Ingredients
  

  • Package of King's Hawaiian rolls sliced
  • 1/2 pound of ground chuck shaped into 2 ounce patties
  • salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste
  • 3 slices of Cheddar or American cheese
  • pickles

Instructions
 

  • Start by forming your patties into 2 ounce portions, a bit larger than a golf ball. Be gentle with these as you do not want to overwork the meat. Season both sides with salt. To one side, make a thumbprint in the middle. Continue with the remaining ground chuck. This should make about 6 sliders.
  • Heat a large, cast iron skillet, or non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Once heated, about 1 minute or so, add as many burgers as you can, being careful not to overcrowd the skillet.
  • Sear the patties on one side and do not touch them for a few minutes, just let them get nice and caramelized.
  • Once caramelized, flip each burger, and season with a bit of cracked black pepper. Cook for another minute, then add about 1/2 of a slice of cheddar or American cheese to the top of each patty.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of water to the skillet, and cover. This process gets some awesome steam going and quickly melts the cheese.
  • Add each patty to a sliced, King's Hawaiian roll, and top with a pickle, or serve pickles on the side.
  • You can add condiments if you want, but to me, the simplicity says it all when it comes to beef and cheese.
