Calories -95.5   Total Fat - 5.3g,   Carb. - 0.1g,   Protein - 12g

1 lb. extra lean ground beef ( 96/4)

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce ( or more if you like)

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

salt, as you like

fresh ground pepper, as you like

1 TBS. canola oil

1. Combine the beef with ALL of the rest of the ingredients. ( I do add just a TBS of oil to the very lean beef, I have no proof, but call me crazy, I think it helps the meat stay moist, and adding this little bit does not change the point value)   Mix gently.  With a scale, weigh out  2 oz. of meat.  Gently shape into patty, leaving a slight indentation in the middle ( so when the beef cooks and puffs up the burger stays nicely shaped.).  Repeat until all the meat is used.  You should get 8 patties. 

2.  Heat a heavy skillet ( I used my cast iron grill pan) over med high heat.  Spray with cooking spray and put patties on and let them get a nice sear before you flip.  Flip and cook on other side until the meat registers an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.  Let burgers sit on plate loosely covered with foil for 5 - 10 minutes before enjoying them.
