Hamburger ala Barefoot Contessa

October 25, 2007 at 4:30 pm Leave a comment

IHO of the World Series (Boston Red Sox vs Colorado Rockies), I decided it would be a great night to eat burgers.

(Recipe from Barefoot Contessa, | photo from me!)

[NOTES: I cut the recipe in 1/2 since its just 2 of us and it made about 6 hamburger patties. Instead of fries, I made baked breaded zucchini for a healthier substitute. We also made them guacamole burgers by adding a dollop of homemade guacamole.]

Makes 12 servings (1 hamburger=1 serving)
Calories/serving = ~353 (
WW pts/serving = ~8


2 pounds ground chuck
1 pound ground sirloin
3 tablespoons steak sauce (recommended: Crosse & Blackwell)
6 extra-large egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
12 hamburger buns


> Carefully mix the meats, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt, and pepper with the tines of a fork, but do not mash it. (I used my fingers, much easier!)
> Lightly form each hamburger and lightly press into a patty shape.
> Make an indentation and put a thin slice of butter inside each hamburger, making sure the butter is entirely encased in the meat.
> Heat a grill, broiler, or saute pan and cook the hamburgers for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until almost done.
> Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes and serve immediately on buns.
