2 tsp. sweet paprika
2 tsp. dried thyme
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
1 lb. ground beef
4 tsp. Ranch Rub
1 Tbsp. butter
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
4 hamburger buns, split
Romaine lettuce, tomato slices
Preheat grill to medium heat.
In a small bowl, add the paprika, thyme, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and ground peppers and mix. Store in airtight container. Shake before using.
Lightly shape ground beef into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Press 1 teaspoon Ranch Rub onto each patty.
On the grid, place patties uncovered for 13 to 15 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness. You do not want pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning occasionally. In a large skillet, heat butter and add the onion and brown sugar. Stir and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until onion is caramelized. Line bun bottom with lettuce and tomato. Top with burger.
Evenly divide onion mixture over burgers. Makes 4 Servings.
