Love a juicy, flavorful burger hot off the grill? Then you'll love this homemade burger seasoning blend for your next summer cookout! This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods®. The opinions and text are all mine.
There's nothing better than gathering around the grill and dining outdoors on warm summer evenings. These are the moments that create special family memories.
My husband loves to fire-up the grill and cookout, it has become a regular weekend ritual for our family. We love homemade burgers and this homemade burger seasoning blend is the perfect way to jazz up a plain patty!
Burgers can be enjoyed as part of a healthy eating plan. Ground beef that's 90% or more lean ( we usually go for 93%) is full of good nutrition and lower in saturated fat.
Ground sirloin makes a delicious lean beef burger. Some people like to blend ground sirloin and ground chuck together for a juicier burger. Even though it's leaner than ground chuck, sirloin is still very juicy and flavorful as long as it's not overcooked and properly seasoned.
If you want to lower the calorie content, sirloin is the best option. You can find fresh, affordable lean beef options, like this 90% lean ground sirloin, at your local Walmart store.
Don't forget the charcoal! Kingsford has great products for all of your charcoal grilling needs. Applewood charcoal adds a really nice sweet and smokey flavor boost to your meats.
Walmart pretty much has everything you need for a great cookout all under one roof at an affordable price.
Now to spice things up! You can double or triple this recipe and store it in a sealed container. It's great on chicken, pork, and vegetables, too!
How Much Burger Seasoning To Use
After making the patties, I often sprinkle the seasoning on top of the burgers before grilling. You can also work the seasoning into the meat before forming into patties. The amount will depend on how much seasoning you prefer, but about 2 ½ teaspoons per pound should be perfect. Adjust according to your taste preferences. Enjoy!

You don’t mention anything, I don’t believe about how much you put in your raw beef per pound. I’m not sure how much of this I’m supposed to use on 2.5 pounds of meat. Or is this supposed to be sprinkled on individual burgers before or after? You didn’t explain how to use your Seasoning!
Jona, great point! I sprinkle the seasoning on top of the burgers before we grill them. You can also work it into the meat before making patties, but the amount will depend on how much seasoning you prefer. It's really to personal taste preference. I hope that you enjoy it!
A most straightforward recipe.
