These burgers are a real hit with my family and friends. The original recipe came from msn lifestyles section and after some tweaking, I believe I have perfected the grilled burger! Try it and let me know, I have never had a bad comment from anyone, even my picky children. Thanks and ENJOY! P.S. I just tried a little substitution last week..instead of the hot souce, try Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce.....Excellent option! Great flavor and heat.
- Ready In:
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons onions
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon steak sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cooking oil
- 2 -3 dashes bottled hot pepper sauce
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices American cheese
- 4 lettuce leaves
- 4 slices tomatoes
- 4 slices sweet onions
- 4 slices pickles
- In a food processor, combine garlic or onion, catsup, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, cooking oil, and hot pepper sauce. Pulse until a semi smooth paste forms.
- In a medium mixing bowl combine ground beef, salt, and pepper, and paste from previous ingredients, mix well. Shape meat mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
- I like to let them sit in the fridge for an hour or so, while my charcoal grill heats to let the flavors meld through out the burgers.
- To Cook by Direct Grill Method: In a covered grill arrange preheated coals evenly. Test for medium heat above the rack. Place meat on the grill rack over coals. Cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted in side of burger registers 160°F, turning once halfway through grilling time.
- To serve, split and toast the buns on the grill. Serve patties in buns with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickle, if desired. I like a little Thousand Island dressing too! Makes 4 servings.
- This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate you crowd.
