Finally! We're enjoying weather that allows time spent on the deck and grilling. Nothing heralds the beginning of Grilling Season like a grilled burger. I'm always searching for different flavor combinations to use for hamburgers and today was no exception. Garlic is always an excellent choice in my opinion so I used Garlic Olive Oil. To add a little "extra something" to the mix, I chose Espresso Balsamic Vinegar which pairs wonderfully with the garlic olive oil.
1 1/2 lbs. ground chuck
1 T. Garlic Olive Oil
1 t. Espresso Balsamic Vinegar
1 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients. Shape into 5 - 6 burgers.
Preheat gas grill or prepare charcoal grill.
Grill burgers 5 - 6 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. for medium and 170 degrees F. for well done.
Place on lightly grilled bun and add your favorite condiments!
