Babish makes steakhouse burgers

Steakhouse Burgers | Basics with Babish

I love Five Guys* but when I need to stop my bank account from gently weeping, I like to make my own (as best I can). That’s why I was excited for Babish’s video about making steakhouse burgers.

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
  • Sirloin
  • Chuck
  • Brisket
  • Eye round
  • Ribeye

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.
