Butter Burgers with Sautéd Garlic Spinach



  • 1-1/4 lb. 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons milk (I used non-fat)
  • 2 teaspoons Santa Maria seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons butter (1 diced in cubes to add to meat, 2 for cooking the burgers in)
  • 1/2 onion to grill and top burgers with


1) Place meat in a bowl and add milk, kosher salt, pepper and Santa Maria seasoning. Add cubed butter and mix lightly with a fork.

2) Grill for 2-3 minutes per side on medium-high. Reduce heat to low and move burgers away from the burners (indirect heat) and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes for medium-rare to medium or 4-5 minutes for medium-well.

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • olive oil, a drizzle


1) Put all into a skillet and sauté until wilted.
