How to Shape and Seasoned Patties:

After combining the seasoning ingredients for the hamburger patties, divide the mixture into 4 thick patties. They will come to about ½ pound each. By keeping the patties thick, this gives the patties a nice char when grilled.

Season the burgers well to ensure that they are full of flavor.

How Long to Grill a Burger:

Grill the burgers for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side. This allows for the burger to cook thoroughly. We allow the burger to cook at least 5 minutes on each side instead of continually flipping the burger.

What to Serve with Burgers:

When we make these Steakhouse Burger, we like to make sides that we can prepare directly on the grill. This makes for an easy cleanup.

  • Parmesan Grilled Zucchini Recipe – Easy Parmesan Zucchini is the perfect side dish to make the next time you grill. We love to roast zucchini but grilling zucchini directly on the grill gives the zucchini that perfect grill marks.
  • Foil Pack Grilled Mushrooms RecipeGrilled Mushrooms in Foil Pack is my favorite way to make mushrooms. Placing the sliced mushrooms in a foil pack, locks in the moisture and cooks them perfectly.
  • Cheesy Foil Pack Potatoes RecipeEasy Cheesy Grilled Potatoes in Foil only requires a few simple ingredients to make the best grilled side dish. The slice potatoes are seasoned and wrapped in foil and grilled. Then topped with shredded cheese and heated to perfection.

  • Meat Thermometer – Use an instant-read meat thermometer to make sure that the beef is cooked to a safe temperature before eating.
