in thread How I like my steak:

We have a burger place here that will serve medium rare by default. They also do well done if you tell them to, but it's only because one year the health department came by and said they couldn't refuse to "thoroughly" cook the meat. They call it a hockey puck and if the old guy's in a bad mood, he'll brandish his knife at you for ordering it.

They also supposedly invented the hamburger, or at least the American incarnation of it. Oh, and they don't carry ketchup.

    Of course that's were the hamburger was invented. That it may have been independently invented in dozens of other places is irrelevant 8-)


    Information about American English usage here and here.

    Any New York City or Connecticut area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.

    I try to keep my burger on the edge of the grill when I cook for my wife and two step-sons so I get medium rare, but that's not possible with the factory-made burgers -- they're not nearly as tasty, but they are way less work.

    My latest batch of hand-made burgers contained diced onion and garlic, along with oregano, paprika, chili powder, pepper and salt. They fell apart a little on the grill (perhaps an egg as binder next time) but tasted great.
