Thedford's Story

For you guys who like to grill, this one is for you.
This is so easy and so simple. If you are a hamburger lover like my family and I are, you will love this.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Get creative and mix up different seasonings if you like. This technique is terrific and can carry an array of flavors!

2 lb
ground chuck
1 c
1 Tbsp
mccormick montreal steak seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix the ingredents in a large mixing bowl and form your burgers. I like to make 3 burgers per pound.
For best results, cook your burgers on an outdoor gas or charcoal grill. Cook until medium.
Just add your buns and favorite toppins and you are set.
(I figure 1/2 cup of water per pound of ground beef. Adjust your seasoning for the amount of burgers)
Sometimes I leave the steak seasoning out and just go with the salt and pepper. The secret to the juiciest burger is the water.

    I learned that secret about the water a while back, you are exactly right, that makes them sooo juicy.

    Used the water secret at noon, but just cooked the burgers in a frying pan. Made a big difference. Thanks.

    I love the McCormick brand seasoning packets! I never thought to use them with hamburgers! I'll have to try this next time I make burgers!
