- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lb ground sirloin
- 4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices beefsteak tomato

- Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
- Add patties to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
- Remove patties from pan. Add tomato slices to pan; cook 1 minute on each side.
- Spread about 3/4 teaspoon mustard over bottom half of each roll; top each with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 patty, 1 tomato slice, and top half of roll.
Note: you can add a little low-sodium beef broth to the meat for juicier burgers
