My Father’s Day wish…a perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked smash burger.
Oklahoma Onion Smash Burgers
2 pounds 80/20 ground beef
2 medium yellow onions peeled and sliced thin
Kosher salt
6-8 hamburger buns
6-8 slices American cheese
Fresh-ground pepper
Montreal Steak Seasoning
condiments of choice (I simply like pickles, maybe mustard)
vegetable oil
Using a mandolin or knife, slice onion into paper-thin slices, place into a bowl, add 1 teaspoon of salt, mix and cover bowl with lid or plastic wrap, and place into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Form 6-8 equal-sized ground beef balls and place the balls onto a parchment lined pan.
Preheat flat top grill for high heat.
Drain onions of excess liquid. Place them into a clean dish towel and squeeze out any additional moisture. Transfer to a clean dish and season the onions with pepper.
Lightly oil griddle surface and set down about 1/4 cup of sliced onions with a ground beef ball on top. Using a spatula or press, smash the ball into the onion, creating a burger patty. Season the patty with the Montreal Steak Seasoning. Cook for 3-4 minutes, gently turn and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 165 degrees.
Once cooked, assemble the burgers with your chosen condiments and enjoy!
