If you want a juicy hamburger, it helps to restore some of that lost moisture. The easiest way is to add water or some other liquid to the burger mixture. We’ve found that 2 to 3 tablespoons of ice-cold water mixed into a pound of ground beef greatly increases the juiciness of grilled burgers.
Should I add egg to hamburger?
Adding egg to your ground beef will make the cooked meat seem more dense and the juices won’t flow when you bite into it. The texture will be more like meatloaf than a burger. It won’t be as dense as meatloaf, no breadcrumbs, but you’ll notice the difference. Cook them both and give them a taste.
