Michaels Hamburgers Recipe

  • 2 pounds ground chuck steak (preferably freshly ground)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Hamburger buns
  • Special equipment: Mesquite charcoal
  1. Place ground meat in large bowl. Add salt and pepper, and mix lightly with hands.
  2. Shape meat into thick, one-third-pound patties, being careful not to press too hard. (The patties should be neither too thin nor too dense, so that they retain their juiciness when grilled.) Set patties on a plate and salt liberally.
  3. Grill the patties over mesquite charcoal grill until medium-rare. Just before the burgers come off the fire, grill buns lightly.
