I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was when I saw that 5 Guys Burger had opened in the UK. I hadn’t had a 5 Guys burger for at least five years.
I loved the burgers so much and even worked there for a while. This 5 Guys burger recipe is as close to the real thing as you can get.
Over the past few weeks I have been writing copycat recipes of some of my favourite American burgers and no burger series would be complete without a 5 Guys burger recipe.
I’m telling you, they are melt in the mouth gorgeous.
What makes 5 Guys so good?
That’s down to the fact that they use only the freshest ingredients. 5 Guys may be a big burger chain but they don’t skimp when it comes to freshness.
So today I decided to make my 5 Guys burger recipe so that I could show it to you.
Believe me, it is just as good as the real thing. I even used my own homemade burger buns right out of the oven. How’s that for fresh!?
5 Guys don’t season their burgers with salt and pepper. At least not that I noticed. Instead they use the finest quality ground beef and let the beef do the talking.
I normally insist and seasoning a burger but at 5 Guys they just don’t need to.
Just like other popular burgers from famous restaurants, 5 Guys have a precise way of stacking their ingredients. The idea is to ensure you get a nice dose of each flavour in every bite.
Here I have used 28 day aged ground chuck and skirt steak, 80% meat and 20% fat. If you can have your butcher grind the meat for you it will be better than anything you can get at a supermarket.
You will need three pieces of grease proof paper.
