Ingredients

2 pounds chopped beef chuck or round
1 onion
1 tablespoon heavy cream
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Unsalted butter
Vegetable oil, as needed
Kosher salt, to taste


Spread the meat out on a board and grate 2 to 3 tablespoons of onion into it use a fairly fine grater so you get just the juice and very finely grated raw onion. Now mix in about a tablespoon of heavy cream and some freshly ground black pepper. Form into patties--a 6 to 8-ounce patty for an average serving.
