Prime Rib Burgers Recipe

Prime Rib Burger
When I came across some prime rib burger patties at the store I knew that I had to give them a try. I’m I glad that I did because the prime rib was delicious and has a very different flavor from your normal burger. These burgers are topped with caramelized onions, a horseradish cream, and smoked provolone cheese. You can cook the burgers either on the stovetop or grill them on an outdoor grill. I recommend using ag good type of bun such as brioche. Enjoy.

Save Recipe
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


  • 4 prime rib burger patties (or 1 to ½ lbs ground prime rib)
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 slices smoked provolone cheese
  • Caramelized Onions-
  • 2 small onions (thinly sliced)
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Small pinch of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Horseradish Cream-
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. In a small bowl combine sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Place into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter and oil in a large sauté pan over low heat. Add in the sliced onions, and the dried thyme and cook slowly for about 20 minutes until the onions are caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Season the burger patties on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add the burger patties and cook, turning frequently until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F), about 5 minutes per side or more, depending on the thickness of the patties. During the last few minutes of cooking, top with a slice of provolone cheese and cook until the cheese has melted.
  4. Serve on buns with horseradish cream and caramelized onions.

I'm loving these! What a great idea!! Why settle for ground hamburger, right? The only thing I'll change is to serve the burgers on my corner bakery's delicious Poppy seed buns. I love the addition of Thyme. Thanks for this lovely recipe.
