Homemade Grilled Beefy Steak Burgers

Yesterday was a gorgeous day that would not have been complete without putting something on the grill and enjoying dinner on the patio. I had bought a sirloin over the weekend and decided to make my own burgers.  If you’ve never made your own hamburgers it’s really quite simple and does not require the purchase of a meat grinder. More importantly the burgers have this great beefy flavor and are incredibly juicy.  I chose to make Bacon Blue Cheese burgers because Craig really loves them, but obviously you can top them with whatever you choose.  So if you have a few extra minutes give this simple recipe a try; you’ll be glad you did…

You will need:
1 ¾ – 2lbs boneless sirloin steak
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
Place your sirloin steak in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes or just until it becomes firm to the touch.  Remove and discard any excess fat and cut the meat into 1 1/2 “cubes and then place them in the food processor that’s been fitted with a large blade.
Next add the remaining ingredients and begin pulsing the meat until it approaches the typical burger consistency. 
    Remove the meat from the processor and form it into burgers. 
     Grill as you normally would. This recipe makes 4 half pound patties.

I have never ground my own meat before. I have for chicken I guess, but not beef. What a great idea, I am sure the burgers are amazing!

Holly….what a great idea to put frozen steak in the food processor to grind for burgers! And blue cheese are my favorite as well! Gorgeous photo as always! : )
