Introduction

Achieve burger perfection with this ultimate grilled burgers recipe. Juicy, flavorful, and perfectly cooked, these burgers will be the star of your next cookout.

Choose the Right Beef

Select ground beef with an 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio. This ensures the burgers stay juicy and flavorful without being too greasy.

Prepare the Patties

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix gently to combine, being careful not to overwork the meat.

Form the Patties

Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each into a patty about 3/4-inch thick. Make a slight indentation in the center of each patty to prevent them from puffing up during grilling.

Preheat the Grill

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 375-400°F (190-200°C). Ensure the grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.

Grill the Patties

Place the patties on the grill over direct heat. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) for medium doneness. Avoid pressing down on the patties to retain their juices.

Toast the Buns

While the burgers are grilling, toast the burger buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes until they are golden brown and slightly crispy.

Assemble the Burgers

Place each grilled patty on a toasted bun. Add your favorite toppings such as lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles, and onions. Spread condiments like ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise on the buns as desired.
