I got these from Ina Garten on FoodNetwork. They are so good cooked on the grill, but could also be broiled. BEWARE: these have plenty of fat--not for the faint of heart!LOL

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce (I use A1)
  • 6 extra-large egg yolks
  • 1 12 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 34 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 12 hamburger buns


  1. Mix meats, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper with fork (do not over-work).
  2. Form mixture into 12 balls.
  3. Put a thin slice of butter in the middle of each ball, then flatten into patties (make sure butter is completely surrounded by meat).
  4. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side until done.
  5. Remove to plate, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Yes, my husband says these hamburgers our wonderful! They were very easy to make and everyone enjoyed eating them--very juicy and flavorful. I think this will become my standard hamburger recipe. Thanks, CookinMamaof2!

Yum!! I put a spin on mine and cut the A1 with Sweet Baby Ray's, also wrapped the edges of each patty with a slice or two of bacon. The bacon doesn't need to be cooked before hand. Works great...just use toothpicks!!

Very good. I think it's a solid 4 1/2 stars, but there is no "half" option, so I gave it five. Next time I will leave out the A-1 sauce and just enjoy the flavor of the quality meat and butter! I halved this recipe and made 6 burgers. I cooked them in the frying pan and they were still delicious. The butter is a wonderful idea.
