Not only is it faster to make but it tastes infinitely better and is infinitely better for your health!!!
Buy a one pound steak for as cheap as possible. For $5.49 a pound or less. Cut that into three sections before you put it in your freezer. Break off one by scoring the packaging at that line. Quickly partially haw in a mixing bowl full of warm water. Empty water, cut into strips one inch or so in end profile. Marinate for one minute in olive oil and your choice of spices. I chose turmeric, basil, tiny bit of clove powder, 1/2 t of kosher salt, a squirt of sesame seed oil, oregano powder and rue.
Sear strips in a frying pan until seared and then cook a little more on all sides. Turning by using a $2 salad tongues. Serve on buns toasted in your toaster oven that has a timer. With sharp cheddar cheese slices!
It absolutely can't be beat! You never eat another hamburger in your entire life! Cost of the meat for three good sized hamburgers is $5.49. That is three gourmet lunches a week!!!!! Or $1.83 for the meat of the best 1/3 pound beef sandwich you will ever have!
I serve one hamburger portion of meat on two small buns. Can't be beat!!!
I also intend to post a photograph of my spice rack.
