Fattier (versus leaner) cuts of meat and poultry make the juiciest burgers. To maximize flavor, season the outside of burgers in addition to the meat mixture.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, place beef, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mix very gently with a fork to combine, being careful not to overwork meat (which would make burgers dense).

  • Gently form meat into 4 equal-size patties, 4 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. With thumb, make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation in the center of each patty (this helps keep burgers flat during grilling).

  • Moisten a folded paper towel with oil; grasp with tongs and rub over grates. Season burgers with salt and pepper. Grill 4 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare, placing cheese on second side for last 3 to 4 minutes of cooking.

  • Serve on English muffins (toasted on grill, if you like), with desired toppings.

I usually make these with ground turkey instead if beef - works great.

I think salt and pepper is a no-brainer. You use as much, or as little as you like. No? I just happen to be having a BBQ today and am going to do this with HALF of the burgers, just in case people don't love it. I am sure I will, but, just like my salsa, I make a mild version --just in case. Anyway, salt and pepper should not need to be listed as ingredients, really, unless baking. It's subject to the tastes of the cooks/guests, right?

sorry you are correct, the listing was in the directions, not in the ingredients, strange way to do it.

These were good but a little heavy on the salt. 1/2 tsp in the meat would be enough.
