Ingredients

Directions

  • Divide sirloin into four equal portions, and form patties, each about 1 inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. Be careful not to overhandle the meat, which compresses and toughens it. Place a small amount of blue cheese in the center of each patty, if desired. Rub patties lightly with a very small amount of olive oil.

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until very hot. Place patties in skillet, and cook for 4 minutes. Turn, and season with salt and pepper. Top with cheese, if desired, cover, and cook 3 minutes more for medium-rare.

  • Meanwhile, slice open buns, and toast them; spread with butter, if desired. When burgers are done, serve on toasted buns with any combination of the following: onions, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and relish.

It was nice to see instructions on here for cooking hamburgers. They turned out really good on the cast iron skillet. You definitely don't need to add olive oil though. There's enough grease from the ground beef, and a seasoned cast iron skillet is a natural nonstick surface. The olive oil makes the burgers too greasy.
