Delicious grass-fed burgers made with crumbled blue cheese and coated in cracked black pepper.



  • 1 pound PRE 92% Lean Ground Beef, made into 2 8 oz patties (or 3 5oz)
  • 2 brioche buns, buttered and toasted
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 inch thick cut red onion slice, grilled
  • leaf or romaine lettuce
  • 23 tablespoons cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of salt
  • melted butter, for toasting buns


  1. Combine ground beef, blue cheese, salt, and garlic powder in a bowl. Thoroughly mix all ingredients together using your hands and form into 2 8 ounce burger patties (roughly 3/4 -1 inch thick). Lightly coat the edges of the burger with about 1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper (or to taste). More pepper will be slightly spicier.
  2. On medium-high heat, grill for 6-7 minutes per side, flipping once, until fully cooked through (for medium).
  3. Grill the entire slice of red onion for 2-3 minutes per side, separate slices when serving. Lightly toast the buttered buns flat side down. Top each burger with a slice of cheddar cheese for the last 30 seconds of grilling if desired.
  4. Assemble burgers with leaf lettuce, beef patty, grilled red onion, and chipolte mayonnaise.
