Classic Beef Hamburger Recipe


  • 1 pound ground beef (preferably 80% lean and 20% fat)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Toppings (lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, cheese, ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc.)


1. Prepare the Patties:

  • In a mixing bowl, gently combine the ground beef with salt and pepper. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the burgers dense.
  • Divide the meat into 4 equal portions and shape them into patties. Make a slight indentation in the center of each patty to prevent it from puffing up during cooking.

2. Cook the Patties:

  • Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook the patties for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare to medium doneness. Adjust the cooking time based on your preference.

3. Add Cheese (Optional):

  • If you want cheese on your burgers, place a slice of your favorite cheese on each patty during the last minute of cooking. Cover the pan or grill to help melt the cheese.

4. Prepare the Buns:

  • While the patties are cooking, you can lightly toast the hamburger buns on the grill or in a toaster.

5. Assemble the Burgers:

  • Place a cooked patty on the bottom half of each bun.
  • Add your favorite toppings and condiments. You can customize this part to your liking.

6. Serve:

  • Put the top half of the bun on each burger, and your hamburgers are ready to be served.

Feel free to get creative with your toppings and experiment with different seasonings for the patties. You can also explore alternative meat options or plant-based alternatives if you prefer. Enjoy your homemade hamburgers!
