Servings 4 Burgers


  • Beef Patties(or use 16 oz of 80/20 ground beef)
  • 8 ounces sirloin steak meat with fat
  • 8 ounces chuck steak meat with fat
  • kosher salt
  • Secret Sauce
  • 0.25 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1.5 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • Burger Preparation
  • 16 dill pickle chips
  • 4 slices ripe tomato
  • 4 fresh iceberg lettuce, sized to fit the bun
  • yellow mustard
  • 4 slices deli-cut American Cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns


Secret Sauce

  1. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, sugar, and vinegar in small bowl.
  2. Stir to combine.

Beef Patties

  1. Pick two nice pieces of beef (i.e. sirloin, chuck) looking for those that have a decent amount of fat and ask the meat department to grind them for you using the coarse grind.
  2. Press the ground beef into 4 even size burgers.
  3. Sprinkle each patty on both sides with the salt.
  4. Place on the grill and do not move for 2 minutes.
  5. Before you flip the burger, slather it with yellow mustard.
  6. Cook the burger until the internal temperature is 135 degrees. Do not smash down on the patties while cooking, as it will push out the juice and make the burger dry.
  7. Remove the burgers from the heat to a plate. Lay the American cheese onto the burger to let it start to melt.
  8. Lightly toast the buns so the cut side is crisped and browned.

Burger Preparation

  1. On the bottom bun, place a tablespoon of sauce, 4 slices of pickle, one slice of tomato, and one piece of iceberg lettuce.
  2. Place a little more sauce on the top bun. Place the burger on the lettuce and top with the top bun.
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy!


Note: You may also use 80/20 ground beef instead.
