How to Make Jucy Lucy
- In a large bowl put ground beef and add Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and garlic salt and mix everything well together.
- After everything is well incorporated, form 8 thin patties from the beef with its size slightly larger than a slice of cheese.
- Take each slice of American cheese at a time and cut them into 4 equal pieces. Stack these pieces of one slice on top of each other and so the same with the remaining slices.
- Now take one patty and place one stack of cheese on top of it and cover it with another beef patty.
- Tightly pinch the edges to seal the cheese in between the 2 ground beef patties. Repeat the same with the remaining patties and cheese.
- Preheat a heavy bottom skillet or a grilled pan over medium heat and drizzle some vegetable oil over it. Place burgers on them until their outer layer is crisp and brown.
- On the same pan place the patties and allow them to cook until they are brown from the outside and no longer pink on the inside.
- Place the cooked patties on the burgers and layer with pickles, onion, and sautéed mushrooms (everything optional).
- Serve with a sauce of your own choice.
This burger is considered to be a South Minneapolis creation with two restaurants at a few kilometers distance claiming to be the real originators of the burger. The two restaurants are 5-8 Club, who spells the burger as Juicy Lucy, and Matt’s Bar, who spell it as Jucy Lucy.
