Everyone needs a perfect burger recipe, and this is my go-to. The fresh honey buns are soft, delicious, and simple to make. The Worcestershire sauce and fresh garlic add just the right combination of sweetness and flavor to the ground chuck. I like to offer a wide variety of toppings on burger night so each person can assemble their own favorite burger.
TIP: The Japanese method of making a "tangzhong" slurry and adding it to bread dough makes for a longer lasting and more tender roll. Cooking a small amount of the flour with liquid helps the flour absorb more liquid. This makes the dough easier to work with and helps the bread rise more, with a finished product that contains more moisture for a tender texture.
