Take the ground beef and form them into 2 patties that are about an inch thick.

Put the ground peppercorns on a plate and add the soy sauce and olive oil. We are going to coat the patties with this mixture.

Dip both sides of the patty in the peppercorn mixture. Make sure all sides are evenly coated and all the peppercorns are used. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over high heat.

Once the oil is hot, sear the burger patties, cooking each side for about a minute or two. Remove from the pan, set aside and reduce the heat.

In another frying pan, pour the sauce and stir. Then add the burger patties and spoon some sauce on top. Let it simmer for about 7-9 minutes. If it’s necessary to turn the burgers over to keep from burning, do so.
