21 Club Hamburger Recipe

Here is a classy version of an American classic, adapted from "The "21" Cookbook" by Michael Lomonoco:

1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 pounds ground top sirloin
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter

Combine the celery and chicken broth in a small saucepan over very low heat and poach the celery for 20 minutes.

Drain the celery and cool.

Combine the celery with the remaining ingredients except the butter, mixing well with your hands. Gently shape into 4 large patties, being careful not to compact the meat any more than necessary.

Heat the butter in a large, heavy skillet over moderate heat until the butter is amber in color. Brown the burgers 6 minutes on each side, then place the skillet in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, a few additional minutes for better done.

NOTE: Due to the possibility of E. coli contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends cooking all meat well done.) Serves 4.
