Description

We love a good hamburger. When we really want to go all out, we go for the bacon, cheddar, and, if feeling really indulgent, a fried egg! However, lately, we have really been trying to cut back on the rich foods and revamp our favorites into lighter favorites. The key is a slow, low heat cooking method and the addition of finely minced onions for moisture. This recipe is definitely a winner for a lower fat burger.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound 93% Lean Ground Beef
  • 4 Tablespoons Finely Minced Onion
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 4 whole Hamburger Buns
  • Optional Burger Toppings Of Choice

Preparation

1. Place all ingredients (everything except the oil, buns and toppings) in a large bowl. Using your hands, thoroughly combine without over working.
2. Press the burger mix flat and then use the side of your hand to evenly divide into quarters.
3. Pat each quarter of the meat mixture into a patty of desired thickness, using your thumbs to create a small well in the center. This will help them to cook more evenly.
4. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat it with the vegetable oil. Once the skillet is hot add the patties. Cook to desired doneness. Approximately 7 minutes per side gets ours to medium well.
5. Serve on a toasted bun with your choice of toppings.

Note: Since this is a lean cut of meat, you want to cook them slower in order to prevent them from being tough and dry. Your cooking time will vary depending on your grill and the thickness of the patty.
