This is the BEST Hamburger Recipe for grilling up a juicy American classic. You'll have a perfect burger every time!
Servings: 4 hamburgers
- 1½ pounds ground beef 80% lean/20% fat; or ground chuck
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1½ teaspoons minced garlic
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1½ teaspoons seasoned salt
- 4 brioche buns toasted
- lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles, onions, bacon and avocado optional
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and pepper. Mix with your hands until just combined (do not overmix).
Divide mixture into fourths and shape into patties using your hands. The patties should be about ¾ inch thick. Use the back of a spoon to make an indent in the middle of each patty to keep it from puffing up too much in the middle while cooking. Sprinkle patties with seasoned salt.
Add burgers to the grill and cook for 3–3½ minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches about 140 degrees F, for a medium burger.
Place each burger on a toasted bun and top with your favorite toppings.
Doneness Guide: Measuring the internal temperature is the best way to gauge your burger’s doneness. Cook to:
o 120 degrees F for rare (red/raw in the center)
o 130 degrees F for medium-rare (pink and warm)
o 140 degrees F for medium (totally pink, starting to dry out)
o 150 degrees F for medium-well (grayish pink, significantly drier)
o 160 degrees F for well-done (completely gray, very little moisture)
To Pan Fry: A cast-iron skillet works best for pan-frying burgers. Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in the pan over high heat. When you put the burgers in, they should immediately sizzle. Cook until golden brown, 3–5 minutes on each side.
