Hello, food lovers !!! Are you hungry? Want to have a delicious yummy burger? I am here to solve your problem. If you think that the best burger is one cooked outside on the grill then this recipe will prove you wrong. My inspiration for this recipe is my mom. I enjoy indoor grill burgers with my family or friends. Let’s discuss indoor grills burgers-
Cooking Equipment Needed
You have 2 choices when it comes to indoor grills. You can choose an electric countertop grill, such as a George Foreman Grill. They come in two different styles- contact grills or open grills. Another choice is a stovetop grill or grill pan. A square grill pan, around 11 inches, will provide enough surface space to make four burgers at a time. You will also need a mixing bowl, measuring spoons, turning spatula or wide tongs, baking sheet (optional), a thermometer for indoor grill burgers.
What You’ll Need For Burger Grill
Making the best burger always starts with using great ingredients! Personally, I prefer beef burgers; however, I realize many of us live by different dietary standards. Thankfully, the options are limitless: Chicken, Fish, Shrimp, Lamb, Bison, Venison, Pork, Turkey, Black Bean (Vegan), Mushroom (Vegan), etc. are all appropriate alternatives. If you don’t like beef then there have no problem. You can choose any main ingredients according to your choice.
- 1 1/2 pound Beef/Bison/Chicken/Fish (ground, or turkey)
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (ground)
- 4 brioche buns (or tender white hamburger buns, split)
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Optional: 4 slices cheese
Recipe for How to make indoor grill burgers
Feeling scared !! Why ? Just chill dear. It’s a very simple recipe. Let’s start your cooking. Now take the mixing bowl and combine the ground meat, egg, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Divide the mixture into four pieces (If desired, use a kitchen scale). Form each piece into a ball, then press gently with your thumb in the center of each to make a doughnut-shaped patty.
Heat the grill pan to medium-high heat (around 375˚F). Grill the burgers until they are cooked through. It will take about 6 minutes for each side (If you are using bison or lean ground beef, you can cook them a little less so they are rare in the middle). If you want, top the burgers with cheese and melt the cheese by either covering the grill pan briefly with a lid or by transferring the burgers to a sheet pan and placing them under the broiler for a few minutes. Keep warm.
If you want to get delicious grilled flavor from protein like meat, poultry, fish, it’s important to start with the right type of cut. You’ll get the best results from thinner pieces of meat, such as flank steak or chicken breasts that have been pounded to around 3/4 inches, or thin fish fillets like tilapia or trout. The reason is that the thinner the piece, the faster it’ll cook.
The times below should help you estimate how long it might take for your meat to cook.
Indoor Grill Meat Cooking Times:
- Flank Steak: 12 to 14 minutes
- Hamburgers: 14 to 17 minutes
- Precooked Hot Dogs or Sausages: 5 to 7 minutes
- Chicken Breast: 12 to 15 minutes
- Fish Fillets or Shrimp: 5 to 7 minutes
Smaller or thinner vegetable pieces will cook best asparagus, 1/2-inch bias-cut slices of potato, eggplant, green beans, mushrooms (particularly portobellos), tomato or zucchini for instance.
Indoor Grill Vegetable Cooking Times:
- Asparagus spears: 3 to 5 minutes
- Portobello mushrooms: 5 to 7 minutes
- Tomatoes, halved or thick slices: 4 to 5 minutes
- Zucchini, 1/2-inch slices: 5 to 7 minutes
- Onion, 1/2-inch slices: 5 to 7 minutes
- Bell Pepper Strips: 6 to 8 minutes
- Covering the grill will cut these cooking times in roughly half.
Now place the buns cut-side down on the surface of the hot grill, pressing lightly to let buns soak up any juices. Toast the buns until lightly golden.
No one in the family wants to stand out in the snow or heavy rain until the food is done. If you don’t have enough time, you can also cook frozen burger patties in a grill pan. Preheat the grill pan. Now place the frozen burger in the grill pan and close the lid. Wait for 12 to 16 minutes.
At last serve on buns with your choice of condiments, such as ketchup, mustard, pickles, sliced tomatoes, onions or lettuce.
Looking Wow! Taste is so Yummy!

Nine Mistakes You Should Avoid
- Don’t buy cheap or lean beef.
- Don’t over-work your burgers OR add a bunch of other stuff into the mix.
- Don’t forget to put a divot in the middle.
- Don’t let a little heat scare you.
- Please, just don’t smash your burger while it’s cooking.
- Don’t cut into the burger to check for doneness.
- You must let the burger rest.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment for indoor grill burgers recipe work.
- Bonus: Add a pat of butter before cooking.
To avoid contamination you have to wash your hands thoroughly after handling frozen, raw beef patties. Also, never keep grilled burgers on the plate that carried the uncooked patties.
When you are checking the internal temperature of grilled burgers, first remove the party from the grill. Then insert the meat thermometer into the side of the patty, not straight down into it.
When meat is grilled at high temperatures, the cooking process can generate carcinogenic chemicals. Some doctors have said that charcoal used during the grilling process can expose you and your food to cancer-causing chemicals. If you want to use charcoal to cook, it’s recommended that you don’t overcook the meat and keep it out of the smoke as much as possible. Doctors recommend using a gas grill. It is a cleaner way to cook. You can also avoid the possible side dish of a well-known carcinogen.
