Grilled Steak Burgers
Most so-called steak burgers are plain beef patties drowning in A1. We wanted what the best steakhouses would be proud to serve: robust steak-like burgers with a deep, crusty char.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a burger with the big beefy flavor and crusty char of a grilled steak. Ground sirloin, the most flavorful ground beef, was a natural choice, but unfortunately it’s also quite lean. A seasoned butter added richness to the sirloin, but something was missing. Steak sauce! In about five minutes, we simmered up our own intensely flavored sauce, perfect for serving with the burger, smearing on the bun, and even mixing into the beef before cooking.
