybe a dozen days a year when it gets this hot but even then it is not normal for us heat sensitive Bay Area residents. We reside next to a tidal bay which provides a natural air conditioner. Does it sound like I am whining about a little heat? Okay, you got me this time. We did have some great brisket burgers which we purchased from  R & R Quality Meats and Seafood

This beef had a beef to fat ratio of 80/20 which I believe is perfect for a burger. You need some beef love (fat) for flavor and moisture. I return to my heat excuse and this was a lazy cook and was done on our trusty black iron pan in the kitchen. This burger was cooked to just before medium where you can still just see a hint of pink in the center. It way juicy and beefy just as expected. It was perfect for this warm day. We are having a heat wave.

We love the Oregon coast. If you make it to the Portland area be sure to pick up some Secret Aardvark hot sauce.

One of our butchers does brisket burgers and I always grab a pack or two when he has them. Yours are making my stomach rumble right now.

Chris, Unfortunately this butcher is three hours away from the abode. Otherwise I would buy these more often.
