Reviews for Good Ol' Burger
"This a delicious, zesty burger recipe. I agree with the previous reviewer, that the consistency is runny. However, they hold together well when you cook them. I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made them. The second time I prepared them, I didn't have any beef broth or red wine on hand. I added 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, which was a tasty substitution."
"Pretty good. I was nervous because the meat mixture seemed so loose but they cooked up nicely. Will be making again."
