    We are thrilled that burger season (and grilling season) has arrived. For more on making the perfect burger on the grill, see the related article “How to Grill the Perfect Burger.” If you prepare a lot of our family’s favorite Mexican street corn salad this summer, you’ll have enough to put in these burgers, or you may use the smaller recipe we’ve supplied in the recipe card below.

    The meat is another tasty component of these burgers. The cattle used to produce Country Natural Beef are pasture-raised, given a vegetarian diet, kept in a safe and enriching environment, and never given antibiotics or additional hormones; the company is owned entirely by family ranchers who have achieved G.A.P. Step 4 Animal Welfare Certification. Plus, they’re a Whole30-approved business! And I’ve tried a lot of ground beef in my day, and this is the finest of the best. Their products are clearly superior, and I am thrilled to be working with them today.

    Instructions

    Salad with Mexican street corn:

    Mix everything together in a standard-sized mixing bowl. Try it out, and if it needs more salt or other seasonings, add them now. Leave aside.

    Burgers:

    Cleaning the Grill: Remove any debris from the grill grate and grease it.


    Prepare the Grill: Turn the heat up high once you’ve cleaned and lubricated the grill (450-500 degrees F.).

    Mix Your Ground Beef: Add salt and pepper to the ground beef, then mix it all together in a bowl (and other seasonings, as desired). Combine in a bowl.

    Divide the Ground Beef: Separate the Ground Beef Form the ground beef into 6 balls of similar size (the finished patties should weigh around 5-6 ounces and be about 3/4 of an inch thick).

    Make Burger Patties: Form hamburger patties with your hands (try not to overwork the meat). Since they may shrink somewhat after cooking, you should aim to make them slightly larger than your bun (if you plan on using one).

    Use Thumb to Make Indentation: Make a little depression with your thumb in the exact center of the patty (this will help ensure the burgers cook evenly without expanding too much in the middle).

    Season Lightly:  Add a little extra salt and pepper to the patties, but don’t overdo it.

    Cook on Direct Heat 6-7 Minutes Total: Direct-Heat Cooking Time Required: Approximately 6-7 Minutes Total: Cook patties over an open flame for three to four minutes. Cook the other side over direct heat until a meat thermometer registers 135°F to 145°F (approx. another 3-4 mins). The inside will end up being medium-rare as a consequence.

    Don’t Press Down: 3 minutes on the first side and 5 minutes on the second will get you Medium. To get medium-well doneness, grill the meat for three minutes on each side. A well-done steak needs four minutes of first-side cooking time and six minutes of second-side cooking time. Do not push down on the burgers with the spatula while they cook. There will be a loss of precious burger fluids if we do this.

    If Making CheeseburgersThe best way to make cheeseburgers is to cook them over indirect heat and top each burger with a piece of cheese. Close the grill and let the cheese melt for 1-2 minutes

    Let Rest: Take off the grill and rest for a minimum of 5 minutes. It will help keep the juices in your burgers.

    Compile Burgers: Make your burger by layering lettuce on the bottom bun, then the burger, cheese, avocado slices, and finally the Mexican Street Corn Salad in a tall mound.
