Beef Burger Patties

This grilling season, try making your own burger blend instead of buying ground meat. Here, our combination of chuck, brisket and short ribs provides the perfect leanness-to-fat ratio for a juicy burger with the ideal meaty flavor and texture.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 20 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves Six 6-ounce burgers


    •    1½ pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch pieces and chilled
    •    ½ pound beef brisket, cut into 1-inch pieces and chilled
    •    6 ounces boneless beef short ribs, cut into 1-inch pieces and chilled
    •    Vegetable oil, for greasing
    •    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    •    Buns and toppings, for serving


  1. Using a meat grinder set up according to the manufacturer's directions and with a medium die, grind the meats into a medium bowl. Using your hands, mix the meat until incorporated, then form into six 6-ounce patties. Season both sides liberally with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill. Using tongs and paper towels, lightly grease the grill. Cook the burgers, flipping once, until charred and medium rare, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter, assemble as desired with buns and toppings, and serve.
