1 pound 80% lean ground beef
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon beef base (such as Better than Bouillon®)
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (195 degrees C).
Form beef into 4 patties, approximately 3/4 inches thick and 4 1/2 inches in diameter. Make the patties slightly bigger than the buns to allow for shrinkage.
Whisk together warm melted butter and beef soup base in a small bowl. Brush lightly onto both sides of patties and season with pepper. Set patties into the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches.
Air-fry patties for 7 minutes, flipping halfway through, for medium doneness. For well done, air-fry for an additional 2 minutes.
This recipe was developed using a 2.8-quart basket-style air fryer. Results will vary depending on air fryer size and brand, and thickness of your patties. You may need to adjust cook time to achieve your preferred degree of doneness.
If excessive smoking occurs, add water to the bottom of the air fryer to help prevent dripping grease from burning.
