  1. Preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, water, garlic, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, ketchup, mustard and pepper using your hands. Pat into 4 large thick patties. Place them on a broiler pan.
  3. Broil the burgers for about 15 minutes per side, or until well done. Place buns on the broiler pan and toast briefly. Place whole green onions on the broiler pan at the same time, and just toast until limp.
  4. Place burger patties onto the bottom halves of the buns and top each one with a slice of cheese and some avocado slices. Top with the top buns. Serve with green onions.

I thought the measurements on this were a little off. I don't think a pinch of chili powder and 1/4 tsp. of ketchup and mustard do much to 2 lbs. of ground beef. I liked the combination of ingredients so I increased the chili powder to 1/2 tsp., the ketchup and mustard to 1 tsp. each, and the pepper to 1/4 tsp. I omitted the hot pepper sauce. Instead of broiling, I cooked the burgers in my electric fry pan and didn't bother with the green onions. Instead I just served these with the usual toppings, sliced onion, lettuce, tomato, sliced avocado, etc. They were good.


I cut the recipe in half for 1 pound of lean ground beef (90/10). I didn't bother with the water, I just didn't see the point. I added a little extra dijon mustard, ketchup, and Frank's red hot. These came out very moist and delicious. I served these on toasted rolls with thin sliced red onion and melted american cheese.


These burgers were awesome! Cooked on my George Forman grill. Highly recommend! Thanks for sharing :)
