Is This Dry-Aged Patty America’s Best Burger? — The Meat Show

– [Nick Solares] What’s so
special about this hamburger is it’s actually made
from fresh ground chuck like all great hamburgers
have at their foundation, but because we’re at Peter Luger’s, because they have one of the
best dry-aging rooms on earth, they also get hefty portions
of trim from the dry-age steaks. Right here we have the iconic
Peter Luger’s hamburger, and the cheeseburger. Peter Luger’s cooks the porterhouse, but they also do a rib steak. So you have all of these
really interesting cuts embodied into this hamburger
along with that really good mouth feel that you get from a chuck. So you have some options, you could have bacon, you could have cheese, but I’m here to tell you that those are entirely beside the point, they’re superfluous. In fact, I think they
sort of get in the way of what is truly brilliant
about this hamburger, what’s brilliant about this hamburger is that you’re basically eating a steak. If you were sat down at a steakhouse, you wouldn’t put cheese on your steak, you wouldn’t put bacon on it, so what I’m suggesting is that
you don’t need these guys. This is like a buxom affair, I
can feel the weight and heft, and when you squeeze it, first of all, you can see the juices sort of bubbly under that, and there’s like a tension there. I’m gonna get in there right now cos I’m sick of hearing
myself talk and I’m hungry. It’s not even fair to
other hamburgers frankly. Doesn’t that look like
the inside of a steak? Let me tell you something,
that tastes like a steak. The first thing that hits
you is dry-aged beef. It’s the same thing that hits you when you walk into the
doors of this restaurant, that smell permeates up
through the building rafters and into the hallway. So when you walk into Peter Lugers, you get hit with the smell of aging beef. But then you get the profound
flavor of the beef itself, and it’s mineral rich, it tastes bloody, it’s tangy, it tastes fresh. It’s got a real vibrancy to it. Interestingly, the finish, you actually taste the
yeastiness of the bun. So it’s really, it takes you on this kind
of sort of on this joy ride of steakhouse evocation. (upbeat rock music) So that delicate texture is really a result of
the way that it’s ground, when you see them grinding it, the meat comes out into
these long noodley strands, that’s a really positive thing. You don’t want to chop it
up and mush it up right? You want it to be these long strands. So when they combine together, loosely packed in a hamburger it really falls apart when you eat it. This burger, like many
things at Peter Lugers, seems timeless but actually
it’s only been on here since the 90’s, which I know for you guys
probably seems like a long time, but for me it was like yesterday. It’s just one of those things that maybe it was the
product of the chop steak, and then somebody put it on a bun. I remember when I first
got this burger it was somewhere between six and eight bucks, it’s gone up a bit in that time, but it still provides an incredible value. You’re getting prime dry-age
American beef for a crazy price. So that’s my Peter Luger’s secret for you, thank you so much for watching, click here for the next episode, and I’m gonna polish off
this delicious hamburger. Uncanny how much like an orange it looks. Oh, look at that. It just comes apart.

    Disgustingly raw!!!!!!!!

  3. Malteser3535 Posted on June 20, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    I'll have one of those next time I'm at Luger's.

  4. Luis Jimenez V. Posted on June 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm

    Good theme, story and produce – but please, this guy's a freakin douche — get rid of him. Why the heck would you put aside the cheeseburger and the bacon?

  5. M Skallywagg Posted on June 20, 2017 at 3:13 pm

    just a tourist trap

  6. Joey Karate Posted on June 20, 2017 at 4:39 pm

    This burger looks delicious

  7. Bill B. Posted on June 20, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    All burgers for Nick are prepared by Bill "The Butcher" Cutting. Is there a level of doneness between raw and rare?

  8. Mariam S Posted on June 20, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    I thought I was the only one that liked eating my burger plain…

  9. Karlos Raver Posted on June 20, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    I've never seen a burger pink in uk

  10. creativmindplay Posted on June 20, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    1:15 what is that raw-ish looking meat on the plate you tried too late to pull out of the shot?

