Servings 4


  • 1 lb Dakota 85/15 Grass Fed Beef
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices Cheese (melting cheese of your choice)


  1. Place ground beef in bowl. Grate onion directly over beef, letting onion juice fall into bowl with beef, (grating until you get about 1/4 cup grated onion).
  2. Add cream to beef. Mix gently but thoroughly. Divide into 4 equal portions and gently form into burger patties.
  3. Heat butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When foam subsides, add patties to pan. Reduce heat to medium.
  4. Cook burger patties 2 1/2 minutes (for medium rare) on first side basting with butter. Carefully flip to other side. Cook additional 2 1/2 minutes, continuing to baste. Add a slice of your favorite cheese and let it melt. Remove from pan. Garnish with lettuce and tomato and serve on bread, such as a baguette.
