Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Grill/BBQ
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ pack Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • ¾ tablespoon Garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl; I use my hands in order to get everything mixed really well.
  2. Divide up mixture into four equal tennis ball sized balls.
  3. Flatten balls into hamburger patty shape.
  4. Cook on the grill until meat is no longer pink in the middle

In order to grill these burgers to perfection, we use our amazing Mangrates! Mangrates grill gates are the perfect BBQ accessory. Mangrates design focuses on grease gutters and smoke rails that will cook your food to perfection by reducing flareups and distributing heat evenly. Constructed from 100% American cast iron, these gates help you cook like a pro. Each grate measures 4″ by 15″ and when placed side-by-side fits any grill surface. This efficient “must have” grill tool will enhance your BBQ experience.


Mangrates are the perfect tool to use when cooking poultry, meat, and veggies. I found these grill gates super easy to use. I placed the Mangrates on my grill with the smoke rails pointed up. Because they are cast iron, they do require seasoning. Before using, we sprayed the gates with cooking spray. I turned the grill on high and closed the lid for a few minutes and waited for the grill gates to heat up. After they were ready to cook, I placed our burgers on the grill and turned the grill back down to a medium heat setting. The results-amazing! The burgers were cooked evenly and tasted professional. Cooking the meat with natural oils trapped in the grease gutters provided our burgers with a fantastic flavor.

The clean-up was super easy! After our Mangrates had cooled, we brushed them clean. Our grilling experience has been taken to a whole new level thanks to Mangrates. Come see some of our other grilled hamburger recipes.
