Thanks. Served these on Costco ciabatta rolls with some lightly sautéd white onions, sliced dill pickles, thin sliced red onions, homemade spread, arugula and a slice of bacon. They were dripping good. And a coors light to wash it all down.I saved the piece of the flat from my brisket to make some Brett brisket burger later. As usual your cook looks great.
Thanks, Chuck. These were darn good. We joked over dinner how now restaurants are serving up fresh, blended burgers like we make. And I’ll admit I ate two of them because they were so good. So a 12 oz burger at a restaurant would have to be $20-$24. So for 5 of us to eat this meal out would have been over $100 plus drinks.I absolutely love BBQ burgers and those are killing me. Nicely done
The Chuck were two steaks in the pack and I used the larger piece and weighed it. It was 2-5#. Chuck naturally is around 70/30 as a rule of thumb. I also visually choose a chuck the looks 70/30 so I can keep my ratios. Some chucks are leaner or fattier, naturally.Looks good Brett.
Do you weigh the lean meat and fat out, or just eyeball it?
We’re approaching 50° outside which is usually my limit. I did buy some pants to grill in this year if it’s too cold and we want grilled food.Those look fantastic Brett, love a good burger. Especially like your selection of toppings. I've done a mix of point and chuck and really liked it. We were going to grill last night but when it hit 27 degrees it was left over turkey instead.
Brett, Funny you are making Turkey noodle soup. Here's our dinner tonight with another night in the 20sWe’re approaching 50° outside which is usually my limit. I did buy some pants to grill in this year if it’s too cold and we want grilled food.
I convinced my oldest son to take some of the leftover turkey. Now I can make a turkey noodle soup with what’s left and be done with it.
And yes, 27° is waaay too cold to grill in. Smart choice and a good one I’m sure.
thanks for that share. we make a similar "creamy" soup but use russet potatoes and then smash them once cooked as the thickener as we tend to avoid rich, dairy/cream, based soups. I boiled up the turkey carcasses on Friday as the stock base so we'll use that instead of chicken stock. and adding some mushrooms (baby bellas) and mushroom powder (ground dried ****ake mushrooms from the Asian grocer) gives the soup a little more umami flavor. this way i'll have some lunch too for this week.Brett, Funny you are making Turkey noodle soup. Here's our dinner tonight with another night in the 20s
Creamy Turkey Noodle Soup
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 celery rib, finely chopped
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 carton (32 ounces) chicken broth
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup 2% milk
1 cup uncooked kluski or other egg noodles
2 cups cubed cooked turkey
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat; sauté carrot and celery until tender, 3-5 minutes. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add broth, cream and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
Stir in noodles. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until noodles are al dente, 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients; cook and stir until turkey is heated through and cheese is melted.
I have 8# of mostly point leftover from this buy. Note, I asked my Costco butcher if they had a Choice 12# in the back as they were only displaying Prime briskets at $3.99#. Ask and you shall receive. This Choice one was $2.99# and i got the size I wanted. I am looking forward to making this point and minor flat that's still attached to it. Just need an "occasion" to fire it up. And some hungry people to eat it.I saved the piece of the flat from my brisket to make some Brett brisket burger later. As usual your cook looks great.
