Rock Cafe Old Fashioned Greasy Hamburger
Best of the Best from Oklahoma, page 153


1/4 pound coarsely ground beef

1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon finely chopped onion

Instructions :
Mix all ingredients; lightly pat into a burger about 1/2 inch thick. If you
want a juicy burger, don't pack the meat. If the meat is too lean, mix a
little ground suet with the patty. Fry patty on grill or in iron skillet
for a few minutes, turn and cook a few minutes longer. Overcooking dries
out the meat.
Lightly butter the top and bottom of a bun, place on grill until golden

brown. Spread mustard on the bottom half, pile with chopped onions,
pickles, and meat patty. Pat the bun with a spatula loaded with hamburger
grease. Provide lettuce, tomato, and catsup to be used as desired.
