Tomato juice gives these burgers more moisture, and they taste great!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck or ground round
  • 3 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
  • 2 tablespoons tomato juice
  • seasoned salt and pepper
  • sliced tomatoes, optional
  • sliced pickles, optional
  • sliced onion, optional
  • lettuce, optional
  • condiments, as desired


Prepare a grill for high heat.

Combine the beef with bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, grated onion, garlic powder, and tomato juice. Shape the meat into 4 to 5 large patties. Sprinkle both sides of burgers lightly with seasoned salt and pepper.

Put burgers on a lightly oiled grill over the prepared coals and grill for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until done as desired. Serve on split toasted buns with your choice of sliced vegetables and condiments.

Serves 4 to 5.

Perfect flavor & juiciness, Member itropicbird

This is an awesome burger. My teenage son & I have made it a tradition to taste test burgers all over town, plus I've tried several recipes, so we like to think of ourselves as burger connoisseurs. As far as burgers go, once you start adding all sorts of ingredients, then you lose the hearty beef flavor, plus it can get so labor intensive that you might as well have made a three-course meal. This recipe, however, is very simple, and adds just enough that it enhances but doesn't cover up the flavor of the meat. I used a good quality angus beef, and I didn't want to buy a can of tomato juice just to use 2 tablespoons of it, so I just squeezed it out of a fresh tomato. Maybe the reviewer who didn't like the bread crumbs in it didn't use the fine dry crumbs, because it wasn't an issue at all. I'm not going to try any more burger recipes because I know I will always use this one.
