I have several hamburger recipes that we use from time to time. This is one on our favorites.
1 medium white onion -grated
1/2 medium green bell pepper -grated
1 package Lipton onion soup mix
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 cup A-1 Steak Sauce
1 to 2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 1/2 pounds ground round beef
Recipe for Jim Beam Marinade -see below
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except meat and marinade – mix well. Break ground beef into small pieces and add to the bowl incorporating meat into mixture with a large spoon. Divide into eight equal portions and form into balls. Shape into patties – dip hands in ice water if necessary. Place on large baking pan and chill for several hours. Preheat grill on medium high. Grill patties for 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Baste both sides with the steak marinade while grilling.
Stack on the cheese, bacon, lettuce & tomatoes and enjoy a taste we like at my house.
