Somewhere along the line I missed the lesson on how to make hamburgers. I must have been absent that day. So, until very recently I bought ready-made patties, seasoned them with seasoned salt and threw them on the grill. They always turned out okay, but were never anything special.
My future sister-in-law’s mom, Vicki, recently shared a recipe for making phenomenal burgers! I called them “Grown-Up” Burgers because I feel so much more grown up when I make these burgers compared to my previous, one-ingredient recipe. I know you will love these — Enjoy!
- 3 pounds grass fed beef
- Worcestershire sauce
- 3 egg yolks
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- cold butter
- fresh chopped rosemary
- crusty sourdough rolls or sliced boule
- Carefully mix the meat, Worcestershire sauce, egg yolks, salt, and pepper with the tines of a fork, but do not mash it. Lightly form each hamburger and lightly press into a patty shape. Make an indentation and put a thin slice of butter and fresh rosemary inside each hamburger, making sure the butter and rosemary is entirely encased in the meat.
- Heat a grill, broiler, or sauté pan and cook the hamburgers for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until almost done. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes and serve.
*This recipe is also great with ground turkey. Use sage to compliment turkey instead of rosemary.
