Hamburgers

A rare burger might sound juicy and delicious, but ground beef cooked below 160F might not kill disease-spreading bacteria and cause food poisoning. You dont need to leave your burger undercooked to get that juiciness you crave. Adding chopped mushrooms and less salt will make for a moister burger, especially if you dont spend too much time mixing them in, says registered dietitian nutritionist Libby Mills, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. If youre incorporating herbs or spices and overwork it, you could easily squish out air pockets, she says. Those little pockets will trap juices. She also recommends searing the patty first to lock the juices in, then moving the patty to a medium heat to finish cooking.
