And that's not even considering that ground beef is pretty flavorless when cooked. Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's because I worked at McDonald's for four-and-a-half years and have been rendered incapable of tasting beef from both cooking it and eating them for so long. But I find that hamburgers in general are only worth ordering if you like the taste of the toppings. It's not like a good steak, where you can pick off onions and ask the chef to go easy on the pepper if you don't like those things. Oh sure, on the odd occasion that I still order a McDonald's double cheeseburger, I still get it without the onions, but if I also hated ketchup and pickles, and couldn't tolerate mustard, I'd really have no reason to eat one. Hamburger meat by itself, just isn't that big a culinary treat. Now you can make some good sloppy joes and meatloaf, and do not for a moment suppose that I'm including steak and prime rib, or even pot roast in this conversation; but at this point, a hamburger is just a meat slab between buns, and whatever toppings and sauces you find tasty.
I'm no culinary expert, so I can only surmise that ground beef is the least of all beef cuts and that the grinding process only makes them worse. They're still passable, but the point is, really, stop trying to "revolutionize" the hamburger. The only way to really revolutionize it is basically convert uncooked meatloaf into patties and grill 'em that way. And even then, no guarantees that that would work. The hamburger's pretty good the way it is. Of the three I mentioned at the beginning, the Royale is easily the tastiest.
Mainly because one of the toppings is a sunny side-up egg.
