The Ultimate Juicy Burger

Rate this Recipe

Serves 6 | 


2 lbs Jensen’s ultimate burger blend
Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 medium-size onion, cut into 6 thin slices
6 Jensen’s hamburger buns
3 tablespoons butter, melted (optional)
1 large, luscious, ripe red tomatoe, thinly sliced
6 Boston lettuce leaves or iceberg lettuce slices


  1. Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.
  2. Place the burger blend in a large mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon, or mix the meat in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. If possible, avoid mixing the meat with your hands so your fingers don’t warm it.
  3. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions. Working quickly and with a light touch, pat each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Dip patties in ice cold water for 30 seconds before grilling(this will make the juiciest burger you’ve ever had). Generously season each patty on both sides with salt and pepper. Press an onion slice into one side of each patty so that it’s flush with the meat.
  4. Lightly brush the buns with the butter, if using. Arrange the tomatoes and lettuce leaves on an attractive serving platter.
  5. When ready to cook, brush and oil the grill grate. Place the burgers on the hot grate, onion side down. Grill the burgers until cooked to taste, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. To test for doneness, insert an instant-read meat thermometer through the side of a burger into the center. The internal temperature should be about 145 degrees F for medium-rare or, if using commercial ground beef, cook it to at least medium, 160 degrees F.
  6. Meanwhile, place the buns on the hot grate and grill until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  7. To serve, place a lettuce leaf on top of the toasted bun. Top with a burger, tomato slice and cheddar cheese. Top with the other side of the bun and serve at once.
