A Proper Big Beef Burger

I am kind of dissapointed with the state of beef burger today; It fills you up alright but it is not satisfying. The reason is the meat in the burger- There are more other stuffs than meat in a burger nowadays. Worst till, some of the burger patties do not even taste like beef.

Hence, I am creating a proper big beef burger; the one that packed with so much meat that it will make Big Mac or Double Whooper looks like skinny little kid...

Since most of the stores do not sell the burger patty the size that matches the requirement, I have to make it myself. Here is the ingredients:

Mix them into a bowl. Add in 2 tablespoons of Oregano, 2 tablespoons of Thyme, 1 teaspoon of cumin, sea salt and grounded black pepper.

Once it is mixed properly, make round burger patty from it. Here are my three lovely burger patties:

Each weighs ~130 grams and ~ 1 inch thick:

Then pan fry the patty with a bit of oil. Make sure you use low heat, so that the burger is cooked properly. The hard part is to flip it while retaining the shape of the patty. You may find that the burger might not be cooked inside due to its thickness, just pop it into the oven and continue cooking for ~15 mins on 200 degree celsius.

After the burger patty is cooked, melt some brie(cheese) on top. Served with tomatoes, chips, fried egg and salads:

This is how it looks like when I stacked everything together (~7cm tall):

It was quite a feat to eat the stacked burger. I had to open my mouth as big as I can to get a bite of it. This hurt my jaw. Having chips with the burger was a mistake too. By the end of the meal, I was laying on the sofa for two hour with a bulging belly and an aching jaw. Right now I know how an anaconda feels like after a big meal.
