|8 ounces extra lean ground beef||good grinding of pepper|
|1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce||vegetable oil for brushing|
|1 tablespoon caramelized onions from a jar||1/4 cup vegetable oil|
|1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce||9 ounces new potatoes|
|1 1/2 teaspoons buttermilk or plain yogurt|
Mix the ground beef with the onions, buttermilk, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with pepper, then divide in two and form into two patties, either using a press or by hand.
Heat a ridged griddle and lightly brush the burgers with oil. Cook the burgers for 2 minutes on the first side, and then flip them and cook them for another minute. Remove and let stand for a minute or two; this will give you medium-rare burgers.
To make the fries, place the potatoes in a freezer bag and hit them with a rolling pin until they are broken into pieces.
Heat a frying pan with the oil until hot, then add the potatoes and cook for 5–6 minutes a side with the pan partially covered. Remove the potatoes to a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve the burgers with the fast fries and sandwich in a toasted bun, if you wish, and add lettuce, melted blue cheese, and bacon or a fried, poached, or squished soft-boiled egg, as you like.
