Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch, mustard, and broth together; set aside.
  2. Form the ground beef into 6 patties, each 1 inch thick; set aside.
  3. Put the peppercorns on a shallow plate and crush with the back of a spoon; mix in the soy sauce and 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  4. Press both sides of each burger into the peppercorn mixture, so the burgers are evenly studded and you have used up all the peppercorns.
  5. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over high heat; sear 3 of the burgers on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  6. Remove from the pan and set aside; repeat with the remaining 3 burgers.
  7. Decrease heat to medium; add in shallots and parsley; stir to combine.
  8. Add the cornstarch mixture, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and port; cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  9. Carefully pour half the sauce into a second skillet; place 3 burgers in each skillet, decrease heat to med-low and cook, bathing the burgers in the simmering sauce by turning them over, for 3-5 minutes.
  10. Serve on toasted brioche buns; top burgers off with some of the pan sauce and a pinch of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley.
