Oklahoma Griddle Onion Burgers
1 pound Certified Angus Beef ® ground chuck
1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1 large sweet onion, cut in half and sliced super thin
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, beef fat or bacon fat
4 soft burger buns
4 slices American cheese (optional)
Yellow mustard to taste (optional)
Combine salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne to create a signature burger seasoning.
Portion ground beef evenly into 4 loosely packed balls.
Heat griddle or cast iron pan to medium high.
Working with one or two burgers at a time works best. Add oil or fat to cooking surface and spread evenly.
When oil begins to smoke, add 1/4 the onions; sear for 1 minute and top with one ball of beef.
Smash burger ball into onion with back of metal spatula with no holes to make a round patty less than 1/2-inch thick on top of onions.
Season burger with a sprinkling of burger seasoning.
Allow onion and burger to develop a deep brown sear, 2-3 minutes. Flip.
Top with more seasoning to taste, a smear of mustard (optional) and top half of bun; sear until burger is cooked through, 1-2 minutes (160 degrees F internal temperature).
Toast bottom bun half on flattop.
Flip bottom bun onto a plate and stack with cheese and burger.
