Beefer's Last Stand
Beefer was my parents first cow, from which the next succession of many cows came and then eventually the demise of Beefer herself. I've almost always had a huge freezer full of homegrown beef at my disposal, but even when I didn't my husband claimed that I made the World's Best Hamburgers. Every one has to have a talent. The burger is my only one.
1 lb farm raised organic beef
1 large sweet onion
1 large Egg
1/2 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon of dried italian seasonings
1 healthy squirt of catsup (1/4 to 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
2 tablespoons grill seasoning
4 leafs Romaine lettuce
Barbecue sauce, any flavor.
Put beef into a big bowl. Cut 4 thin slices of onion off of the onion and set aside and put the rest of the onion into a food processor. Pulse the processor blades to finely chop the onion. Add to the meat bowl. Add Egg, Breadcrumbs and rub the dried italian seasoning between your palms as you're putting it into the mix. Add catsup, worchestershire sauce and grill seasoning. Gently mix together with your hands, don't overwork it. Divide mixture into four and press into patties. Grill to your desired temperature. Butter the kaiser rolls and toast on the grill. Top burgers with the romaine lettuce, reserved slices of onion and barbecue sauce. Enjoy.
That's it. A simple recipe from a simple cook. It's a good burger, it doesn't even need the toppings and sometimes I eat it all on it's own without a bun or any toppings. It is, coincidentally, the same recipe I use for my meatloaf and my meatballs. Sometimes I make up a huge batch of a couple pounds of hamburger at a time and make patties, meatloaf and meatballs all at one time to freeze. I hope you enjoy.
