Why an Undercooked Burger Is More Dangerous Than Undercooked Steak

Why an Undercooked Burger Is More Dangerous Than Undercooked Steak You should never, ever eat a rare burger—here's why.  

This steak seasoning is perfect for taking your simple grilled steak to the next level with flavors of garlic, onion, and herbs. The best way to season a steak depends a little bit on the type of steak you are grilling , as well as the level of seasoning you like on your meat.

Cooking steaks involve more than just taking the meat out of the fridge and slapping it on the grill . Kosher salt is the best kind of salt for seasoning a steak because its coarse crystals will really grab onto the meat. Season generously. When it comes to pepper, everyone's tastes are a little different.

Although hot dogs can be—and should be—enjoyed all year round, like burgers, they’re at their peak in the summer, being charred on grills across the country and getting slicked with ketchup and mustard at the ball game. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good ballpark dog. But while we were in the throes of grilling stories this summer, we decided to poke around and see what other (read: not easily found in most grocery stores) hot dogs the world had to offer. After all, high-low foods (such as caviar and potato chips) are a Food & Wine favorite, and we loved the idea of trying a higher-quality version of the cookout staple. So we called in some samples, ending up with hot dogs from four different brands: Pat LaFrieda, Snake River Farms, The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company, and KC (Kansas City) Cattle company. Needless to say, it was a pretty exciting day in the office.

Armed with a spread of toasted buns, yellow mustard, sliced pickles, and ketchup, we got to work, moving down the line to taste each chargrilled dog. We tried them “naked” and slathered in toppings—with each bite, we paid special attention to texture, taste, flavor notes, and how well the hot dog married with the toppings. In the end, we were pretty dehydrated from the salt overload, but it was well worth it to discover one of the most unique hot dogs we’ve ever tasted. Read on for our thoughts:

The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company Smoked & Uncured Classic Beef Hot Dogs

While the other hot dogs were shorter and thick, The Brooklyn Hot Dog company’s were long and skinny, stretching beyond the confines of your average bun. The casing was thicker and had a good snap, appearing slightly wrinkly when grilled—as for the flavor? It was smoky and salty, complemented by a chewy texture.

“Nice length and texture,” an editor wrote. “I think this one is actually the most ‘classic’ of the dogs.”

Snake River Farms American Wagyu Beef Gourmet Frankfurters

Snake River brought the smokiest hot dogs to the table—they were juicy and well-spiced, and one editor likened the tasting notes to kielbasa. The texture was smooth and uniform, with a snappy casing.

“More bite than Pat LaFrieda but still smooth and ‘hot-doggy,’” an editor noted. “Great meaty flavor, spices, and good snap from the casing.”

Kansas City Cattle Company Uncured Wagyu Beef Hot Dogs

This hot dog blew us away. The umami! The spice! The beefiness! It was basically like eating a steak in a bun, or an elevated “tube steak,” if you will. The flavor had real depth and smoky undertones, and the texture and color (darker, more brown than red) was different than most hot dogs—in a good way.

“So rich and flavorful. It’s well-spiced and the taste is almost similar to kofta,” an editor wrote. “Although it doesn’t strictly remind me of a hot dog in flavor, I’m 100 percent sold—it also stands up to toppings really well, and the flavor still comes through.”
