Classical Cheeseburger With Smashed Patties, Onions And Cured Tomatoes

Yields: 2 portions.


  • 4 freshly ground beef chuck patties, 3 oz each.
  • 2 favourite burger buns, preferably potato
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 10 ml sherry vinegar
  • 50 ml mayonnaise
  • 10 ml ketchup
  • 2 slices of mature cheddar
  • 1 beef steak tomato, sliced 1/4’’ thick
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. Preheat your oven to 325F. Heat up your grill or a cast iron pan on high until very hot.
  2. Sprinkle the tomatoes with a pinch of salt and put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Toss onions with salt and sherry vinegar and let it marinade. Put the burger buns in the oven.
  3. Season the patties with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Sear on each side around 2 minutes or until the desired doneness is achieved. When you flip the first side, also place the cheddar on top and let it melt. For assembly, mix the mayo with ketchup and spread equally on buns, dress it with onions, two patties and a slice of tomato.
  4. Serve hot.

Thanks for asking for clarification Ed. It meant 4 quantity of 3 oz ground beef chuck patties. I have edited the recipe to make that clearer. Thanks again!

I’m not sure what the
‘4X3’ of the freshly ground beef chuck patties means.
Thank you, Ed
