Chopped Steak


You won't need ketchup or mustard! This savory blend of spices will be enough for any person. This may even make you forget you're eating ground beef. Serve with a light gravy, garlic mashed potato and veg of your choice. I like Italian green beans.

4 patties


  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon ground paprika

  • ½ teaspoon dill weed

  • ½ large white onion, finely chopped

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ¾ cup finely crushed unsalted saltine crackers


  1. Place ground beef into a large bowl and break into smaller pieces. Cover with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, mustard, paprika, and dill weed; knead thoroughly. Knead in onion, egg, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix in crackers until thoroughly incorporated.

  2. Shape beef mixture into 5-ounce, 1/2-inch thick patties.

  3. Preheat a grill pan over medium heat. Grill patties until an instant-read thermometer into the center reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 5 to 7 minutes per side.


Cook's Note:

I have used a George Foreman(R) grill on this when I've been jammed up. Be careful! The patties cook faster due to being grilled on both sides - let them go for about 5 to 6 minutes then check the internal temperature.
