This is based off of an Ina Garten recipe, changed slightly due to personal preference. This is a moist and flavorful burger that my whole family loves. If you're tired of the same ol' same ol' burger, give this a try! You can either use an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan. Can easily be doubled, etc..

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground chuck
  • 12 lb ground sirloin
  • 1 12 tablespoons steak sauce (Crosse & Blackwell recommended)

  • 14-12 teaspoon ground black pepper (suit to your taste)
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 4 thin slices

  1. In a large bowl, mix the meats, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper. Don't overmix.
  2. Lightly form 4 hamburger patties and press lightly into shape.
  3. Press a thin slice of butter into the top of each hamburger, making sure the meat completely encases the butter.
  4. Heat your grill and cook the hamburgers for approximately 4 minutes on one side, turn , and cook for approximately 3 minutes on the other side for medium rare.
  5. *Adjust cooking times to suit.
  6. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, grill the buns, cut side down, for 1 minute, until toasted.

Given all the lean and extra lean meat available it is hard to get a juicy burger. This recipe did the trick perfectly!!! I'll be making them this way frequently. Thanks! Lesley (aka K9 Owned)
