  • 1/2 cup Cowboy Butter
  • 2 lbs 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 rolls - I like onion rolls for this burger
  • salt and pepper


  • Start with cold hard Cowboy Butter. Cut four thin round slices, about 1 generous teaspoon each.
  • Using the burger press, add about 1/8th of the ground beef to the bottom and create a lip around the edge.
  • Next, add one slice of the Cowboy Butter to the center of the beef.
  • Add additional ground beef and use the top of the press to form the patty.
  • Remove and repeat to form all four 1/2lb patties.
  • Then, season the patties with freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt.
  • Allow the burgers to rest 10 minutes before cooking.
  • While the burgers rest, add the onions with 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of Cowboy Butter in a large skillet.
  • Cover the onions and cook over medium heat until they are tender. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet you cooked the onions, melt 2 tablespoons of Cowboy Butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add the patties to the skillet and cook until desired doneness, topping with cheese just before the burgers are done.
  • Place the burger patties onto the rolls and top with tender onions.
  • Serve immediately.
