Everyday Grilled Beef Burger PRINT
This is a great recipe to have on hand when you get a craving for a good ole fashioned“grilled beef burger”.
|1||pound ground chuck or beef with 20% fat content|
|3||teaspoons Worcestershire sauce|
|2||teaspoons soy sauce|
|1||small shallot, minced|
|2||cloves garlic, finely minced|
|1||teaspoon black pepper|
Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon or spatula. The less you touch the meat with your hands the better, as the heat from your hands will begin to break down the fats. The fats make your burger juicy and flavorful.
Form burgers into 4 patties about 1”inch thick, using your hands as little as possible. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Preheat your grill, make sure it is really hot. Put the burgers onto the hot grill and let them sizzle for 2–4 minutes (depending on how hot your grill is) until there are evident grill marks, then flip. Repeat the process. Use a meat thermometer to test the doneness of the meat. Simple poke it into the thickest part of the burger to read the temperature. If, I am using freshly ground beef (ground that day) I tend to lean towards 145. If the beef was pre-ground a couple days before, I tend to lean towards 155–160. Remember the meat will continue to cook for about 5 minutes after you remove it from the grill.
