When is something as delicious as sirloin steak not a sirloin steak? When it’s a sumptuous Sirloin Steak Burger of course! Steak Burgers are packed with more flavour than just what’s on top! With fresh ground Round, Chuck or Sirloin from your local grocer, it’s easy to make these signature burgers at home. We take the cheese underground for easier grill management and burgers so delicious from the inside OUT.



1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup (125 mL) shredded aged Cheddar cheese
¼ cup (50 mL) diced bacon (uncooked)
¼ cup (50 mL) EACH bread crumbs and minced onion
2 tbsp (30 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp (2 mL) minced fresh rosemary


Combine beef, egg, garlic, cheese, bacon, bread crumbs, onion, Worcestershire sauce and rosemary in bowl.

Divide meat into 6 portions. Form into ¾-inch (2 cm) thick patties. Make thumb-print depression in centre of each patty (to prevent rounding while they grill). Make Ahead: Refrigerate, covered, for 1 hour or up to 1 day.

Grill over medium heat on preheated, oiled grill for 5 to 7 minutes per side, testing doneness with a digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty to ensure patties are cooked to 160°F (71°C). Top with Melted Mushrooms and Onions (if desired).
