Blue Cheese Steakburgers
1-1/4 pounds ground chuck
3/4 pound ground sirloin
(for the absolutely BEST flavor, buy beef as steaks, and chop in your food processor)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons butter
6 ounces intense blue cheese
In a large bowl, using a fork, combine the meats, Worcestershire sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper. Mix, but try not to overwork the meats. Lightly form very thin hamburger patties. Press a slice of butter (approx. 1/2 tablespoon) into the center of the patty. Top with another thin hamburger patty and press the edges of the patties to seal tightly. Continue until all patties are made.
Place on a heated grill. Cook the hamburgers 4 minutes on one side, turn and cook an additional 6 minutes, until a thermometer placed in the center of the burger reads 160° F. In the meantime, grill the hamburger rolls, cut side down, for a minute or two until toasted. Place a hamburger patty and a thick slice of blue cheese on each bun, and top with arugula and sliced tomato.
