Juicy And Flavorful Grilled Burgers

One of my favorite recipes to cook during the summer for parties and barbecues. My world famous burgers! Well in my world at least. This recipe is great because it doesn’t matter how well done they are cooked they are alway juicy and full of flavor so you really can’t mess these up!

Juicy And Flavorful Grilled Burgers

Prep

Don’t over mix

There is always the debate on mixing in ingredients or putting them on top. I’m partial to mixing in the ingredients. The only downside is that it can lead to mushy burgers if you over do it. When mixing the ingredients into the meat try not to over work the meat. I use a mixing spoon and basically fold the ingredients and pack it back together.

Don’t be afraid of fat

Another tip is your fat content. The less fat you use in your burger the more likely it is to dry up and fall apart. Anything in between 15-20% is good!I use 15% from over the counter, which is probably closer to 20% because they’re grinding it in house.

Another tip on this: watch what meat is on sale. If you’re getting your ground beef from over the counter you’re getting a good portion from the scraps from trimmings of the meat they’re pushing the most this week. I only know this because I used to work behind a meat counter.

Cooking

Set it and forget it

If you’re still new to grilling you may be one to flip your meat a lot. Sometimes you can get away with it, but with some meats that is going to lead to problems. Since this is ground up you’re going to run into problems with it falling apart by doing this.

Keep from flipping your burger. Let it grill for about 3 minutes on 1 side. Flip and let it cook for another 4-7 minutes. Thats it!

Need an idea for sides?

 

Enough Talk. More Rock.

Instructions
  1. Mince the shallot and garlic. Don't ask why I prepped 3 times the amount of shallots in this picture. I don't know myself!
  2. With the ground beef in a mixing bowl add the garlic, shallots, mustard, ketchup, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Mix the ingredients, but don't over mix. over mixing will just make mushy burgers.
  4. Take about a palm full in your hand. Pat it flat in your hand then use your free hand to form it into a round patty
  5. Let it rest while you get your grill pre heated.
  6. While the grill is preheating get your garnishes ready. Oh how i wish i remembered avocado and bacon from the grocery store...
  7. With the grill nice and hot put your patties over direct heat and cover the grill. Let them cook for 3 minutes.
  8. Flip the burgers and let cook for another 5(medium) 6(medium well) or 7 (well) minutes. in the last 2-3 minutes on the grill put cheese on top to let them cook. Keep the grill covered as much as possible.
  9. when the cheese is placed also add buns on the top rack face down if you want to toast them.
  10. Once the burgers are done to your wellness, let them rest for about 5 minutes.
  11. Get it on your bun, serve with your garnishes and enjoy!!

  • Oh good god yum. These look delicious and thanks for the tips. I may be (probably am) an over mixer but I HATE it when I hit an unincorporated pocket of seasoning. #burgerproblems
