Babish made his own buns for this episode—not for me but go off, king—and picked 7 cuts of beef to see which one made the best burger:
- Hanger steak
- Short ribs
- Eye round
In the end, he settled on ribeye and it looks nice and juicy at the end. If you’d like to see Babish make a Smashburger, check out the video as he goes into more depth about each cut of beef he used.
