How to Cook a Perfect Steakhouse Burger with George Motz | Burger Scholar Sessions
Burger Scholar George Motz usually smashes his patties with childlike glee. But today, he has his eyes set on a different prize: the luxurious, thick, dry-aged steakhouse burger! The beauty of this style is its lack of adornments-a juicy patty, cheese, and a sturdy bun, which all help emphasize the beef. In the words of Motz: "Take the upgrade people!" Without further ado, learn how to cook a perfect steakhouse burger at home!

    George, Have you ever heard of the “Screamers” and “Fluff Burgers” from Tony’s Lunch in Girardville, PA? Small lunch counter turned Coal Region staple serving up burgers with home made hot chili “Screamer” sauce and Marshmallow Fluff (even the menu says “Don’t knock it til you try it!”). Pairs well with fresh cut fries and a few 50¢ cafeteria style cartons of chocolate milk. This place defines what your videos are all about with hyper-regional burgers!

    I vacationed in nyc when I was younger. I was on the lower west side and tried going to the Minetta Tavern, thinking it was a bar. The door person said I couldn’t come in wearing shorts. I was like lol k. Didn’t realize until years later that that was a legit, worth going to restaurant.

    Please have George check his flat top, the only way that pop would have happened is if gas built up somewhere and then popped. Those cast iron pans are heavy itd take a lot of energy to make it do that. We all love George and I dont want to see him get hurt in a burger accident.

    Can someone enlighten me, if I where to go out my way to get a dry-aged steak and chuck then grind them to feed 6+ people would it be cost effective? 50$+ for a single steak is weird for me since I know nothing about dry-aged and been using Korean Style Waygu semi thin slices of steak when I want to make special burgers. (Sorry if I'm confusing English isn't my strong suit)

  • Marco2G

    I find most people put so much effort and attention into the patty and then slap it into some cardboard tasting bun. I mean sure, there is no bread culture in the US but come on... People talk about the care that's put into raising the cows, treatment of the meat, and when you're lucky, you don't get plastic wrapped cheese smacked on it. But the bun? It's as if it was irrelevant... Personally, I'd prefer if you served me that burger without a bun at all than one you just pulled out of a plastic bag.

  • ShamZilla

    Anglos love some raw meat.

  • Marco2G

    That 45-50$ piece of steak would cost 100 Swiss Francs in Switzerland... that's more than a 100$... I do admit however, that it looks great.

    In the kitchens I worked I would be slapped for those onions. They’re the old stuff but guess it depends on flavor people like but it’s usually a “no,no!” But after that the burger looks delicious even for being simple! Love the vid

  • yuoop noke

    Can you imagine how chaotic an episode would be with George and Matty Matheson


    This is a mofo burger, no doubt. But if you want a cracking treat on the road next time you hit up Maccas get yourself a double quarter pounder with cheese and no sauce. They have to make it fresh and without the sugars from the condiments the beef patty flavour is amazeballs, greasy to the max. Try it out people. Unless you have a 50 buck aged steak at home and a grinder, then do this recipe.

      That griddle had a weld let go, the metal got hot warped and it poped the weld. At least that's my guess.
