Best Ever "Gormet" Burgers

Standard
I know, I know….. I keep saying I am not a big red meat eater and then I post two red meat recipes back to back! Steve has been on vacation this week and both boys have been with us all week; so I am a little out numbered……  Now mind you Steve has been on vacation, I have not.  So I am still working full time, running to soccer practice everyday, keeping up with housework (not so much), and still trying to devote some time to the Blog. Needless to say I needed a little extra iron in my blood this week. So here is my recipe for probably one of the tastiest burgers and super easy you will ever try!

1 pound of leanest ground beef
1package dry onion soup mix
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
fresh ground pepper
1 sweet onion sliced in 1/2″ thick slices
sliced blue cheese ( if you can’t find sliced you can use crumbled)
4 Kaiser rolls
1 tomato
Arugula
Dijon Mustard

Mix soup mix and Worcestershire sacuse with the ground beef and form into 4 patties grind fresh cracked pepper on both sides of burgers.

Grill burgers and onion slices over medium high direct heat for 6 to 7 minutes each side till meat is done to medium rare to medium doneness. If you push on the pad of your thumb the resistance you feel should match the resistance when you push on the burger, for a touch test.  Only flip the meat once and do not press down while the meat is cooking.  You don’t want to push all the  flavor out…… place a slice of blue cheese on each burger and let melt.
Butter both insides of the buns and place just off the heat to get a nice toast on them.
Serve the grilled buns, burgers, and onions with sliced tomatoes, arugula and a dab of Dijon mustard.  You will think that you are in a Gastro Pub in NYC!

About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
