Transcript:Quick Tip: Basic Hamburger Recipe
Hi. I'm Krystyna Rittichier with About.com, and today I'll give you a quick tip on how to make a basic hamburger.
Ingredients for Hamburgers
When you're making a hamburger, the only ingredient you really need is ground beef. Anything you add in addition to this is used for flavor. For this hamburger recipe you will need:
- 1 pound lean hamburger
- 3 tbsp worchestershire sauce
- season salt to taste
- pepper to taste
How to Grill Hamburgers
Preheat your grill to high heat. Add the worchestershire sauce to the hamburger meat. Shape your hamburger into 4 or 5 patties. Indent the middle of each patty with your finger. This will help the hamburgers cook faster, and it will prevent the patties from puffing up in the middle. Clean the grill, then rub the grate with a small amount of oil to discourage the burgers from sticking. Place the patties on the grill then season them with salt and pepper. Cook the hamburgers for 5 minutes on each side. Your hamburgers are now ready to serve.
