A juicy beef burger is an immensely satisfying and mouthwatering dish that has captured the hearts of burger lovers worldwide. What makes this dish so irresistible is high-quality beef with high-fat content, expert seasoning, and careful cooking techniques that result in a juicy, flavorful burger that is simply unforgettable. The fat content is what gives the burger its signature juiciness and flavour, making it an indulgent treat for burger lovers. The beef is carefully seasoned with just the right amount of spices, allowing the natural taste of the beef to shine through while adding a burst of flavour to each bite.

When it comes to cooking the perfect juicy beef burger, several techniques can be used to achieve the best results. Grilling and pan-frying are the most popular methods, as they allow the fat to render and create a delicious crust on the outside of the patty. Overcooking the burger can result in a dry and tough patty, so it is important to cook it to the desired level of doneness to preserve the juiciness and flavour. To prepare this juicy burger,

1. Choose high-quality beef:

As mentioned earlier, the quality of the beef is crucial to making a juicy burger. Choose fresh beef with a high-fat content,

2. Season the beef:

In a pan, sautee onion and minced garlic with butter then add to the beef, add 2 tbsp all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup milk, 3 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped), 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste.

3. Form the patties:

Divide the beef into equal portions and form them into patties. Be careful not to overwork the meat, as this can result in a tough patty.

4. Heat the grill or pan:

Preheat the grill or pan to medium-high heat. If using a grill, brush it with oil to prevent the burgers from sticking.

5. Cook the burgers:

Cook the burgers for 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare, 4-5 minutes for medium, and 5-6 minutes for medium well.

6. Add a slice of cheese to each patty and cook for an additional minute.

7. Toast the buns on the grill or in the oven.

8. Add the burgers to the buns then add desired toppings.

9. Serve and enjoy: Serve the burgers and enjoy while they are still hot and juicy.

  • 1 lb ground beef or 4 cups
  • 1 medium onion roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp parsley freshly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 medium buns


  • In a medium pan, sautee the chopped onions in butter then add garlic. Remove once the garlic softens and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef and all the ingredients listed and mix by hand until the mixture is smooth. Stop mixing once it looks even.
  • Divide the meat into 8 patties. Shape them just slightly bigger than buns as they shrink during cooking.
  • Set the patties on a baking sheet and use a spoon to press a dent in the center so they don't puff up as they cook. (at this point you can stack the patties for later use by separating them with a sheet of wax or parchment paper)
  • Preheat the skillet to medium heat (approximately 350-400 degrees F)
  • Cook to the desired doneness. 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 4-5 minutes for medium, and 5-6 minutes for medium-well.
  • Add a slice of cheese to each patty and cook for an additional minute.
  • Toast the buns on the grill or in the oven.
  • Add the burgers to the buns then top with your favourite burger toppings. I added pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo/sriracha and ketchup.
  • Serve and enjoy: Serve the burgers and enjoy while they are still hot and juicy.
