A small, unappetizing-looking piece that, instead, is super juicy and precious. It comes from the diaphragm of the animal and is very competitive.

Precisely because it is sensitive and it smells, It is the product that Karlos Arguiñano uses to prepare his hamburgers at home. but the cook mix the minced meat with an ingredient you might not have thought of: cooked rice! The reason is that the rice makes the burger even juicier.

Also, while preparing the meat mixture, Karlos Arguiñano ate some baked potatoes which was a surprise. And we also tell you how they are made.
