Toast your buns on the grill or grill pan. Simply melt butter on the pan. Cut the toasted bun into halves and place the cut sides on the pan. Toast until light golden brown.
Your ground beef mixture shouldn't be too runny. It should have a thick sticky texture. If it's too thin, let it simmer with the lid off until it is as thick as you want it. Otherwise, you can use corn starch to thicken your recipe.
If you're using 70/30 or 80/20 ground beef, it's a good idea to drain the fat by using a spoon to remove the fat drippings. Brown the ground beef, then drain the grease.
