Well seasoned, juicy burgers with a refreshing smoky flavor. This has been my favorite homemade burger for years. After eating one recently, decided to provide you with the recipe!
The inspiration for this recipe was a desire for a great tasting burger without garlic (fresh or powder). Nothing against garlic. I just wanted a different flavor.
So, I got busy in the kitchen adding a some simple ingredients which include Worcestershire sauce and Liquid Smoke (see recipe notes).
- 2 pounds ground beef or ground chuck
- 1/2 teaspoon salt Or use Season All Salt.
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons Worchestershire Sauce
- 1-1/2 teaspoons Liquid Smoke See recipe notes.
- 1 large egg, beaten
- vegetable oil cooking spray Or use 1-1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil.
- In medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients. Set aside.
- Spray a grill pan or large frying pan with vegetable oil cooking spray. Or use a paper towel to grease with vegetable oil. Warm over low heat until hot (but not smoking).
- While warming pan, prepare hamburgers. Scoop 1/4 cup (or more if preferred) of mixture. Roll into ball and flatten to desired thickness.
- Placed in hot prepared pan. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side OR until insides are no longer red. Thin burgers cook faster than thick burgers.
- Drain on paper towels. Serve warm or hot.
