Have you ever heard of a butter burger? I’ve never been to Milwaukee, but I have heard about their famous butter burgers and it’s definitely on my list for places to go now. My bucket list most includes top cities and the foods they are known for. I know how to travel. 🙂
If you have a Culver’s near you, you can experience their buttery burgers, but today we’re going to do a low-carb take on a butter burger. If you’ve heard of the keto diet, this recipe would be a great lunch or dinner that fits the keto eating plan!
Traditionally, a butter burger is a cooked burger patty with a pad of butter placed on the the top while it is warm. Put the bun on top of the butter and the butter melts into the bun and down around the burger. Drooling yet?
You already know we like to brush our steaks with garlic butter, so why not stuff a burger with butter? Instead of the butter being placed between the burger patty and the bun, to make this burger you wrap the beef around a tablespoon of butter. Before grilling. Which means that amazing butter gets cooked inside with all of the beef juices.
For the juiciest burgers with the most flavor, use ground chuck, 80% lean. If you go too lean, the burgers will be tough and not as flavorful.
If you have a way to grind meat at home, use freshly ground beef for your grilled burgers. We’ve done this a handful of times and it is THE BEST flavor.
The most important thing to remember when making any burger is to not overwork the meat. The more you mix and stir the meat, the tougher the hamburger will be.
The internal temperature of a burger should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit for medium rare, 150 degrees F for medium well, and 160 degrees F for well done. A digital thermometer is a great tool for summer grilling.
This butter burger recipe is good enough to eat without any other sauces, but you can always top it with fresh tomato and onion.
