- 1/2 cup ranch dressing
- lettuce, sliced plum tomato, and cut-up vegetables (such as carrots and celery), for serving
- Form the beef into eight 3-inch patties.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the patties with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of each patty registers 130ºF, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
