An all-new burger experience. The surprise center adds a huge burst of flavor. All my taste testers agreed. These are amazing on their own — no need for any toppings. See how to prepare the burgers here.

Ingredients

Filling

  • 1 tablespoon Gefen Olive Oil

  • 1 (6-oz./170-g.) package sliced beef fry (cured and smoked), diced

  • 1 medium onion, diced

Hamburgers

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

For the Filling

1.

Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add diced beef fry and toss until crispy, about four to six minutes. Remove to a plate.

2.

In the same frying pan, sauté the diced onion over a medium/high flame until golden, about 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly.

3.

Remove onions from heat and combine with the beef fry. Set aside.

Notes:

Beef fry is available in the deli section of most grocery stores. If you prefer, you can use pastrami as an alternative.

Assemble and Cook the Burgers

1.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, panko crumbs, barbecue sauce, grated onion, egg yolks, salt, and pepper.

2.

To form uniform patties, take a three-inch jar lid. Place a small piece of plastic wrap on top. Press a small handful of ground beef mixture into the lid. Press down and level the mixture, then turn over onto a lined baking sheet. (You may refrigerate these patties until you’re ready to add the beef fry.)

3.

Place one tablespoon of the beef fry and onion mixture in the center of half of the patties. Top each filled patty with a second, unfilled patty. Seal the edges.

4.

Grill patties for three to four minutes on each side.

Tips:

These burgers can be frozen raw after they’re filled and grilled when you’re ready.

This is now my go-to hamburger receipe! Easy, delicious hamburgers that everyone agrees on! I don’t do the filling, just work the onions and beef fry into the hamburger mixture. I make enough each time to freeze– excellent quick dinner with green beans!
Also wonderful with ground bison!
