Best Burger

  • Pairs With: Montepulciano D'Abruzzo
  • Difficulty Level: Medium
  • Prep Time: 25 min.
  • Grilling Time: 8 min.
  • 18 oz ground beef, at least 20% fat content
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 slices cheese of choice (optional)
  • 4 sesame seed buns, split
  • tomato ketchup
  • 1 small curly leaf lettuce, torn into leaves
  • 2 large vine tomatoes, cored and cut into thin rings
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. For the burgers: Preheat the grill to a moderately hot temperature.
  2. Place the ground beef in a large mixing bowl and add 2 tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  3. Incorporate the salt and pepper into the ground beef with your hands. Divide the mixture into four and shape into patties between your hands.
  4. Press your thumb into the center of each patty to leave an indent. Brush both sides of the patties with a little melted butter.
  5. Carefully lay onto the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes, turning once, until the patties are lightly charred; place a slice of cheese on top of each patty (if using) about a minute before removing from the grill.
  6. Remove from the grill and place on top of the bottom halves of the buns. Top with ketchup, lettuce, tomato, onion, and bun.
  7. To serve: Serve on platters or wooden boards with French fries on the side.
