Wagyu Beef Burger Ingredients

To make these mouthwatering burgers, you’ll need:

  • Wagyu ground beef
  • Cooked bacon slices (try our air fryer bacon recipe)
  • Cheese slices (use your preferred cheese)
  • Burger buns (choose your favorite rolls!)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: tomato slices, lettuce, condiments

How to Grill Burgers

Follow these steps to achieve burger perfection:

  1. Preheat your grill to its highest temperature. Take each one-pound roll of wagyu ground beef and divide it into thirds, shaping them into flat patties with a diameter of about 5 inches. Press the middle of each patty slightly to prevent them from plumping up.
  2. Just before placing the patties on the grill, generously season them with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Arrange the patties evenly on the grill and close the lid. Let them cook for approximately 5 minutes, then flip them over. As soon as you flip them, add your cheese slices. Continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes.
  4. Remove the patties from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes.
  5. Place each patty on a bun, and top with 2-3 slices of bacon, as well as your preferred toppings. Now, it’s time to enjoy your scrumptious wagyu burger!

  • Wagyu burgers are difficult to overcook, so as long as you keep an eye out for flare-ups on the grill, you’ll achieve burger perfection.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with other spices for your burgers. Salt is crucial, and it’s hard to oversalt a burger, so don’t shy away from seasoning generously.
