It was easy to make, had a great flavor, and my kids even liked it. I suggest more sauce than recipe calls for, because you will want to have it to spoon over burgers when served.

I love hamburgers and I love this recipe! This is so easy and comes out very tasty. I wanted a tad more sauce so right at the end I added an oz of vodka mmmmm. Thanks for a really good recipe

This sauce is so yummy, and the aroma is wonderful. I cooked 3 rump steaks instead, and doubled the sauce mixture, using small, frequent amounts to fry the steak in (and to put on top of the steak as a quick marinade), then using the bit left over to spoon over the steak and fried rice I made. I also used soy margarine instead of butter, dijon mustard and 1 freshly squeezed orange, because I ran out of lemons.

Nummmmmy! Add Lipton Onion Soup mix to the hamburger (actually I used ground turkey, less fat) Make at least double the recipe for the sauce. I made triple and it was just enough for the two of us. Use Grey Poupon mustard. This is easy to make and well worth the effort.

While the meat came out VERY moist, I found that doubling the sauce still wasn't enough; perhaps garlic the next time, and a bit more Worchesteshire sauce to lemon.

Thanks to all who suggested doubling the sauce. We put a couple of tablespoons of minced onion in the meat mix, and cooked the patties in a pan sprayed with oil. Then we made a sauce using low fat cream instead of the butter. So tasty! I think the sauce would be great with steak or chicken or pork or......

I paid attention to all the comments about making more sauce. I fully understand why they were made!! I love lemon anything and I added a bit more lemon than called for and it was delicious. This is a recipe well worth doing again!!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I always need something new to make with hamburger meat. It was sooo easy to make and it tasted wonderful. And one of the bet parts was that I had all the ingredients. I served it with greenbeans and mashed potatoes.

GREAT recipe!!!! Absolutely, at least double the sauce...I actually tripled it, because I am a "sauce person." I also cut down a little on the mustard, and added about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. This is a fantastic, easy recipe to make, and quite easy to tailor the sauce to your own particular likes or dislikes. Would be really hard to mess up!
