- Burger Bun
- Chuck Steak
- Cheddar Cheese
- Salt and Pepper
- Caramelized Onions
Step 1: Step 1: to Start Off We Need to Make the Patty.
Setup either a mincer or food processor with the cutting blades.
I’m using chuck beef; I find it has great flavour for a burger. Mince the chuck beef. I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.
Step 2: Slice Some Cheese Into Strips.
Slice some cheese into strips. I’m using cheddar but feel free to experiment with different types of cheese.
Take a hand full of the mince and mould the first patty.
Then layer out the cheese in two layers.
Mould the second patty but make this one 10% larger
This will allow you to fold the edge down and seal the cheese inside.
Place them in the fridge for half an hour just to firm up.
Step 3: Next, You’ll Need to Light a Chimney of Charcoal.
Setup the BBQ for direct grilling.
Step 4: Now, Place the Patty Over the Charcoal.
Make sure to rotate the patty minute.
Cook for 2 minutes before flipping.
Toast your bun now if you like.
Cover with the lid for 2 minutes for beautiful melted cheese in the centre.
Now it’s time to make this burger.
Step 5: Place the Patty on the Bun.
Spoon of a layer of caramelized onions.
Then add some mustard to the top half of the bun before placing it on top.
