  • About This Recipe

    “Simple and delicious.”


  • 2lbsground chuck( don’t settle for anything less)
  • 1lb lean ground lamb (or more chuck) or 1lbground pork( or more chuck)
  • 1teaspoondried parsley
  • 2tablespoonsonion powder
  • 2tablespoonsgarlic powder
  • 1/4 cupolive oil( give or take)
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • Directions

  • Mix meats, parsley and powders in a large bowl.
  • Divide mixture into 8 equal portions (6 oz ea).
  • Gently form into the desired sized disk, generally about 4″ diameter, 3/4″ thick seems to work pretty good.
  • Don’t overwork the meat, it takes the tenderness out of it.
  • At this point you can place the burgers, wrapped in plastic, in the fridge for a day or so without any change of flavor.
  • Could be frozen as well.
  • Press your thumb in the center of each burger to form a depression about 1/2 the thickness of the burger.
  • This prevents the football burger problem that everyone squeezes the burger for.
  • Right before cooking brush a bit of olive oil on the burgers and season with garlic salt and pepper.
  • Cook on a VERY hot grill, about 4 minutes.
  • Extinguish flare-ups as required.
  • Turn once and cook for an additional 4 minutes for a hot pink center (3 minutes for rare, 5 minutes for well done) Add cheese (if desired) for the last 60 seconds or so.
  • The key here is to form a crust that will seal in the juices and yield a juicy, flavorful burger.
  • Can also be done in a hot cast iron skillet on the stove.

  • “I cut the recipe back to 1- 6 oz burger. Fried it along with some mushrooms -It was crispy on the outside and Oh so juicy inside. I mixed half ground lamb & half beef – Interesting combination but I think that I would keep it straight beef next time or straight lamb .The thumb print impression is a good idea. With ground beef I like the burger to be well done so gave it a full 5 minutes each side. Served on a Portuguese bun with Oven fries seasoned with Mediterranian/Garlic Salad dressing seasoning Good BurgerThanks Steve for a neat flavor comb0”
