- (2 pounds) Premium Ground Beef
- (one small) onion
- (1 tsp) salt
- (1/2 teaspoon) black pepper
- (1 - 2 Tablespoons to coat the pan) Avocado Oil
Using your hands, gently mix onion, beef, 1¼ tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper in a medium bowl. Gently shape into four 1½”-thick patties (loosely formed patties will be more succulent).
Heat avocado oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Season patties with salt and pepper, place in skillet, and immediately reduce heat to medium.
Cook 5-6 minutes per side
Serve on your favorite buns with your preferred toppings!
SOME OF MY FAVORITE BURGER TOPPINGS:
Looking for an alternative to the classic lettuce, tomato, and onoin? Try some of these combos!
Messy Beard BBQ Sauce by Fire and Smoke (it's got stout beer, coffee, and molasses!) Either replace the ketchup with Messy Beard (or your favorite BBQ sauce) or baste your cooked burger with the sauce and toss on the grill for a minute on each side
Smoked Gouda and avocado slices with cilantro and a spritz of lime juice
Sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese
Olive Tapenade with fresh heirloom tomatoes and pepper jack cheese
Carmelized Onion (like you need anything else?)
Teriyaki sauce and Pineapple slices
Patties can be formed several hours or a day ahead. Cover and refrigerate
