DIRECTIONS

  • Mash bread and milk in large bowl with fork until homogeneous (you should have about 1/2 cup). Stir in salt, pepper, garlic, and steak sauce.
  • Break up meat into small pieces over bread mixture. Using fork or hands, lightly mix together until mixture forms cohesive mass. Divide meat into 4 equal portions. Gently toss one portion of meat back and forth between hands to form loose ball. Gently flatten into 3/4" thick patty that measures about 4 1/2" in diameter. Press center of patty down with fingertips until it is about 1/2" thick, creating slight depression in each patty. Repeat with remaining portions of meat.
  • LIghtly dip wad of paper towels in vegetable oil; holding wad with toongs, wipe grill cooking grate. Grill burgers on hot side of grill, uncovered, until well seared on first side, 2-4 minutes. Using wide metal spatula, flip burgers and continue grilling, about 4 minutes. Add cheese about 2 minutes before reaching desired doneness, covering burgers with disposable aluminum foil to melt cheese.
  • While burgers grill, toast buns on cooler side of grill. Serve on buns with desired toppings.
