Simple Burgers at their best!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1133.98 g 80% ground beef, the best grade and freshest you can get at least choice
  • salt and pepper


  1. From the package VERY gently form into 8 burgers. Do not over press, squeeze or mix the meat in anyway. Save that for meatloaf.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill over high heat covered, I use charcoal,for 4 to 6 min per side depending on your preference, flipping at the halfway point. Add cheese at the flip if you wish. Serve on toasted buns with ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc. I like mine plain.

This was TERRIBLE!!! No taste other than salt and pepper. Maybe if I used ground oxtails and Velveeta Cheese they would have had more flavor.
