Embracing Motherhood How to Make the Best Grilled Burgers

Making hamburgers seems like such a simple meal, why even write a recipe for it? Well yes, hamburgers are simple, but the way that I make mine are just so dang good that I had to write it down! If you make this recipe, I guarantee that you will get compliments!

A good hamburger first of all starts with some high quality grass-fed beef. (Cows are meant to eat grass, not grain, by the way.) We get ours from a local farm for $5/lb, but you can also buy it here.


  • 1 lb Ground Beef (Preferably grass-fed)
  • 2 t. Real Salt (I buy my Real Salt in bulk here, you can buy a shaker here, or a refill pouch here.)
  • 1 t. Pepper (Buy it here.)
  • 1 t. Garlic Powder (I buy mine here or you can buy it here or here.)
  • 1 t. Onion Powder (I buy mine here or you can buy it here.)
  • 2 t. Bragg Liquid Aminos (Buy it here.)


  1. Start the grill and set it to medium/high.
  2. If the meat is frozen, fill up the sink (or a bowl) with warm water, and let soak for about 30-40 minutes.
  3. Divide the meat roughly into fourths, then eighths.
  4. Sprinkle generously with seasonings. (I don’t measure, just shake.)

  5. Mix the seasonings in with your hands as you form patties.

  6. After the grill has had a chance to heat up, scrape it off with a grill brush.
  7. Put the burgers on and turn the heat down to low/medium.
  8. Cook for 8 minutes. Flip and cook for 4 minutes. (After you flip is a great time to add cheese if you want it melted.)
  9. Serve and enjoy!
