I made these yummy homemade hamburger buns and the next day, I topped them with these even yummier burgers.
Everyone likes their burger a certain way. I prefer mine with mustard on the bottom bun and ketchup on the top bun next to the tomato. The lettuce goes under the meat patty because if it's next to the tomato it slides around and that drives me nuts. It must also have melted stringy cheese (Sharp Cheddar or Muenster) on it. I like my pickles crisp, so they stay off to the side. I absolutely not, under no circumstances put mayo or miracle whip on my hamburgers. Eww! I don't like the warm mayo taste with the ground beef- gag me. (Donna, do you like to be gagged?)
My husband loves miracle whip and mayo so he slathers it on both sides of the bun (Donna, hush!) and fills it with a patty covered in American cheese, tomato, lettuce and pickles. Sometimes he'll even add a dollop of ketchup. However you like to assemble your burgers, be sure to start out with fresh ingredients and the final product will always be good.Steakhouse Burgers
- 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef (We use 90/10)
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 tsp. Steak Seasoning
- 2 Tbsp. Butter
- Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Bacon, Cheese, Mayo, Mustard, Ketchup, Pickles etc.
In a medium bowl, mix together ground beef, Worcestershire sauce and steak seasoning by hand. Mix until just combined but don't overwork the meat or it'll be tough. Form into 3- third (1/3) pound patties.
Place butter in pan and heat over medium-medium high heat til butter is melted. Place patties in pan, but don't overcrowd them or they won't get brown and crusty. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes per side for a medium doneness. 5-6 minutes on each side for well done burgers. Dress your burger to your liking.
NOTE: Because I use lean ground beef, I don't over cook them because they'll dry out. If you like your burgers a little more done or cooked all the way through, use a ground beef with a higher percentage of fat. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
How do you like your burgers?
