Ingredients

  • 11 ounces chuck steak, trimmed of any large pieces of fat
  • 11 ounces sirloin steak, trimmed of any large pieces of fat
  • Coarse salt
  • 3 ounces sharp cheddar, thinly sliced
  • 4 potato rolls (such as Martin's)
  • Thinly sliced pickles, for serving
  • Equal parts ketchup and mayonnaise, mixed together, for serving

Directions

  1. Cut both steaks into small pieces. Grind through the large holes of a meat grinder. Combine in a bowl, then grind together through small holes of grinder. Divide into 4 equal parts (each about 5 1/2 ounces). Form into patties, each about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Season both sides of burgers with salt. Grill 2 1/2 minutes a side for medium-rare, placing cheese on burgers in last minute. Transfer to a plate. Grill rolls until toasted, 30 seconds. Sandwich burgers on rolls with pickles and ketchup-mayonnaise.
