Achieve burger perfection every time with our time-tested recipe and grilling tips


There’s an art to crafting the classic burger patty. A few essential rules to keep in mind: Don’t overwhelm it with too many spices, keep it simple, and make sure you’re using quality meat.

To start, you’ll need ground beef, chopped onion and garlic, and Worcestershire sauce. For juicy burgers, choose beef with 15-20% fat. Mix together and place formed patties on a preheated grill, only turning the patties once. Let patties sit for six minutes before finishing off with some salt and pepper, then toast hamburger buns and assemble burgers with all the classic fixings.
