A Simple classic which always hits the spot!
(Serving Size 1 Burger)
- Prepare a hot fire in a grill. Brush and oil the grill grate.
- In a large bowl, using a spoon, not your hands, gently mix together the ground chuck and sirloin. Run your hands under cold water and then divide the mixture into 6 equal portions. Shape each portion into a patty about 1 inch thick, being careful not to compact the meat too much. (Check to make sure the patties will fit the buns.) Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Make a depression in the center of each patty with your thumb. Refrigerate until the grill is ready.
- Place the patties, indent side up, on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until they are nicely charred on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, place a cheese slice on each patty and put the buns, cut side down, along the edge of the grill, then cover the grill. After about 2 minutes, the cheese should be melted and the buns toasted.
- Place the burgers on the bun bottoms and place the tops alongside. Set out the condiments for diners to add as desired. Serve immediately.
