Jersey Sure N Simple Burgers

This is the simplest of my burger recipes and yet it is the one the gets the most requests. My family and friends think these burgers require a lot of preparation. These burgers are always a sure hit at my BBQ's. This is the reason they were dubbed my Jersey Sure N Simple burgers.


1 1/2 lbs. 90% lean ground beef
3 teaspoons onion powder divided
3 teaspoons garlic powder divided
6 teaspoons A1 Steak Sauce
vegetable oil to brush grill
6 slices American cheese
6 seeded hamburger rolls
6 dollops of ketchup


Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium high.

Divide beef into six equal patties and place on large platter. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder on top of each patty. Evenly spread 1 teaspoon of A1 sauce on top of this. Turn patties over and repeat process.

To cook patties, brush grill with vegetable oil. Place patties on grill and cover. Cook the patties, turning only once, until done to preference, 5-7 minutes on each side for medium. Place cheese slices on top of patties during the last 1- 2 minutes. Remove patties from grill. Place patties inside rolls, add a dollop of ketchup and serve.


These burgers are a sure hit especially when you need something that is tasty with few items on hand. These burgers also make it easy for tailgating because of their simplicity.
