Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat a grill pan or grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Drizzle the bread with olive oil; grill bread until toasted (1-2 minutes on each side); rub the garlic all over the bread.
  3. Add the tuna to the container of a food processor; pulse until tuna is ground.
  4. Transfer tuna to a bowl; add in the rosemary, steak seasoning, orange zest, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and a liberal drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil; mix to combine.
  5. Brush the onion slices with olive oil and grill them 3-4 minutes on each side or until tender.
  6. While the onions are cooking, get the burgers ready to go on the grill by forming 4 large patties.
  7. Grill the patties with the lid down for 2 minutes on each side for rare and up to 5 minutes on each side for well-done.
  8. A minute before taking the burgers off the grill, top with an onion slice and two slices of cheese.
  9. Place the grilled bread on a platter; top with the orange slices, radicchio, and burgers.
  10. Season with salt and pepper; enjoy.
