There's nothing like a juicy, perfectly cooked burger. It's an American staple! But perfecting this classic dish can be quite the daunting task. Thankfully, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay shared his go-to recipe for creating the perfect burger and — good news — it's actually way easier than you'd expect.

For starters, it's all about the ratio of meat that you use (yes, you need to make the patty from scratch!). Ramsay suggests a 70/20/10 formula made up of chuck steak, short rib, and freshly ground fat. And since you want the meat to really shine, his choice of seasonings are minimal with just garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Then, after lightly oiling a skillet, you quickly cook each side before placing it in the oven. And you know he makes a perfectly charred bun to go with it. Watch the video above to see his easy-to-follow steps for creating the perfect burger, and then feel free to invite all of your friends over for the ultimate taste test.
