Grilled Butter Burger
1 ½ lb. Fresh Lean Ground Beef
3 tbsp. Unsalted Butter, melted and slightly cooled
as needed Lawry's Seasoned Salt
as needed Onion Powder
as needed Garlic Powder
as needed Black Pepper
4-6 Hamburger Buns (your favorite)
4-6 slices Cheese (your favorite) (optional)
Place ground beef on a large mixing bowl. Pour the cooled melted butter over the ground beef and gently mix with a fork or by hand. Form into 4 – 6 oz. patties or 6 – 4 oz. patties and place on a sheet pan. Refrigerate for an hour or up to one day before grilling. Liberally season each side of the parties with the 4 seasonings listed in the ingredients. Have your grill ready on high-heat, oil grates and place patties on them. Grill on each side for 4 to 5 minutes depending on the degree of doneness you desire. Top with cheese slices (if using) and close lid to help cheese melt. This takes a minute or so depending on type of cheese. After cheese has melted, remove burgers to a serving tray and grill buns to desired brownness. Serve with your favorite condiments.
Note: If you want to get fancy with the ground beef, try grinding it yourself. Use a food processor for grinding. Cut selected steak meat into small cubes, put single layer on a sheet pan and place in freezer for about 30 minutes. In small batches, pulse about 30 to 40 times. Repeat as needed with the remaining batches. Check the meat for any large pieces or stringy gristle. Remove these and pulse this meat a few more times. Then just follow directions above.
