In honor of Memorial Day this year, I salute our devoted servicemen and women with the most American thing I can think of.....a cheeseburger! NYC loves you and thanks you for your devoted service. So up kick your feet, grab a beer and enjoy the guilty pleasure of a greasy burger because, baby, you've earned it.
1 lb ground beef
1 tbsp BBQ rub seasoning
1 tbsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 tsp dried parsley
1 avocado, sliced
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced
4 slices pepperjack cheese
4 hamburger buns
- Mix together ground beef, BBQ rub, Worchestershire sauce and parsley. Form into 4 flat patties (about 1/4 inch each). Note: try not to overwork the meat because that will result in tough burgers.
- Heat a frying pan coated with cooking spray over high heat. Add burgers and cook for 3 minutes.
- Flip burgers and add cheese. Cover and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
- Assemble burgers on buns with avocado and tomato slices. Enjoy!
