You Can Cook: Hamburgers

So You Think You Can't Cook...

Well, you're wrong! This week, we'll explore simple recipes to feed your family in style, even if your cooking experience only includes calling the pizza place!

Difficulty: *

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tbsp. A1 or other steak sauce
  • 1 tsp. Pepper or mixed steak seasoning
Method:
  1. Place ground beef in a bowl. Using your hands, knead it for a few minutes to soften and warm slightly. This will make it easier to mix in steak sauce and seasoning. If you're grossed out by using your hands, use a fork to thoroughly work ground meat.
  2. Mix in steak sauce and seasoning.
  3. Split meat into 3 or 4 equal portions and form into patties.
Cooking Options:
  • Place patties in a saute pan and cook on medium high heat for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
  • Place patties on an electric grill and monitor carefully until done. No need to flip.
  • Place patties in a foil pan under the broiler and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
  • Place patties on tinfoil on a charcoal or gas grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
How to tell if it's done:
  • Make a small slit in the center of the patty and look inside. Bright red means it's rare...and the lighter the pink, the more done it is.
Enjoy! Top with onions, tomatoes, lettuce, or steak sauce for a yummy dinner anyone can cook!
