If you’ve never tried Jamie Oliver’s Insanity Burger, this might be your sign to give it a try. The pie is brushed with a mustard mixture and hot chipotle sauce as it cooks, giving it a delicious crust that locks in the juices. While this burger is part of the “review” recipe section on their website, the other burgers are all based on the same simple, one-ingredient cut. Also, Oliver relies on fresh ground (starting to see a pattern, yet?) for flavor. Keep in mind that freshly ground meat can mean up to 48 hours, so don’t feel like you need to buy that meat the minute you start preheating your grill.
Like other chefs, Oliver makes simple burgers with ground beef, choosing to add flavor during the cooking process and with lots of flavor-packed toppings. He also puts the pies in the refrigerator while preparing the other ingredients, and prefers to grill them cold. Finally, Oliver also recommends replacing half the beef with ground pork, as a way to change up this special blend with something a little different.
