Steakhouse Burgers

I love cooking outdoors and also love to experiment with recipes. This burger recipe produces juicy burgers, regardless of whether they are cooked on a wood, charcoal, or gas grill. You can use any type of ground meat, but red meat seems to work best for this recipe. Place on buns of your choice, top with your favorite toppings, and enjoy. Just a note that although the recipe calls for the burgers to be cooked to the USDA recommended internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperatures for rare are 120 to 125, medium-rare: 130 to 135, medium-well: 150 to 155, and well done: 160 to 165.


  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 2 pounds lean ground meat
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs


1.In a bowl, combine milk, Worcestershire Sauce, egg, and steak seasoning. Stir to combine.

2.Add ground meat to liquid mixture, and slowly incorporate. Add breadcrumbs a little at a time, continuing to mix until thoroughly combined.

3.Form into 6 patties, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator. When the grill is hot, place on grill, and cook for around 10 minutes, making sure to cook on both sides. Burgers are done when the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
