ground chuck burger recipe

There is little debate that fresh ground chuck makes the most delicious hamburgers. This burger recipe brings you the perfect blend of ingredients to bring out the natural flavor of the fresh ground chuck. 

 

If you do not have your own grinder at home, you can usually ask your butcher to grind it for you. Look for a nice looking roast that has some, but not too much fat running through it.

 

For a real treat, pair this burger recipe with my Roasted Corn on The Cob

 

Tip: if you are you are using a higher quality beef, you can reduce the amount of garlic powder below.
