Why I Love This Recipe

The most iconic west coast burger coming right to your kitchen

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon butter
1 large onion , finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
2 soft hamburger buns
Freshly ground black pepper
8 dill pickles chips
2 quarter-inch-thick slices ripe tomato
2 leaves fresh iceberg lettuce , white core section removed, torn to bun-sized pieces
1/4 cup yellow mustard
2 slices deli-cut American Cheese


Form meat into 4 patties, thin and slightly larger than the size of your bun

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to skillet.

Reduce heat to medium low, and cook, tossing and stirring occasionally until onions are well browned, about 15 mins. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Once onions begin to sizzle heavily and appear dry, add 1 tablespoon water to skillet and stir

Continue cooking until water evaporates and onions start sizzling again

Repeat process, adding 1 tablespoon of water with each iteration until onions are meltingly soft and dark brown, about 3 times total

Transfer to a small bowl and set aside while leaving any residual butter in the pan

To make the burger and animal fry topping: Add mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, sugar, and vinegar to a small bowl and stir to combine

Place closed buns in preheated oven for 2 minutes until slightly darker and just the slightest bit crispy

using the butter left behind by the onions, press the buns into the pan and toast for a few seconds until crispy. If there is no butter left in the pan, add a 1/2 a tablespoon or so to the pan

Season the patties with salt and pepper. Preheat pan on high and add the patties to the pan.

Cook without moving until well browned and crusty on first side, about 2 1/2 minutes

While they are cooking, spread about a tablespoon of mustard to the raw side. Flip and cook the mustard side as well, another minute

Add the sauce to each half of the bun. From the bottom up: add four pickles, then one slice of tomato and lettuce. Top the first meat patty with a slice of cheese and put some caramelized onions on top of each patty. Stack two patties together and add on top of the lettuce. Top with top bun.
