Making hamburgers seems like such a simple meal, why even write a recipe for it? Well yes, hamburgers are simple, but the way that I make mine are just so dang good that I had to write it down! If you make this recipe, I guarantee that you will get compliments!
A good hamburger first of all starts with some high quality grass-fed beef. (Cows are meant to eat grass, not grain, by the way.) We get ours from a local farm for $5/lb, but you can also buy it here.
- 1 lb Ground Beef (Preferably grass-fed)
- 2 t. Real Salt (I buy my Real Salt in bulk here, you can buy a shaker here, or a refill pouch here.)
- 1 t. Pepper (Buy it here.)
- 1 t. Garlic Powder (I buy mine here or you can buy it here or here.)
- 1 t. Onion Powder (I buy mine here or you can buy it here.)
- 2 t. Bragg Liquid Aminos (Buy it here.)
- Start the grill and set it to medium/high.
- If the meat is frozen, fill up the sink (or a bowl) with warm water, and let soak for about 30-40 minutes.
- Divide the meat roughly into fourths, then eighths.
- Sprinkle generously with seasonings. (I don’t measure, just shake.)
- Mix the seasonings in with your hands as you form patties.
- After the grill has had a chance to heat up, scrape it off with a grill brush.
- Put the burgers on and turn the heat down to low/medium.
- Cook for 8 minutes. Flip and cook for 4 minutes. (After you flip is a great time to add cheese if you want it melted.)
- Serve and enjoy!
