  • Hey, brainiacs.

  • I'm Cristen Conger from Stuff Mom Never Told You here

  • to tell you about where the word "hamburger" came from.

  • Because guess what, y'all?

  • It don't got no ham in it.

  • Now the short answer is that hamburgers

  • came from Hamburg, Germany.

  • There was a little guy named Hans hanging out one day

  • and he had some meat in the fridge and some spices.

  • And he was super hungry, and so he

  • decided to put it all together and make

  • a hamburger, or a Hansburger, as he liked to call it.

  • Unfortunately, that is not actually

  • where hamburgers came from.

  • But I like to think of a man on a mountain eating a hamburger

  • way back in the day.

  • No, but there is something about Germans

  • and loving barbecue foods.

  • Because not only is Germany the home of hamburgers,

  • it is also the home of hot dogs.

  • Because hot dogs were invented in Frankfurt,

  • Germany, aka, frankfurters-- get it?

  • But instead of old Hans on the side of his mountain making

  • ye olde hamburger, it actually goes back to the Tartars,

  • a nomadic people who invaded Central Asia and Eastern Europe

  • in the Middle Ages.

  • And y'all, the Tartars were really intense about

  • their beef.

  • They ate it raw, hence the name "steak tartar."

  • And according to one account, they tenderized their beef

  • by putting it between the saddle and the horse as they rode.

  • This is stuff that's straight out of Game of Thrones.

  • George R. R. Martin, take note.

  • You should put that in your next book.

  • Now the Tartars then introduced the food to Germany.

  • And then the Germans took the beef,

  • spiced it up, and then fried or broiled it,

  • and thus we have the Hamburg steak.

  • Now when German immigrants then came over to the United States,

  • they brought their Hamburg steaks with them,

  • along with some clothes and pictures of loved ones.

  • Now it showed up on New York City restaurant menus

  • in the 1880s, and in no time at all,

  • hamburgers became a sensation as sandwiches at the 1904 World's

  • Fair in Saint Louis.

  • And now, for all of you people who get cravings for hamburgers

  • after you smoke something that is not legal-- in 1921,

  • White Castle was founded in Wichita, Kansas, which

  • is the oldest chain of hamburger restaurants.

  • Now, the hamburger's popularity exploded in the United States

  • after World War II when burgers became the main menu

  • item at drive-in restaurants, spawned by a growing

  • number of cars in the United States.

  • Because what's better than a drive-in date

  • than the smell of greasy meat in a car

  • mixing with pheromones and blooming passions?

  • Now, speaking of fast food chains,

  • McDonald's started also as a hamburger stand

  • in San Bernardino, California, and spread the hamburger

  • around the world, for better or worse for our bodies.

  • The world's largest restaurant chain,

  • McDonald's, has more than 26,000 restaurants in 119 countries,

  • and has served billions and billions of hamburgers.

  • But what I would like to see is the return

  • of the Tartar method of beef tenderizing by putting it

  • between a saddle and a horse.

  • Because while I would not want to eat that,

  • it sounds pretty cool.
