Hamburger Recipe


The Hamburger originated from the Mongolian Empire as "Steak Tartare" and was modified into "Hamburg Steak" after being converted to a German meal. It was brought to America by German immigrants and was used to bring German sailors over to eat at a restaurant when they came over to America. ”The Germans simply flavored shredded low-grade beef with regional spices, and both cooked and raw it became a standard meal among the poorer classes.” (qtd. in “Hamburgers”) This recipe is adapted from “Hamburgers - History and Legends of Hamburgers”


· 1 Ground Beef Steak

· 2-3 Bulbs of Onion

· 1 Stick of Butter

· 1 Small Container of Salt

· 1 Small Container of Ground Black Pepper

· 2 Hamburger buns (Sesame Seed)

· 4 Leaves of Lettuce

· 2 Slices of Cheese

· 2 Slices of Tomato

· Ketchup (Optional)

· Mustard (Optional)


1. Pound the slice of round steak enough to break the fiber and fry 2 or 3 minced onions in a frying pan with 1 slice of butter on high until slightly browned

2. Place the fried onions in the patty, fold the corners of the steak over the onions, broil the beef patty for two or three minutes at 375 degrees, take out when it is brown, and season with salt and pepper

3. Place beef patty on a plate once finished broiling and place bun on a separate plate

4. Cut 4 leaves of lettuce, two slices of cheese, and two slices of tomato

5. Place two leaves of lettuce on the bun, slice of cheese over lettuce, beef patty over cheese (apply condiments, if necessary, at this layer), slice of cheese over beef patty, two slices of tomato over cheese, and two leaves of lettuce over tomato

6. Place the bun on top

7. This is best served on a large plate to account for any extra sides you may find necessary for a hamburger
