  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sliced cheddar cheese, for serving (optional)
  • 4 brioche burger buns, split
  • Sliced tomatoes, for serving (optional)
  • Red Onion Jam, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, mix together sirloin and chuck. Gently form into 4 equal patties. Season patties with salt and pepper.

  2. Preheat a grill pan or large skillet over medium-high heat. Oil a grill pan or skillet. Heat for 1 minute; add patties. Cook, turning once, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Cook 1 or 2 minutes longer per side for a more well-done burger. Top burgers with cheese if desired, and cook until melted.

  3. Place each burger on a bun, and serve with tomatoes and red onion jam, if desired.
