How to Make a Steamed Cheeseburger at Home | Burger Scholar Sessions

According to Burger Scholar George Motz, the Steamed Cheeseburger from Central Connecticut is one of the strangest regional burgers he's ever seen. That's because instead of being cooked on a flattop or over an open flame, the burger and cheese are literally steamed in tiny tin boxes, causing the patty to look like a grey, wet sock... But whatever you do—DON'T JUDGE THIS BURGER! This regional oddity is a true expression of American ingenuity. And now, for the very first time, Motz is going to show you how to make an authentic one at home. Long Live Steamed Hams!
