The Basic Burger is simply made up of salt, pepper, and lean ground chuck. Enhance the burger with your favorite toppings and toasted buns.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine chuck, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Gently blend with a fork. Use moistened hands to form 8 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Step 2

Grill or broil burgers over moderate heat (about 5 inches from heat source) on one side for 5 minutes. Carefully turn and cook on other side for about 4 minutes for medium-rare burgers. Serve on warm buns, topped as desired.
