What is Burger?

Strong international results drove modest same-store sales growth for Burger King Holdings Inc. in the third quarter, but higher interest on debt took a toll on profits, the company said Wednesday. The nation’s No. 2 quick-service burger chain said systemwide same-store sales grew by 1.6 percent for the quarter, based largely on a 10.5 percent increase in same-store sales in Latin America and a 3 percent hike at units in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

Burger Shopping Tips

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Burger Cooking How-Tos

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.

Wine Pairing

Most red wines, including cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, nebbiolo, nero d'avola, primitivo, barbera, and sangiovese.
