So hang tight and come with us as we discuss the history of the hamburger, in celebration of Burger Month!
History of Hamburger Month
So there’s a strange fact about the most popular ‘cut’ of meat out there today. It started out as garbage meat, waste that was produced in the process of cutting more desirable steak cuts. It was produced from the unwanted meats, the left-over slices from shaping up meat, and the general muscle tissue that was left over after getting “the good stuff”.
It can now be found in thousands of different locations with variations that range from the amazing to the simply bizarre. They’ve even started providing burgers in various other meats, from turkey and chicken to buffalo and emu! Burger Month celebrates this humble meat, that became a worldwide favorite!
