  • Step 7 – Sauté Peppers and Onions – While the patties are cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the red peppers and onions.  Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Step 8 – Cook until tender – Sauté the peppers and onions until they are just tender (approximately 7-8 minutes).

Grilling burgers do not take long as long as your grill has been preheated. Place patties on the grill and grill for about 4 minutes per side over medium heat. You may need to use a meat thermometer to make sure the patties are done.

Cook until the internal temperature of 160 degrees. You may need to cook a minute longer if still pink.
