Where I was taught how to live people use fire to put a burn on their French food. This is the Creole method in some places. I have read reviews on burgers cooked using French methods. Some people are confused. I have to read to appreciate French food. This burger is barely browned. I could cook a hamburger in this pan for a longer amount of time to eliminate all browning. A burger with an internal temp of 160°F/71°C using low heat on a steel pan is red but not raw in the middle. The flavor of this grass fed burger was great! A French hamburger can have a lot of flavor. Knowing and appreciating the flavor of hamburger is exciting.
