I am happy to announce that I am participating in the Joyofkosher.com Kosher Connection Link Up for Kosher food bloggers again (see below!). The theme for this month is grilled food. Perfect – right up my alley! I love almost anything grilled, from lettuce,to meat, to fish, to fruits and veggies. I had a hard time deciding what to post since you can make so many great recipes on the grill. I was having thoughts of grilled sandwiches, desserts, kabobs and all sorts of grilled concoctions. After many days of obsessing I could not decide what to post, but kept coming back to my favorite thing to make on the grill – a good old fashioned hamburger.
I love this recipe because it is quick, easy and delicious. It is kid and adult tested and always a winner! There are only a few ingredients, and these burgers are really flavorful. They can be made on an outdoor grill or year round on a grill pan. For many years I lived in an apartment and did not have an outdoor grill. These are still great made on the grill pan.
I love this burger on a bun topped with ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato pickles and a slice of onion – the classic. You can also get creative with what type of bun you use and top it with any of your favorite toppings. Some other toppers I love are sliced avocado, grilled onions and mushrooms, spicy mayonnaise or any pickled veggie. The possibilities are endless!
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 – 12 Minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1 ¼ pounds of lean ground beef
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly cracked pepper
Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill over medium-high heat.
Combine the salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder in a large bowl. Add the Worcestershire sauce and meat to the of the spices. Mix until just combined – do not over mix.
Create 4 burgers out of the mixture. Create a dimple in the middle of each burger to help cook evenly. Place the burgers on the grill.
Grill for 5 – 6 minutes on each side for medium burgers. A minute less for medium rare and a minute or two more for well done on each side.

I only use ground sirloin or black angus for the meat
keep up the good work
Certainly a different approach than my hamburger but I like it, and I’l be trying it!
Mazal Tov I love reading your recipes and follow some of them. Good work!
What a great looking hamburger! You’re reminding me that I haven’t had a really good one this summer.
and don’t forget the cheese!
Having burgers tonight! Your recipe is a plain, simple and delicious one. Perfect way to actually taste the meat, not all the other stuff.
