Gently mold the beef into a round hamburger patty. Heat a flat top griddle to medium-high, place the burger down, and sprinkle the top side generously with salt. Allow one side to sear for up to 4 minutes without moving.

Dill Shopping Tip

Look for fresh green leaves free of any wilting. The leaves should be soft and feathery; it is best kept wrapped in a paper towel in a bag when storing in the refrigerator.

Dill Cooking Tip

When using dill in a hot recipe, add it only at the last minute. Otherwise you will lose the flavor and fragrance of the herb.
