Classic Beef Burger


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min


4 burgers


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1½ pound ground beef
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 sesame buns, split
  • 4 leaves Boston lettuce, washed
  • 4 tablespoons special sauce
  • 4 slices heriloom tomatoes


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté 10 to 12 minutes or until caramelized and translucent. Cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, combine onions with ground beef. Divide into 4 portions and form into ½-inch thick patties.Season both sides lightly with pepper.
  3. Cook burgers on a preheated grill for 8 minutes per side for medium rare or about 12 minutes per side for medium or longer depending on desired doneness.
  4. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Place each burger on a sesame bun with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 tablespoon Special Sauce, and a slice of tomato.

TIP: When making burgers, remove the ground meat from the fridge about 20 minutes before forming into patties. Resist the urge to over handle while trying to form perfect-looking burgers. Over handling will cause the meat to toughen.

  1. If I want to double the amount of burgers, should I double all the ingredients?
