  • 2 pounds 80/20 ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 6 thin slices of cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns



Step 1

Warm your grill to high heat, about 450 degrees F.

While the grill is warming, prepare the burgers. Gently pat the ground beef into a log roughly 2 feet long on a clean baking sheet. Use your thumb to make a deep trough in the center. Sprinkle the onions evenly down the trough. Whisk together the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and garlic powder, and sprinkle this over the onions. Finish with a few grinds of fresh black pepper over everything.

Pinch ground beef closed around the onions. Divide the meat into 8 portions using a chef knife, a bench scraper, or your fingers. Use your hands to gently flatten each portion into a burger patty about 1-inch thick. Try not to compact or overwork the meat. Let the burgers rest at room temperature until the grill is warm, 20 minutes.

Grill the burgers for 2 minutes on each side, then move them to a lower-heat area of the grill. Cook another 2-3 minutes for medium-rare burgers, 3-4 minutes for medium, or 5-6 minutes for well-done burgers. In the last minute of cooking, lay a slice of cheese on top of each burger and arrange buns over high heat to toast.
