Flat Top starter kit

Cutting board

These competition-quality cutting boards are made of the finest quality Hard Rock Maple or Walnut Wood and feature a modern, beveled profile for striking looks that also make lifting the board easier.


  1. To make compound butter stir together all ingredients until well combined. Spoon the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap into a 6 inch long log. Fold the plastic wrap over the mixture to enclose it, and roll to form a 2 1/2 inch diameter log. Chill until firm.
  2. Next up is the garlic aioli. Blend the mayo, lime juice, paprika, cayenne, cumin, and garlic in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Form the ground beef into 4 patties, creating a well for the butter. Stuff a slice of the compound butter inside each burger & enclose the patties. Season well with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat Steelmade Flat Top to medium-high heat. Add 4 slices of compound butter & heat until frothy.
  5. Place burgers on flat top and allow the beef to brown and butter to melt. Smash burgers & flip. 
  6. Add one more slice of butter to each burger and allow to melt. (optional)
  7. Add cheddar cheese to burgers and melt.
  8. Toast potato buns until golden, remove from heat, and spread aioli on top bun.
  9. Once burgers are cooked, remove from heat, and construct with whatever toppings you prefer!
  10. Enjoy!
