These incredibly juicy burgers are topped with cheddar cheese.


  • 2 pounds ground chuck

  • 1 pound ground sirloin

  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce, such as Crosse & Blackwell

  • 6 large egg yolks

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 10 pats

  • 12 ounces white cheddar, thinly sliced


  1. Use a fork to combine the chuck, sirloin, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; do not mash mixture. Divide into 10 equal parts. Form patties. Make an indentation in each patty; place a piece of butter inside, and encase completely with meat.

  2. Heat a grill, grill pan, or broiler. Cook patties 5 minutes, flip, and top with cheese. Cook 3 to 5 minutes more, until almost cooked through. Transfer to a plate; cover with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
