Ingredients
  • Patties:
  • 1 pound ground brisket
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • Layers:
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced paper thin
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 4 slices pepper Jack cheese
  • Buns:
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 8 to 12 pickle slices
  • 2 cups finely shredded lettuce
  • Yellow mustard, for topping
Directions
  • For the patties: In a large bowl, gently mix the brisket, salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Make into 4 equal-sized patties.

  • For the layers: In a cast-iron pan on medium heat, add the butter and then the red onions in 4 piles. Immediately place a patty on each mound of onions and gently press to settle. Cook until the onions char a bit, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip each burger, keeping the onions with them so that they now rest on top. Cover and cook until desired doneness. Transfer the patties to a plate and immediately top with the American cheese first, then the pepper Jack. Cover with aluminum to allow the cheeses to melt.

  • For the buns: Wipe out the pan and keep it on medium heat. Butter the outsides of the buns, then place them buttered-side down on the pan and cook until toasted, about 2 minutes.

  • Place a patty on each bottom bun and top with pickles, lettuce, a squirt of mustard and the top bun.
