I didn't take any photos of it (should have), but I pan-fried two burgers for myself and Michael last night due to it being too cold and snowy to grill them. Now I have never been a big fan of pan fried burgers mind you, but these turned out really good!
I started with making four (two for now, two for another meal) 1/4 pound burgers mixed with a little bit of Worcestershire Sauce and a packet of Lipton onion soup mix (Michael loves this add-on). I just pan fried them for a couple of minutes on each side so they were nice and crunchy on the outside.
For the bun, I used a D'Italiano soft kaiser with one slice of Smoked Provolone and one slice of American. For garnish, I used a slathering of bourbon onion jam (can't even remember where I bought it!) and a slathering of hot pepper mustard that I got at the local Italian market down the street.
Michael claimed that it was the best burger that he had ever had!
While I thought it was a good burger, nothing has been able to top the 'Alice In Pain' burger that I got in downtown St. Pete at Engine No. 9 last year. This little gem is your burger covered with pancetta, sriracha, roasted red peppers, pineapple & sweet chili paste!
As for pan frying the beef. As long as you get the leanest ground beef possible, you avoid a lot of fats the burger itself would be frying in. If you get a less lean beef, then you just have to be vigilent on the regular draining from the pan, etc.
