Kenji Alt recently emailed us about his latest burger masterpiece: a hand-chopped, dry-aged grass-fed burger that is basted with beef fat as it cooks. Now you can read the method of his madness at GoodEater.org with accompanying photos illustrating the meat chopping and beef fat basting. As his resulting burger was one of the beefiest and juiciest he has ever eaten, he now calls the use of rendered beef fat a "mandatory step in cooking any burger." Go forth and stock your fridge with beef fat, now!
