Burgers and burger sauce

These are the best!

Recipes are from Cooks Illustrated

Well-Done Grilled Hamburgers
makes 6 patties
1/2 cup chopped or torn white bread (remove crusts)
2 tablespoons whole milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons steak sauce (I use Aldi’s brand)
1 1/2 pounds 80% lean ground chuck
(before you start, turn your grill on so that it has 15 minutes to heat)
1. Place bread pieces in a bowl, and pour the milk over the bread. Using a fork, mash the bread and milk together to make a smooth paste. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and steak sauce, and mix until smooth.
2. Add ground beef to the bread/milk mixture, and gently combine, using a fork.
3. Shape the beef into patties.
4. Using tongs, dip a wad of paper towels into a small amount of vegetable oil, and run them over the grill grate.
5. Place burgers on grill. Cook for 2-4 minutes on the first side, flip, and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until burgers reach desired doneness.

makes about 1/4 cup

2 TBS mayonnaise
1 TBS ketchup
1/2 tsp sweet pickle relish
1/3 tsp white vinegar
