July 11th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef (grass fed)
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped fine
1 tablespoon fresh marjoram, chopped fine
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped fine
1 tablespoon ground mustard powder
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt/pepper

Directions

Combine all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and form out patties. Place on wax paper and place in freezer for approximately 10 minutes on each side until hard but not totally frozen. Preheat the grill making sure that it is well oiled and clean. Make sure heat is steady and high while cooking burgers. Do not flip burgers multiple times. The key is to flip the burger once or twice but no more. Minimizing flipping also ensures that the burgers stay well formed. Generally speaking, cook meat for two minutes per side for rare burgers, three minutes per side for medium, and four minutes per side for well done burgers. Top with cheese or the condiments of your choice.
