Two pounds lean ground sirloin or ground round preferably organic grass fed

One medium white or yellow onion minced

Three cloves garlic minced

Juice of one small lemon

1/4 cup melted butter or canola oil

1/4 cup steak sauce or 3 T Worcestershire sauce

Two egg yolks beaten

Two teaspoons Kosher salt

One teaspoon ground black pepper

Two teaspoons sweet paprika

One teaspooon ground cardamom (optional)

1/4 cup minced parsley (optional)

Garnish Suggestions

Slice Onion Rings, Sliced Tomatoes, Romaine Lettuce Leaves, Mayonaise, Dijon Mustard, Yellow Mustard, Ketchup, Sweet Pickle Relish, Dill or Bread and Butter Pickles, Hot Pickled Peppers, Barbecue Sauce, Steak Sauce, or Hot Sauce.


1) In a non reactive bowl place your minced ground meat. Season with the dried spices. Next mix in the butter or oil, beaten egg yolks, onion, garlic and parsley. Also add the steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce.

2) Form into balls with clean wet hands that can flatten out into half inch thick patties about three inches wide. Make a small dent in the center of each burger and don't flatten them out completely.

3) Cook on the first side at medium heat outdoors on a grill for six minutes roughly. Midway through flatten the patties out a bit. Next flip the burgers and cook for another three minutes. Make sure that you keep the cover on so that they can steam a bit. Don't forget to melt your favorite cheese on top if desired such as: American, Swiss, Feta, or Blue. Use your imagination!

4) If desired butter or oil and grill your hamburger buns to go with. Serve with your garnishes family style, with some baked potatoes, grilled vegetables or corn, and a green salad or vegetable slaw!

Indoor Method

1) Butter some large frying pans, or a skillet. Heat until hot and then add the butter. Reduce to low and cook the burgers three to four minutes a side. The internal temperature should read 160 degrees F at least.

2) On a sheet pan butter your hamburger buns and place under the broiler at a high temperature for just one minute or so until desired crispiness.

Garnish and enjoy!
