Inner Cheese Burger

11 Jul

An episode of Man Vs. Food inspired my beau to make these delicious burgers.

Time: 15 min           Serves: 2


  • Burgers

  • 1/2 pound ground sirloin
  • Lawry’s Seasoned Salt – to taste
  • black pepper, freshly ground – to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Grolsch beer or similar
  • 2 slices (about 2 oz.) extra sharp cheddar cheese (we used Hoffman’s)
  • To Serve

  • 2 Brioche buns
  • spicy brown mustard
  • 4 slices fresh tomato
  • 4 pieces romaine lettuce
  • Kosher dill pickles

How to make it

  • Burgers

  • Put water in medium skillet and heat over medium.
  • Season beef with Lawry’s and black pepper. Separate into 4 equal portions and roll into balls. Flatten to between 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. Fold cheese slices so stacked 2×2 inches. Place in center of one patty, top with another patty and gently press edges and if needed push edges back up to retain patty shape. Repeat.
  • Place patties in skillet. Cover and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side, until water evaporates. When turning patties be careful not to press down or squeeze. Add beer after water has evaporated, cover and continue to cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from heat.
  • Note that some cheese will leak out and it’s best not to over handle to meat as it compromises the juiciness.
  • Serve with recommended fixings or your favorites.
