  • 1 lb. 85/15 ground beef (not leaner)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley (or 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley)
  • Avocado oil spray for grill pan


  • In a large bowl, use clean hands to mix together all the ingredients except the oil.
  • Form the mixture into four patties, each of them 4 ounces in weight, 4 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
  • Preheat a grill or a grill pan on medium-high heat. Lightly spray or brush the grill with oil.
  • With your thumb, make a slight depression in the center of each patty, to help the hamburgers cook evenly and maintain their shape.
  • Cook the hamburgers, dimpled side up, for 5 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side, about 3 more minutes for medium doneness. 
  • If you'd like to make cheeseburgers, you can top each burger patty with a slice of your favorite cheese during the last minute of grilling. Cover the grill or the grill pan so that the cheese can melt. 


Consuming undercooked meat may increase your risk of foodborne illness. The USDA recommends cooking ground meats to 160°F.
