It’s not easy to achieve the perfect medium rare, tender and juicy burger.

From smashing it too thin, to over mixing the meat to adding a bit of gooey cheese, Insider’s Lisa Paradise made 16 different hamburgers to see how every single alteration, substitution and mistake affects your perfect patty.

Watch the video above to find out exactly what to do (and what not to do) when you’re cooking up the perfect burger.

Tips for cooking the perfect burger:

  1. Make sure the patty is 80% lean, 20% fat ground beef
  2. Season generously with salt and pepper before placing into HOT skillet
  3. A cast iron pan is better than other pans – the patties shrink less
  4. Don’t touch it until it’s time to flip it
