Grill Out at Your Vacation Home
Burgers, beach, and a cold beer are a perfect combination and a great way to end the day. Most of the luxury homes available through Five Star Beach Properties come equipped with high end gas or charcoal grills, giving visitors an opportunity to flex their culinary muscles and do some casual, outdoor entertaining. The humble burger has come a long way, and foodies and chefs know there are some tips and tricks that can help you grill the perfect burger at home. Be sure to choose a fatty cut of meat. Sirloin or ground chuck with at least 20% fat will guarantee a juicy burger.Â Want even more flavor; ask the butcher to grind the meat for you fresh. Now is not the time for lean ground beef. â€œGo big, or go homeâ€, says one burger aficionado.Â While you are looking for a thick burger and a high fat content, less is more when it comes to actually grilling them. Cook them quickly over high heat, only flip them once and refrain from pressing down on the meat with your spatula; youâ€™ll just squeeze all the juice out. Fresh lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and some cheese can round out your main course. If you prefer to dine out, Emerald Coast locals have varied and strong options on the best burgers in town.
