How about some juicy homemade beef burgers, grilled to perfection?? Yummy!! I've tried quite a few recipes using different seasonings for the beef patties and the end result was average. So, the best burger as suggested by many experts, is to do away with all the seasonings. Stick to just plain and simple, salt and pepper! Well, I totally agree with that. Get some good quality meat and you'll definitely be happy with the end result.... Beefy, tasty burgers!
Recipe adapted from Whole Foods Market
1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground round
Salt and pepper to taste
4 whole grain hamburger buns
Extra virgin olive oil
4 leaves romaine or green leaf lettuce
1 large tomato, sliced
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
Prepare the grill. Divide and gently shape the meat into 4 patties. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill meat to desired doneness; about 4 to 6 minutes per side over a medium hot fire. Be careful not to overcook, which will dry out the meat. If you're a cheeseburger fan, add the cheese as soon as you flip to the second side. Meanwhile, brush buns with olive oil and grill just until lightly toasted. Dress burgers with lettuce, tomatoes and onions and serve.
