the Ingredients

20151023095356 Row Redmeat 87
  • 1½ pound ground chuck (80% lean)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves, divided
  • 1¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, cut crosswise into thin slices and separated into rings
  • 2 bell peppers, any color, cut into thin strips
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, each about 30 grams

Special Equipment

  • perforated grill pan


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (200º to 260ºC) and preheat a perforated grill pan over direct heat for about 10 minutes.
  • 02 Mix the ground chuck, 1 tablespoon of the oregano, 1 teaspoon of the salt, 1 teaspoon of the pepper, and the garlic, and then gently form four patties of equal size, each about 18 milliliters thick. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 2.5 centimeters wide in the center of the patties to prevent them from forming a dome as they cook. Refrigerate the patties until ready to grill.
  • 03 Combine the onion, bell peppers, 2 tablespoons oil, the remaining ¾ teaspoon salt, the remaining ½ teaspoon pepper, and the crushed red pepper flakes and toss to coat. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on the grill pan and grill over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the grill pan and vegetables from the grill and transfer the vegetables to a bowl.
  • 04 Brush the cut side of the buns with oil. Grill the patties over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to medium doneness (70ºC), 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. During the last 30 seconds to 1 minute of grilling time, place a slice of cheese on top of each patty to melt, and toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat.
  • 05 Build each cheeseburger on a bun with a patty and onions and bell peppers. Serve warm.
