Gourmet Beef Burgers

Prep 10 min | Cook 15 min | Ready in 25 min


For the beef patties:

1 1/2 pounds ground beef (80% lean, 20% fat)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and black pepper to taste
For the toppings and assembly:

4 burger buns (brioche, pretzel, or your favorite type)
4 slices of your preferred cheese (cheddar, Swiss, or gouda work well)
4 lettuce leaves
1 large tomato, sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
Pickles (optional)
Condiments of your choice (mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, etc.)


1. Prepare the beef patties:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper.
Gently mix the seasonings into the ground beef, being careful not to overwork the meat, as this can make the patties tough.
Divide the seasoned beef mixture into 4 equal portions and shape them into burger patties. Make them slightly larger than the size of the buns, as they will shrink slightly during cooking.

2. Cook the beef patties:

Preheat your grill, stovetop griddle, or frying pan over medium-high heat.
If using a grill, oil the grates lightly to prevent sticking.
Cook the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130-135°F (54-57°C), and for medium, aim for 140-145°F (60-63°C).

3. Toast the burger buns:

While the patties are cooking, lightly toast the burger buns on the grill, griddle, or in a toaster. This step adds a nice texture to the buns and prevents them from becoming soggy.

4. Add cheese and assemble the burgers:

In the last minute of cooking, add a slice of cheese to each patty, allowing it to melt slightly.
Assemble the burgers by placing a cooked patty with melted cheese on the bottom half of each bun.
Top the patty with lettuce, tomato slices, red onion, and pickles (if using).
Add your favorite condiments to the top half of the bun.

5. Serve and enjoy:

Place the top bun on each burger to complete the assembly.