  11. Louie M Posted on June 20, 2017 at 10:28 pm

    what a pretentious 'see you next tuesday'

  12. John Smith Posted on June 21, 2017 at 8:38 am

    1:53 Uh Nick, you got a bit of schmootz on your face right there….

  13. Togg Tlas Posted on June 21, 2017 at 11:31 am

    Sir, how'd you like your burger? Grilled for 0,5 seconds? Seriously? Okay…

    I mean there's rare and then there's raw. This is raw.

  14. Sukanta Mandal Posted on June 21, 2017 at 12:44 pm

    Why does he always review foods from fancy restaurants? What about streetfood. They are delicious too……

  15. sndr Posted on June 21, 2017 at 12:47 pm

    Big fan of Eater but this episode is Bullshit!.
    Stop comparing youre burger with a steak!
    And you can put every thing you like on a burger specially cheese.

  16. Pindi Man Posted on June 21, 2017 at 1:51 pm

    Thanks ….but i like my burger cooked….not just put together and warm

  17. John Eli Posted on June 22, 2017 at 2:40 am

    disgusting, not even cooked

  18. Terry Dolan Posted on June 22, 2017 at 3:03 pm

    How much is that and how much would a meal at Lugers normally go for?

  19. Monique Mitchell Posted on June 22, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    raw meat and blood? no thanks

  20. Zaayz12 Posted on June 23, 2017 at 3:14 am

    There is no way a the best burger isn't made on a flat top. That is the standard.

    idk why but everytime this guy talks he bugs me his accent is weird

  23. Ricky Rocks Posted on June 25, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    why are these videos so short?? 🙁

  24. Audi Driver Posted on June 26, 2017 at 7:19 pm

    I feel like most find dining steak houses burgers are better than their steaks sometimes

  25. Nick K Posted on July 1, 2017 at 9:38 am

    where is the vegetables??!!!!

  26. Lanz22 Posted on July 2, 2017 at 12:32 pm

    Well you wouldn't put bread on your steak either, so this was a pointless excercize.

  27. RobinHoodUK Posted on July 4, 2017 at 9:31 am

    how does dry aged taste "fresh"?

  30. Agentxphile Posted on July 18, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Aint a burger without cheese. Nor do I want a burger that tastes like a steak. But I would devour their dry aged cheeseburger.

  31. Felix Brown Posted on July 18, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    would you have cheese on a steak or bacon….?

    would you have bread with your steak?? naa fam,

  32. Kevin Durant Posted on July 18, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    "Dry aged beef" 5 seconds later: It taste so fresh. Are you hearing yourself?

  33. Momin Fayzan Posted on July 21, 2017 at 9:17 am

    I think that you don't even need a bun it gets in the way of the greatness of it

  34. Lewis Tyler Posted on July 24, 2017 at 12:42 pm

    That's the most perfect burger to bun ratio I've ever seen

  35. VeniVidiAjax Posted on July 27, 2017 at 3:17 pm

    Tangy, profound… shut the fuck up.

  36. Stan Beal Posted on July 29, 2017 at 11:57 pm

    This seems completely pointless to me, burgers were pretty much invented as a way of eating cheaper cuts of meat. Having a dry-aged burger patty with no condiments isn't a burger, it's a steak in a bun. If you want a steak, order a steak.

  37. Manuel Posted on August 8, 2017 at 7:51 pm

    No cheese, no sauces, no salads. Next level Solares is just licking cows alive. The platonic ideal of beef – quite literally, the cow itself.

  38. Sam Alamri Posted on August 9, 2017 at 8:54 am

    It's raaaaaaaaaw it's fu**ing raaaaaw

  39. Ricardo8388 Posted on August 16, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    This guy is sending so many mixed signals. First he eats a cheap burger and says what else you need. What else you want from a hamburger. Later he eats a raw dry aged burger and says thats perfect etc etc. Who wants to eat a steak when im ordering a hamburger. I want a cooked minced piece of beef with cheese not a fckng chopped steak.

