How To Make Stuffed Steak Burgers with Roquefort Cheese and Russian Dressing

Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 50 mins


Russian Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup homemade or store-bought mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 2 tbsp store-bought tomato-based barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill or sweet pickles
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh chives


  • 3 lbs ground beefsteak
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 oz Roquefort cheese, crumbled
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 onion slices
  • 6 good-quality fresh-baked Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split
  • 6 slices sun-ripened tomato


  1. First, make the Russian dressing. In a mixing bowl, stir together all the ingredients which should measure about 1-1/4 cups. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. This can last for about a week.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill, indoor grill, grill pan, or broiler.

  3. Start with shaping the burgers. In a mixing bowl, use your hands to thoroughly mix the ground beef, shallots, salt, and pepper. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions.

  4. With your hands, loosely shape a portion of the beef into a ball. Push your thumb down into the center of the ball and insert one-sixth of the crumbled Roquefort cheese. Gently squeeze the hole shut and then press the ball between your palms to form a patty about 1-inch thick.

  5. Repeat with the remaining meat and cheese. Lightly brush the burgers on both sides with olive oil and season lightly on both sides with salt and pepper.

  6. Grill or broil the burgers until they are done to your liking, making sure to turn both sides so they can cook well.

  7. After the burgers have started to cook, lightly brush the onion slices with oil and season them with salt and pepper. Add them to the grill or broiler until they turn golden brown. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  8. About 1 minute before the burgers finish cooking, brush the cut sides of the rolls or buns with oil. Then grill or broil them with the cut sides facing the heat until they are lightly toasted.

  9. To serve, spread some Russian dressing on the cut sides of each roll or bun half. With the spatula, transfer the burgers to the bottoms of the rolls or buns and top them with onions and tomatoes. Serve immediately with Russian dressing on the side. Enjoy!
