100% Omaha Steaks on a Bun

The star of any burger is the beef and with Omaha Steaks gourmet burgers, crafted from 100% real, aged Omaha Steaks, you’ve got the essential ingredient for a showstopping burger. Our extra-juicy, extra-flavorful, beefy six-ounce gourmet burgers with a homemade texture were born to be styled.

Chef Tip: Cook your burger to your desired doneness using our burger cooking guide.

Bun Appetit: Opt for a Hefty Toasted Bun

Thick, juicy burgers deserve serious buns. Choose a hearty butter, brioche, or potato bun as the base for your mouthwatering burger creation. Try our new Brioche Hamburger Buns specially created for Omaha Steaks juicy burgers. To toast, spread the inside of each bun with mayonnaise or butter and lightly toast on a hot grill or skillet, or broil in the oven. You want the bun to be slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside for a satisfying bite.

Gouda Vibes: Add Ooey Gooey Melty Cheese

Melted cheese creates a creamy and savory layer that enhances the richness and juiciness of the burger. The variety of cheese depends on your personal preference, but for the best melt, choose a younger, fresher cheese, like American, cheddar, provolone, Gouda, Swiss, or mozzarella. For the ultimate cheeseburger, check out our burger and cheese pairing guide.

Chef Tip: Add the sliced cheese to your burger during the last 30 seconds to 1 minute of cooking time and allow to melt.

Romaine Calm: Load Up on Classic Toppings

Sweet, sliced tomato, crunchy dill pickles, or crispy romaine lettuce, the choice of classic toppings is yours. Load your burger with your favorite fresh vegetables for an extra flavor punch and satisfying textures.

Secret Sauce

What’s the secret sauce? That’s up to you. Sauces add an extra layer of flavor and should complement your burger and toppings. Depending on the sauce used, it can add tanginess, spiciness, sweetness, or richness to the burger. Try one of our four incredible burger sauces to spice up your burger or stick to the classics: ketchup, mustard, or mayo.
