Worcestershire Glazed Burgers

Pairs Well With

Makes 8 burgers


Canola oil for grill grates

2 1/2 lb. ground beef

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 T Worcestershire sauce
8 hamburger buns-preferably a sturdy whole wheat bun

Cheese, lettuce leaves, pickles, and sliced tomatoes, for serving


Set up grill for direct cooking and heat to medium-high. Once hot, clean and lightly oil grates with oil. 

Gently shape beef into 8 balls, then flatten into 3/4-inch-thick patties. Using your thumb, make a shallow (1 1/2-inch-wide) indent in the top of each patty. Season with salt and pepper.

Grill patties, indent sides up, until browned and patties easily lift from the grates, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and grill, basting with Worcestershire, to desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium.

Serve burgers on buns with cheese, onions, lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes alongside. Editor's Note: to up the flavor use grilled onions and for the cheese I'd use sharp cheddar or smoked gouda.
