Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 7 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 white or whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • 6 tomato slices, for serving
  • 6 lettuce leaves, for serving


In a large bowl, combine the beef, oil, Worcestershire sauce, minced onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Form into 6 patties.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers to the pan and cook, turning once, until the burgers reach the doneness you like, about 7 minutes for medium- rare.

Sandwich the burgers inside the buns with the tomato and lettuce. And don’t forget to pass the ketchup and mustard!
