Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Mc Cormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning (See note in recipe!)
  • salt and pepper

Optional (read post tips)

  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings or olive oil
  • 4 ounces sliced onion, nutritional info in the notes

Instructions

  • Prep: Preheat grill and clean the grate.
  • Method: Break up the ground beef and evenly distribute the Worcestershire sauce and steak seasoning and olive oil if using).
  • Mix gently with your hands to distribute the seasoning and form into three balls. Gently press/pat into patties or use a burger press like I have pictured. If you make a slight depression in the center of your burger, it will help prevent it from puffing up in the middle.
  • Cook: Oil the grate. Season the outside of the burger patties with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper (both sides). Grill to your desired level of doneness. I like mine a little pink in the middle. Serve with your favorite extras but don't forget to count the carbs.
  • Optional: For the caramelized onions... Slice the onions. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium-low heat. When hot, add the onions and saute until softened. Add 1/2 teaspoon of erythritol and cook until beginning to brown or caramelize. This step can take up to 10 minutes.
  • NOTE: Some brands of Montreal Seasoning are saltier than others and people's taste buds are different. You may want to start with half of the amount of seasoning to see how you like it.
