Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • 3 pounds 80 percent lean ground beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 6 kaiser rolls
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • Assorted toppings, for serving (right)
Directions

Preheat a grill to medium high and oil the grates. Place the ground beef in a medium mixing bowl. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Add a few dashes of Tabasco sauce, then with your hands, mix the meat and seasoning well.

Form the meat into six 1-inch-thick patties and place on the grill. Cover and cook 3 minutes, then rotate, leaving them on the same side, and cook 3 more minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side.

Meanwhile, slice the rolls in half and spread each cut side with 1/2 tablespoon butter. Grill the rolls, cut-side down, until lightly toasted. Build the burgers with assorted toppings.

Sauteed Mushrooms

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add 1 pound sliced mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook 2 minutes. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons broth or wine and cook 6 to 8 more minutes.

Caramelized Onions

Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet over low heat. Add 2 large sliced red onions and 3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar. Cook until caramelized, tossing occasionally, about 20 minutes.

Pico de Gallo

Finely chop 5 plum tomatoes, 1/2 large onion, 3 jalapeno peppers and 1 bunch cilantro. Toss with the juice of 1/2 lime, and salt to taste.

Bacon

Cook over medium-high heat until crisp.
