1 1/2 pounds ground buffalo

1/2 pound ground chuck

1 medium onion, finely chopped, about 1 cup

3 tablespoons sun-dried tomato paste

1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4 hamburger buns, for serving


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
  2. Put the buffalo, chuck, onion, tomato paste, and liquid smoke in a large bowl and season generously with salt and pepper. Mix everything together with your hands until it is well combined.
  3. Take about 1 cup (8 ounces) of the meat mixture and form it into patties with your hands or in a hamburger press. When you have them all made, grill them, turning frequently, until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes total. (Alternately, cook them in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes.) Serve on hamburger rolls with the toppings of your choice.
