To make this irresistible homemade beef burger, you will need the following ingredients:
– 1 pound of ground beef (preferably 80/20 lean to fat ratio)
– 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
– 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon of onion powder
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt
– 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
– 4 burger buns
– Lettuce leaves
– Sliced tomatoes
– Sliced onions
– Cheese slices (optional)
– For the secret sauce:
– 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
– 1 tablespoon of ketchup
– 1 tablespoon of sweet pickle relish
– 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
– 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
– 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
– A pinch of salt
Feel free to experiment with these ingredients and adjust the flavors according to your preferences. You can also add other toppings like bacon, pickles, or avocado to make your burger even more unique and delightful.
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
2. Divide the beef mixture into 4 equal portions and shape them into patties. Make sure to create an indentation in the center of each patty to prevent it from puffing up during cooking.
3. Preheat your grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Place the patties on the grill or skillet and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium doneness. Adjust the cooking time according to your desired level of doneness.
4. While the patties are cooking, prepare the secret sauce. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, ketchup, sweet pickle relish, Dijon mustard, paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth and creamy.
5. Once the patties are cooked to perfection, remove them from the heat and let them rest for a couple of minutes.
6. Toast the burger buns on the grill or skillet for a few seconds until lightly browned.
7. Assemble your homemade beef burger by spreading the secret sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Place a lettuce leaf, a tomato slice, and a couple of onion slices on top of the sauce.
8. Put the cooked beef patty on top of the veggies. If desired, add a slice of cheese on the patty.
9. Finally, cover your burger with the top half of the bun. You can secure it with a toothpick if needed.
10. Serve your mouthwatering homemade beef burger immediately, and prepare for a burst of flavors with every bite.
