Introduction: How to Cook a McDonalds Big Mac (But Better)

This recipe is easy to make at home and you'll be surprised how tasty it is compared to a McDonalds Big Mac.

One of the best elements is the Big Mac sauces, you’ll find the recipe in the video and it tastes amazing!

Step 1: Setup Either a Mincer or Food Processor With the Cutting Blades.

Add diced beef chuck

Diced bacon

Season with salt and pepper

I can’t stress enough how much better your burger will be if you make them from scratch.

Step 2: Pulse the Food Processor for a Start to Cut the Larger Pieces.

Continue to pulse under the meat it minced, if you’re in the US minced meat is called ground.

I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.

Step 3: ​Now the Beef Is Minced, Take a Hand Full and Mould Them Into Patties.

These are thick but just before placing them on the grill I will flatten them out some more

Step 4: ​Next We Are Going to Make the Big Mac Sauce!

In a bowl add:

½ cup of whole egg mayonnaise

1 Tbsp sweet relish

½ Tbsp American mustard

½ Tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp sweet paprika

Mix together and set aside.

Step 5: Next Dice One Onion.

Then slice a hand full of crisp iceberg lettuce into strips.

Cook your bun into thirds.

Step 6: Setup Your BBQ for Direct Cooking

Step 7: Once the BBQ Is Nice and Hot Place Your Burgers on the Grill.

We are

going to cook these burgers for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Flip the burgers, the first side now has a nice sear.

Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, also don’t forget to toast the bun.

Step 8: Layout the Bottom and Middle Slices of the Bun.

Spoon on a layer of our Big Mac sauce.

Follow with a layer of the diced onions

Then a layer of the iceberg lettuce.

On the middle bun, add a layer of pickles.

On the bottom layer a slice of America cheese.

Finally, place your burgers on each bun.

Step 9: All That’s Left to Do Is Put It Together.
