- 2 pounds ground chuck
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Grilling Method: Direct/Medium Heat
- Being careful not to over-work the meat, season chuck with salt and pepper, and mix until combined. Gently shape the meat into four burgers of equal size and thickness (about ¾ inch thick). Make an imprint in the center with your thumb.
- Spread top of each patty with a thin layer of soft butter.
- Place the unbuttered size directly on the cooking grate and grill for 4 minutes. Turn and spread cooked side with a thin layer of butter. Continue grilling until the meat is no longer pink, 4 to 6 more minutes. Serve immediately.
