For the Burger Patties:
- 1 lb ground beef (preferably 80% lean, 20% fat)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 4 hamburger buns, split
- 4 slices of cheddar or your preferred cheese
- Lettuce leaves
- Tomato slices
- Red onion rings
- Ketchup, mustard, and/or mayonnaise
- Optional toppings: bacon, avocado, jalapeños
- Preheat your grill or stovetop pan over medium-high heat. If using a grill, lightly oil the grate.
- Patty Formation:
- In a mixing bowl, gently combine the ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Avoid over-mixing, as this can make the burgers tough.
- Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions and form each into a patty, about 1/2-inch thick. Make a small indentation in the center of each patty using your thumb (this helps prevent the patty from puffing up in the center as it cooks).
- Cooking the Patties:
- Place the patties on the preheated grill or pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on one side until nicely seared.
- Flip the patties and cook for another 2-3 minutes. If you’re adding cheese, place a slice on each patty about 1 minute before they’re ready to come off the grill.
- Cook to your preferred doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of about 130°F to 135°F.
- Toast the hamburger buns on the grill or pan for about 1 minute until lightly golden.
- On the bottom half of each bun, spread your choice of ketchup, mustard, and/or mayonnaise.
- Add lettuce, tomato slices, and onion rings.
- Place the burger patty (with cheese if used) on top.
- Add any additional toppings of your choice.
- Cap off with the top half of the bun.
- Serve and Enjoy:
- Serve your Ultimate Juicy Burger Delight with a side of fries, coleslaw, or a refreshing salad. Dive in while it’s hot and savor the juiciness!
Tip: Adjust the seasoning based on your preference, and feel free to get creative with toppings for an even more delightful burger experience!
