Grilled All American Burger Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 6)
Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 2 lbs 85% lean ground beef chuck


  • 1/4 cup cold water


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste (or ketchup)


  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 12 slices American cheddar cheese (optional)


  • 6 burger buns, split and toasted


  • Grilling Instructions

    1. Preheat the grill as follows:

    Gas:
    Direct heat, medium-high
    (425 - 450 degrees F)

    Charcoal:
    Direct heat, light ash, grate should be on lowest setting

    Wood:
    Direct heat, light ash, 3 - 4 inches deep, grate should be 2 inches above the fire

    2. Meanwhile in a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except the cheese and buns. Don't overmix. With a light touch, form into 6 patties no more than 1 inch thick.

    3. Lightly cut criss-cross marks into one side of your hamburger pizza patties. Refrigerate them until the grill is ready.

    4. Clean and lightly oil grill grate. Grill all hamburger beef patties, covered, 8 minutes total, flipping once halfway through.

    If you want cheeseburgers, then place 2 slices of cheese on top of each beef patty the last minute of grilling.

    5. Remove your burgers from the grill once they are at your desired level of doneness.

    6. Allow them to rest a few minutes before serving to let the juices settle.

    7. Serve with buns and desired toppings.
