This burger however is the kind of burger that nobody would ever say no to. Not too thin, not too thick; can be grilled on the stove or on an outside grill; no eggs, breadcrumbs or weird things in it; just pure beefy goodness that makes a perfect vessel for any toppings your heart desires.

Step 1
Put the Lean Ground Beef (1 lb) in a big mixing bowl.
Step 2
Carefully use your fingers to mix in Salt (to taste) , Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , and Onion Powder (to taste) . Don't knead, mangle, squeeze or squidge. Keep the meat fluffy and pebbly.
Step 3
Form beef into loosely packed patties. Gently pat each handful into a ball and make a dent in the middle of each burger patty.
Step 4
Add the Vegetable Oil (to taste) to the pan and grill. Don't press on your burgers or you'll lose the juiciness of the burger to the pan. Flip burger a couple of times to distribute said juiciness.
Step 5
Add cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, caramelized onions, whatever floats your boat and dig in.
