Herbed Beef Burger


1lb ground beef
2 T chopped fresh thyme
2 T chopped fresh chives
2 T chopped fresh marjoram
1 T ground mustard powder
2 T Worcestershire sauce


Mix all ingredients together and form patties. Place on wax paper and place in freezer for approximately10 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.