  40. jason Posted on August 23, 2017 at 6:47 am

    Dont listen to nick. I just had the burger from peter lugers and it was shit

  41. Joshua Watt Posted on August 25, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    The burger wasn't cooked it was platonic and profound

  42. diegoyotta Posted on September 9, 2017 at 11:00 pm


  43. Pandu Darmawan Posted on September 23, 2017 at 7:28 am

    Give him the impossible burger

  44. Nefarious Cookie Posted on October 6, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    Wow. Tasty :0

  45. Josh More Posted on October 18, 2017 at 1:04 am

    I absolutely would put cheese and bacon on my steak.

  46. TheFirearmEnthusiast Posted on November 11, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    Would you put bread on your steak?

  47. Judi McRae Posted on November 18, 2017 at 6:11 am

    Love your shirt !!!!!

  48. Pete &Pete Posted on November 18, 2017 at 7:07 am

    Crazy price" that bull shits probably $18 😑

  49. Club Soda Posted on November 19, 2017 at 2:19 am

    I'm getting a tattoo that says Dry Aged on my back.

  50. TVStealer Posted on November 25, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    They don't even toast their bun…

  51. Cymbal Posted on December 24, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    Thank you for making me for that buh…burg…BURGER MMMMMMMMMHHHMMMM SO GOOD

  52. Steven Collier Posted on January 12, 2018 at 3:09 pm

    Best burger i ever had was from place called the engine room in mystic, ct

  53. Macy Allen Posted on January 19, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Why does this guy insist on eating his burgers the most boring way possible? People put toppings and condiments on their burgers for a reason. I also don't really like that this restaurant goes to the trouble of dry aging their beef but can't be bothered to caremalize some onions. Who wants a big raw circle of plain white onion on their burger?

  54. Juanito Queintin Posted on January 22, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    Thats wayyyyyy to raw enjoy your colonoscopy

  55. Gabe Posted on February 6, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    if it's just like a steak and doesn't need cheese then just get a steak?

  56. NY ELITE Posted on February 15, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    I’m a big fan of rare or medium rare burgers and steaks but Jesus Christ Nick, that burger may still have a pulse.

  57. Unknown Unkniwn Posted on February 22, 2018 at 2:16 am

    would you put cheese on your steak? well, would you put your steak between buns?

  58. Doc Dug Posted on March 1, 2018 at 12:55 am

    I gotta have cheese, skip the fries and eat the bacon!

  59. E.L Salvador Posted on March 13, 2018 at 6:03 pm

    lol this guy spent a whole video talking about this burger and didn't say a god damn thing of substance about how it actually tastes beyond saying it's got that dry age taste and that it tastes more like steak than a burger.

    He's the reason people often associate being eloquent with being pretentious. He goes on these verbose rants and somehow succeeds very little that's relevant to the listener. It comes across as rather inconsiderate considering he spends a whole 7 minutes on the damn thing and basically spent it mentally jerking himself off.

  60. Buxtonnes Posted on March 22, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    mmmm, sign me up for cancer right now!

  61. DIRRON90 Posted on April 5, 2018 at 6:03 am

    I honestly really like this guy

  62. Jeenius IAMa Posted on April 5, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    The good "old" days of Eater. Nowadays its only k-bbq. k-bbq and more k-bbq ….

  63. sunaxle Posted on April 6, 2018 at 11:32 pm

    What shirt are you wearing?

  64. Terence Grant Posted on April 9, 2018 at 1:59 am

    I drove here from Boston today off the strength of this video (reservations made about a month ago) and it was fantastic!!!

  65. jdtran40 Posted on April 16, 2018 at 6:59 am

    Did he call it buxom? 1:51

  66. Reaper Technique Posted on April 16, 2018 at 11:53 am

    I thought he said he was going to stop talking!!!

