Real Hamburgers
  • Cooking Time: 6-10
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 10
  • 2 lbs. ground chuck
  • 3 Tbsp. steak sauce (A-1)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 4 Tbsp. cold unsalted butter
  • 12 hamburger buns
  1. Carefully mix the meat, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper with the tines of a fork, but do not mash it.
  2. Lightly form each hamburger and lightly press into a patty shape.
  3. Make an indentation and put a thin slice of butter inside each hamburger, making sure the butter is entirely encased in the meat.
  4. Heat grill, broiler, or sauté pan and cook the burgers for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until almost done.
  5. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes and serve immediately on buns.
I'm not sure, but I think this one comes from Ina Garten. In any event, they are delicious!
