"Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger."
-Abbie Hoffman

The refrigerator light goes on...

Plain hamburgers are great, but with just a few added ingredients you can really ramp up the flavor. By adding umami from the Worcestershire, mustard, and garlic powder, all you need is a bit of mayonnaise or some mustard, tomato, lettuce, and maybe onion for a perfect burger.

Easy and healthy Cookout Burgers, a delicious recipe from Dr. Gourmet
In a non-reactive bowl, whisk together the salt, mustard, Worcestershire, garlic powder, and pepper.

Add the ground beef and mix thoroughly.

Pat the ground beef into four 4-ounce patties.

Place a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is heated, place the burgers in the pan.

For medium-rare burgers, cook 4-5 minutes, then turn over and cook for another 4-5 minutes. (Adjust time as needed for desired doneness.)

Serve on hamburger buns with accompaniments of your choice.
