Servings: 4 burgers


For the burgers:

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 16 ounces 80/20 ground beef
  • ¼ cube beef boullion crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon ketchup
  • ½ tablespoons yellow mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns slightly toasted

For the aioli:

  • cup mayo
  • ½ tablespoon ketchup
  • ½ tablespoon yellow mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Mix all aioli ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until the burgers are done.
  • Add butter to large nonstick saute pan and set to medium heat. Add sliced onions and cook for about 10 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of water to help get the onions a little mushy. Cook until water has evaporated. Remove from heat. 
  • While onions cook, mix ground beef, crushed boullion cube, worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, salt, and pepper. Form into 4 large patties. Heat a cast-iron pan over medium high heat with a large drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add patties and cook for 2 minutes or until bottom started to blacken. Flip patties and cook for 1-2 more minutes or until burgers reach desired doneness. Turn off heat. 
  • Place a patty on the bottom half of the burger buns. Top with caramelized onions. Spread 1½ tablespoons of aioli on the top half of the burger bun. Place on top of burger with onions. Serve burgers immediately.
