If you think about it, burgers and meatloaf are a weird idea
"Can you mince that bit of beef up?"
"Sure. Why?"
"I'm going to stick it all back together again."

Yep. It's pretty much the same thing as grinding meat for sausage. Evenly distributes the yucky bits (and/or fillers) through the whole thing.

Burgers are like steak only better. I'm not sure what the "yucky" bits are, fat perhaps. Anyway the fat gets distributed around with the meat to make it cook better in a burger. With a steak you have meat and then fatty bit unless it is perfectly marbled. With a burger you can take a much less prized cut of meat and make it taste even better still.

Because you can't do a 60/40 steak (60% beef, 40% bacon)

Yes, to distribute the fat. Did research in the USDA where we studied body composition in growing steers. The ones we slaughtered early were a problem for the meat packer because they were too lean. They had to add fat and make hamburger with all the meat.

Have you never had a really good burger?

It should be obvious if you have. They're delicious.

A lot of beef is very tough, and dries out easily when cooking. A good burger doesn't, and isn't.
