Cooking Steps

  1. In a large glass bowl combine ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, shallot, parsley, salt and cayenne pepper. Add egg and 1 teaspoon black pepper; mix well. Add bread crumbs and mix again. Take one-third of meat mixture, roll it into a ball, then pat it down into a patty. Repeat to make two more patties.
  2. In a sauté pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan. When one side is cooked half-way through, flip the burgers so the other side can cook.
  3. Open 3 sourdough buns and spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon mustard on each bun. Sprinkle with a pinch of black pepper. Place a burger on the bottom of each bun. Add desired burger toppings and the tops of the buns.
