There’s no question that this is a burger lover’s burger. But what really makes it special is the beef, provided by master purveyor Pat LaFrieda. Made with a custom short rib blend from American raised and grazed Black Angus cattle, it’s chopped, rather than ground, to give it a coarse, meaty texture. All it needs to shine is some simple but satisfying toppings. Here, that’s balsamic caramelized onions and a garlicky aioli.

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss cauliflower with panko, a large drizzle of oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake until browned and crisp, about 25 minutes. TIP: Don’t worry if a few crumbs fall off.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes, tossing occasionally. Stir in 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar (we sent more) and reduce heat to low. Cook until very soft, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.

Shape Pat LaFrieda Hamburger Blend into two patties with your hands (you'll want them to be slightly wider than the buns). Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Carefully wipe out pan you cooked onions in with a paper towel, then heat a drizzle of oil in it over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook to desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. TIP: Got a grill? Fire it up! The burgers will taste great cooked on the grates. Place them over direct heat and grill to your desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. You can even toast the buns on there, too.
