Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 275°. Arrange the buns, cut-sides down, directly on the oven rack and bake until warm, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium; coat with cooking spray. Transfer the meat to a large bowl. Using your hands, divide the meat into 4 equal portions and form each portion into a ball. Season the meat generously all over with the kosher salt and pepper, then drizzle with the Worcestershire sauce.

  • Increase the heat to high, add one portion of meat to the pan, and press down firmly with a spatula to flatten. Repeat with the remaining portions. Cook until the patties are well-browned and crusty around the edges, about 2 minutes. Flip the patties and press; continue cooking about 1 minute more for medium-rare and 2 minutes more for medium-well.

  • To build the burgers, top each bun bottom with mustard, onion, pickles, lettuce, a burger patty, and 2 generous tablespoons of pub cheese. Add the bun tops.
