Ingredients

  • 1⅓ pounds 85% lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free steak seasoning
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 4 slices cheese of your choice
  • Sliced tomatoes, lettuce and pickles
  • Chef notes

    This burger delivers all the flavor with no filler. Ditch the breads crumbs and just use really well seasoned beef seared to perfection. It's beyond good! 

    Technique tip: Make the patties a little thinner and wider than usual because they will shrink as they cook.

    Swap option: Use ground turkey to make these a little lighter or omit the bun for a keto diet-friendly version.

    Preparation

    1.

    In a bowl, mix together the beef, grated onion, garlic, seasoning, salt and Worcestershire. Then form the meat into 4 thin, wide patties. Set them aside.

    2.

    Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Place the burgers in the skillet and sear for about 3 minutes then flip. Wait a couple minutes,  then add your cheese and finish cooking until the cheese is fully melted.

    3.

    Mix together the mayo and mustard for a delicious multi-use spread, toast the buns (if you'd like) and assemble the burger with your favorite toppings.
