  • 1 1/2 lb. Ground Beef, 85% (local if you can get it!)

    1 Yellow Onion, sliced

    2 Cloves Garlic, minced

    1/4 c. Crispin Original + 2 Tbsp

    1 Tbsp Worcestershire

    2 Tsp Dijon Mustard

    1/4 tsp Hot Sauce (Tapatio is my fave)

    1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

    1/2 tsp Kosher salt

    1/4 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

    1 Tbs. Butter

    1/2 tsp Sugar

    Aged Cheddar, enough for 4 slices

    Butter Lettuce

    1 Heirloom Tomato, sliced (or regular if you can't find it)

    Buns of Choice


    1) In a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, add butter and allow to melt. Add in onions, and cook
    until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Lower heat to med-low add the cider and continue cooking
    until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside.

    2) Heat your grill to high. Mix ground beef with the 1/4 c. Crispin, Worcestershire, dijon, hot sauce, garlic
    powder and pepper. Make sure that everything is incorporated but be sure to not over mix. Form the
    the hamburger into 4 equal patties, making a slight indent in the middle of each so they don't bulk up
    in the middle as they cook. Sprinkle the patties with salt just before you toss em' on the grill. [If you
    plan on holding the burgers for more than a minute or two, keep them in the fridge.]

    3) The burger will let you know when to flip it; slightly pulling away from the grate and not threatening to
    fall into pieces. Some people swear that you should only give it one flip, but test kitchens have proven
    that there is little to no difference in the burger one way or the other. Just get it close to the desired
    level of doneness and throw some cheese on it until melted. Let the finished burgers sit just a
    moment or two before serving with a big slice of tomato and lettuce.

  • An easy trick to get your burgers all the same size (rather than weighing them), is to grab the lid to a circular tupperware or container and use it as a mold to form the patties. Et voila!
