Celebrating Julia Child’s 99th Birthday

Celebrate Julia Child and the flavors of summer with her Pan-Fried Burger recipe.

Today would have been Julia Child’s 99th birthday.  We’re just as devoted to Julia and her love of classic cooking technique now as we ever were, and celebrate her birthday this year with one of her simplest recipes.  Julia’s pan-fried burger is deliciously juicy and perfect for summer.

Get the easy recipe below, and catch a special episode of Chefography: Julia Child tonight at 8pm ET on Cooking Channel.  Happy Birthday, Julia!

Julia Child’s Pan-Fried Thin Burger

Ingredients
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 teaspoon butter or mild olive oil
1 to 1 1/4 pounds fresh ground beef (preferably 15 to 20 percent fat)
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
Your favorite condiments

Directions
In a small saute pan over high heat, saute the shallots in the butter until soft, about 5 minutes. Divide the meat into 4 portions. One at a time, flatten each by chopping and spreading the meat with light strokes of your chefs knife. Season each with salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the shallots. Blend into the meat, chopping and turning it as you shape the portions into 4 1/2 to 5-inch round patties, 1/4-inch thick.

Toast the hamburger buns and distribute them to your guests. Suggest that they dress the bottom halves of their rolls as they wish while you cook the burgers.

Lightly dust the surface of a large, hot saute pan, with salt. When the pan is very hot, but not smoking, lay a patty in the pan. Rapidly add a second burger. Brown the meat, about 20 seconds. Turn patties to other side. Cook until done, about 1 minute. Remove cooked burgers to a warm platter. Repeat process with 2 remaining burgers.

Place finished burgers onto guests buns as quickly as possible so they can add their finishing touches.
