Steak House Burgers

  • 2 lbs ground chuck 85/15 or 80/20 grind
  • Seasoned Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • 4 bakery fresh buns
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Sweet Onion - medium size - sliced 1/4" thick
  • 8 oz white button mushrooms - sliced 1/4" thick
  • 4 oz smoked gouda cheese slices 4 slices
  • 4 oz Iceberg or Romaine Lettuce
  • 4 oz of homemade steak sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil


  1. Pull ground chuck out of fridge while sauteing mushrooms and onions

  2. Slice and butter the buns.
  3. Heat skillet to medium heat and add olive oil
  4. Preheat your grill to high heat while you cook the mushrooms and onions. Temperature should be over 500 degrees.
  5. Add onions to pan and saute for 10 min

  6. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 min
  7. Reduce heat to lowest setting while grilling

  8. Form four 1/2 lb burgers. Burgers should be 1/2" thick. If they are too thick they will end up like meatballs.
  9. Season both sides of burgers with seasoned salt and fresh ground pepper
  10. Grill burgers for 5 minutes a side, flipping once. Press on the middle of the burger with you finger to get a feel for doneness. Burgers should be slightly firm in the center.  Internal temperature should be around 135 F for a nice medium to medium rare burger. 

  11. Add cheese to burgers and place buns on the grill to toast them.  Close the grill for 30 sec or so and you should be done!

  12. Remove and assemble burgers.
