  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • Six 1/2-inch-thick slices white onion
  • Canola oil
  • 3 ounces blue cheese, cut into 6 slices or crumbled


  1. 1

    Combine the beef and salt and pepper in a bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill.

  2. 2

    Prepare a charcoal or gas grill: Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. Light the coals or heating elements, and let them burn or heat until hot.

  3. 3

    Brush the onion slices with oil and season each with salt and pepper. Grill on the outer edge of the grill for 5 or 6 minutes until the onions begin to soften. Turn and grill for 8 to 9 minutes on the other side, until tender and lightly browned. Lift from the grill, set aside, and keep warm.

  4. 4

    Grill the burgers 3 to 4 minutes on first side for medium-rare. Flip burgers and place a slice of cheese or crumble about 1/2 ounce cheese on top of each. Grill the burgers, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes longer, until the cheese melts and the burgers are medium-rare. Top with the onions and serve.
