fantastic .40,glad the burgers got the thumbs up!good 'innit?!! can't take any credit for the idea tho' mate.i guess they have been doing it that way in the balkans since baking soda has been around & it was bolas & madge who told me about it.all i did was use it & post it in the receepee!
interestingly madge,who is croatian,uses fizzy mineral water rather than baking soda.i asked her if it makes the mix too wet & she said no,the meat absorbs the liquid while it is in the fridge after mixing....might try that way next eh?
works it's magic in meatloaf too!
