  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook and stir onion until nearly translucent, about 4 minutes; remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  2. Mix the beef chuck, lamb, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Divide the mixture into fifths and form each portion into a large burger. Press an indentation in the center of each burger with your thumb to keep burgers flat while cooking. Chill the patties thoroughly, 4 to 8 hours. Allow burgers to warm to room temperature before cooking.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Cook burgers on the hot grill until they show grill marks and the meat is no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Do not press burgers with a spatula as they cook, and flip only once. Let stand 1 minute before serving.

This is my go-to recipe (with some personal tweaks) for burgers every year for my 4th of July BBQ. Great flavor!

Very Tasty and a nice change. A little cucumber sauce and your there!
