Geoffrey Zakarian's Town Burger

Serves 4 Servings


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoon prepackaged organic prime ground beef patties
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 4 tablespoon English muffins
  • 4 slice beefsteak tomato


Baking Directions:

Preheat a grill or cast-iron skillet, wiping down the grate or the skillet with olive oil before heating over medium-high flame.

  Season the hamburgers generously on both sides with the salt and pepper.

Char the burgers well on both sides: about 4 minutes per side on grill, 4 1/2 minutes per side in a skillet.

  Just before the burgers reach the desired temperature, remove them to a rack to rest.

  Divide the butter evenly on top of each burger and sprinkle with a little chopped parsley.

  While the burgers are resting, grill or toast each of the split English muffins.

  After 5 minutes, return the burgers to the grill or skillet to heat through before serving.


Serving Directions:

Place a burger on each of 4 English muffin halves, top with a tomato and the other half of the muffin, and serve.
