Recipe Preparation

  1. Combine salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne to create a signature burger seasoning. Portion ground beef evenly into 4 loosely packed balls.
  2. Preheat the griddle or cast iron skillet to medium-high.
  3. Working with one or two burgers at a time works best. Add oil or fat to the cooking surface and spread evenly. When oil begins to smoke, add 1/4 the onions; sear for 1 minute and top with one ball of beef. Smash the burger ball into the onion with the back of a metal spatula with no holes to make a round patty less than 1/2 inch thick on top of the onions. Season the burger with a sprinkling of burger seasoning.
  4. Allow onion and burger to develop a deep brown sear, for 2-3 minutes. Flip. Top with more seasoning to taste, a smear of mustard (optional), and the top half of the bun; sear until burger is cooked through, 1-2 minutes (160°F (71°C) internal temperature). Toast the bottom bun half on the flattop. Flip the bottom bun onto a plate and stack with cheese and burger.
