Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

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


1.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, to taste. Form into patties--a 6 to 8-ounce patty for an average serving.


2.Using a black iron skillet or your best copper one or your pet aluminum frying pan, Teflon-coated or not (with a Teflon coating you won't need much fat, just a little bit for flavor), and cook the hamburgers in the butter and oil over fairly high heat, giving it 4 to 5 minutes a side, depending on how well done you like it. Salt this creamy, oniony, peppery hamburger before serving it on a buttered bun or English muffin, or as a main course with sliced tomatoes and onions or some home-fried potatoes.
