  • 1 ½ pounds 80% lean, 20% fat ground beef or ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons seasoning salt
  • 4 Brioche buns (the shiny kind) toasted


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat or 375° F.
  • Add the beef, Worchestershire sauce, minced garlic and pepper into a large bowl. Mix with your hands until just combined.
  • Divide this 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 poofing up too much in the middle while cooking. Sprinkle patties with seasoning salt.
  • Add burgers to the grill and cook for 3-3 ½ minutes per side for a medium burger. Internal temperature should be about 140°F.
  • Placed on a toasted Brioche bun and top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions.

Here's a rough temperature guide:

  • 120°F (49°C) for rare (red/raw in the center)
  • 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare (pink and warm)
  • 140°F (60°C) for medium (totally pink, starting to dry out)
  • 150°F (66°C) for medium-well (grayish-pink, significantly drier)
  • 160°F (71°C) and above for well-done (completely gray, very little moisture)
