Meaty all-American burgers are best made with grass-fed beef, which has a sweeter flavor and tender texture. If you don't own a grinder, have the butcher grind the meat on a coarse setting. Serve these with our Beer-Battered Onion Rings as a side dish.
Serve this tender, fall-off-the-bone meat with bread, polenta, or sauteed Swiss chard. You can also present it as a "sauce" by shredding the meat, mixing it with the leftover tomatoes from the pan, and tossing with pasta.
