And then, yes, my burger-filled stomach and I did go back to Winterfell.
Method borrowed from All about Roasting
Yields 6 juicy burgers
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 of a small yellow onion, roughly diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 egg yolks
6 hamburger buns
-Preheat the oven to 475 F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread salt over its surface. Place a wire rack on top of the cookie sheet.
-Place the ground beef into a large bowl and break it up.
-Add the salt, pepper, onion, garlic and separated egg yolks. Mix gently with your hands.
-Begin shaping the burgers into 6 patties. Ideally, they'll all be roughly the same size so that they roast evenly.
-Arrange the burgers, a few inches apart, on the wire rack.
-Roast the burgers for 10-15 minutes. If you like your burgers medium-rare, Stevens says they should be anywhere from 130-135; if you like them medium, they should be 140, If you don't have a meat thermometer, you can just cut into one of the burgers to test how done it is.
-Remove the burgers from the oven and serve, creating your own burger spread with lettuce, pickles and mayonnaise or remoulade.