  67. Yoshiaki Shii Posted on April 20, 2018 at 6:30 am

    Raw or not, people have things called preferences lol

  68. Joseph Morales Posted on April 25, 2018 at 1:31 pm

    You are so pretentious that I can't take your reviews seriously. That being said, I do like the places you introduce me to.

  69. Steve Logan Posted on April 29, 2018 at 8:50 pm

    You were not the only one tired of hearing yourself talk to yourself

  70. eddie zizek Posted on May 1, 2018 at 8:05 am

    whats so special? they are platonic, iconic and the burger has beefy flavor.

  71. TheTTstudio Posted on May 5, 2018 at 1:38 am

    No Milliard reaction on the bun? Unacceptable.

  72. BRUNO Posted on May 5, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Nicely done. Rare like it should be. Bravo, Nick!

  73. ronald miranda Posted on May 16, 2018 at 2:15 pm

    go eat steak you idiot.

  74. Kevin Lemont Posted on May 23, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Excellent show. Love these!

  75. snasty99 Posted on May 25, 2018 at 5:50 pm

    glad they canceled this show. this guy is a schmuck

  76. snasty99 Posted on May 25, 2018 at 5:51 pm

    also that burger is raw as hell lmao

  77. Charlie Hoover Posted on May 26, 2018 at 11:21 pm

    Most pretentious foodTuber by far and yet I can’t stop watching.

  78. Danny7shop Posted on May 29, 2018 at 4:40 am

    Yeah but a burger is a burger and a steak is a steak. You gotta have cheese on a burger onions etc. If i go to a hamburger joint I expect a burger and if I go to a restuarant for a steak ima get a steak. I dont go to a hamburger joint for a steak!

  79. Otis Whitton Posted on July 20, 2018 at 4:16 am

    All you need is lettuce, tomato, onions, ketchup and mayo to make it better

  80. SuperPussyFinger Posted on August 15, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    This is burger porn, plain and simple. I literally have a boner.

  81. Carr Rexx Posted on August 22, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    I get the feeling there is a motel 6 with no curtains.

  82. Louis Foster Posted on August 29, 2018 at 10:43 am

    Honestly what is wrong with having a piece of meat that isn't a steak for once?

  83. calos pez Posted on August 31, 2018 at 4:35 am

  84. Caguama Time Posted on September 1, 2018 at 4:14 am

    People that describe food are douchebags

  85. MarkVngnz_ Posted on September 3, 2018 at 7:13 am

    Peter Lugers is amazing I suggest anyone traveling around Williamsburg to go and have your mind blown

  86. Otis Whitton Posted on September 10, 2018 at 1:14 pm

    Why are the restaurants always empty?

  87. Juanito Queintin Posted on October 5, 2018 at 6:20 am

    Have you ever had a colonoscopy? Do you know about those

  88. kim macapinlac Posted on October 27, 2018 at 9:34 am

    i love ur shirt

  89. POINT BLANK Posted on November 3, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    I wonder how many times he got sickness by eating that raw meats…

  90. YukiNoHana Posted on November 5, 2018 at 11:41 pm

    Nope to raw looking for me

  91. Aaron Cook Posted on January 22, 2019 at 4:44 am

    So they've taken rotten meat cutoffs, ground them, and then not cooked them through (I love a rare steak, this is GROUND).

  92. og verde Posted on February 2, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    all borgar need cheese

  93. LakeTahoeLifestyle TV Posted on February 28, 2019 at 1:05 pm

    I like my burgers medium rare…but damm that was straight raw.

  94. Cris Escobedo Posted on March 23, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    Looks like uncooked Ground Meat!

  95. Ramp Agent Posted on May 31, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    they are just somethings that don´t go with certain things chese on that burger!!! and those stupid tattoes in this 4 eyes arms.

  96. Alvin Kim Posted on June 10, 2019 at 1:19 am

    Idk how he eats a raw burger

  97. Kayser Soze Posted on July 8, 2019 at 5:57 am

    Why would you put a bread on a steak? Why would you order a burger, if you want to eat a steak? Lol
