The Juiciest, Most Flavorful Burgers Ever

Do you want thick, juicy, flavorful burgers that stay in one piece on a bun?  Look no further.

When my friend first suggested this recipe, I laughed him out of the kitchen.

“That’s meat loaf!” I teased.

Well, it basically is meat loaf, but it totally works.  Follow these steps for tasty, juicy, crowd- pleasing burgers.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Lawry’s seasoning salt
  • 1 egg
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Minced onion or shallot (optional)
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning (optional)

STEP 1:

Put your pound of ground beef in a bowl in one piece.  Shake Lawry’s on it until the entire surface has a thin dusting of salt.  Give the meat about 5 shakes of Worcestershire sauce.  Crack and egg on the meat. OPTIONAL:  Add 1 tablespoon of minced onion or shallot/ Montreal Steak Seasoning.

STEP 2:

Mix egg, Worcestershire, salt and meat with your hands.  The mixture should be slimy but not liquid.  Remember, do not consume raw or uncooked meat or egg products.

STEP 3:

Add panko breadcrumbs until you achieve desired dryness.  Start by adding 1/4 cup, then mixing.  Your burger meat should have the consistency of oatmeal cookie batter.

STEP 4:

Shape into burgers at least 1 inch thick.

STEP 4:

Grill on any grill or frying pan over medium heat.  Grilling preferences vary; I usually go with 4 minutes per side.

Enjoy with your favorite burger fixins’.  I like this burger on sourdough bread with avocado, tomato and romaine.
