Lobster Club Burgers

Anne Rosenzweig, acclaimed chef and owner of the Lobster Club in New York City, uses a mixture of freshly ground chuck and shoulder beef to create each of her exceptional eight-ounce burgers.

  • Yield: Makes 4

  • 1 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 pounds freshly ground beef, combination chuck and shoulder
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for grill
  • 4 semolina rolls, split
  • Baby lettuce, for garnish
  • Sliced plum tomatoes, for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, make compound herb butter by combining softened butter, thyme, sage, parsley, chives, and rosemary (this can also be done in a food processor). Turn out onto parchment or plastic wrap, and roll into a log, 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Chill until firm, or freeze for up to 1 month.

  2. Heat grill or grill pan.

  3. Form four 8-ounce, 1-inch-thick burgers. Cut four 1/8-inch-thick slices of compound butter from the log. Make an indentation in the center of each burger, and place half of a compound-butter slice inside. Reshape meat to cover butter, making sure it is not visible from either side; season both sides with salt and pepper.

  4. Oil grill with a small amount of vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

  5. Grill burgers for 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium doneness. Remove from grill, and place each burger on a roll. Serve garnished with lettuce and tomato.
