burgerBefore we begin…

  • You will need to get 1/2 LB of skirt steak for each person, and COARSELY grind it.
  • Cut the meat into one inch cubes across the grain
  • Spread out and freeze it for an hour before grinding
  • Don’t overpack or overwork the meat
  • If you do not have a meat grinder, pulse on your food processor briefly
  • Alternately go to the supermarket and get 85/15 hamburger or ask the butcher to grind it for you.  Be sure to specify a coarse grind though.

Ingredients to feed 4 people

2 LB hamburger
– see notes above
Melted butter to brush on top during grilling
Optional Condiments
Ketchup, mustard, pickle, relish, onion, tomato, cheese, lettuce, jalapeño

Step by Step

  1. Divide your meat into four servings (if there are four people)
  2. Flatten into round patties.  Do not overwork your meat.
  3. Put a dimple in the center of your hamburger patty. This will keep it from rounding.
  4. Cook both sides on low heat initially. About 300 to 350°
  5. Brush the top with butter each time you turn it over to keep your burger juicy
  6. When both sides have browned (about 3 minutes per side) finish at about 450°. This will give both sides a nice sear.
  7. Cook until internal temperature is 125-130° (about 3 more minutes per side)
  8. Place on toasted sesame seed bun, and top with a slice of cheddar cheese.
  9. Toss the onion and lettuce briefly in the remaining burger juice in the pan to give it a nice flavor
  10. Serve with condiments

Oh, one more thing…

  • Carl’s Jr.’s Original Six Dollar Burger (since there are other variations now) is a hefty burger with a charbroiled Black Angus beef patty, two slices of American cheese, lettuce, two slices of tomato, red onion, pickles, mustard, mayo, and ketchup on a toasted sesame seed bun.  Grandpa thinks his is better.
  • You can make your own French fries using Grandpa’s Recipe.  Another fun option is to make medallions rather than the standard long fries.

This is a recipe that has been created by Robert (Grandpa) Andrews.
