READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 4 burgers




  • In a large bowl, combine the ground sirloin, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder until evenly combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts and then shape each into thin patties. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Heat an indoor grill pan or outdoor grill over high heat. Once hot, place the frozen meat patties on the grill. Press down with a spatula and cook for about 4 minutes on the first side. Flip over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the second side. Turn off the grill and place a slice of cheese on top of each patty.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and relish. Set aside.
  • Toast the buns and spread each half with mayo.
  • To assemble the burgers, place a few pickle slices on each bottom half of the buns. Top layer lettuce, tomatoes, onions and a burger patty. Spread some of the ketchup mixture on the top bun and place on top. Serve immediately.
