- 1 Pound ground sirloin
- 1 Pound ground chuck
- 1 Teaspoon table salt
- ½ Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ Cup mixed chopped fresh herbs (such as basil, mint, and oregano)
- 6 hamburger buns, toasted
- Toppings: pimiento cheese, cooked bacon slices, lettuce, and tomato slices
Light a charcoal grill or preheat gas grill to 350 to 400 degrees F (medium-high). Combine the sirloin, chuck, salt, and pepper gently; stir in the herbs. Shape the mixture into six 5-inch patties; let stand 10 minutes.
Grill the patties, covered with grill lid, until the beef is no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve the burgers on toasted buns. Top each burger with pimiento cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
