Hubert Keller, chef-owner of San Francisco– and Las Vegas–based restaurant Fleur de Lys and a television mainstay (Secrets of a Chef, Top Chef, Top Chef Masters), is obsessed with hamburgers, as any self-respecting Frenchman should be. Here he generously shares some of his secrets. (More can be found in his book Burger Bar: Build Your Own Ultimate Burgers.)

Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Sear-Roasted Lamb Loin Chops
Lamb loin chops may seem fancy, but they're super easy to cook in a single pan. Just sear, roast, and rest for juicy perfection.
Homemade mayonnaise is surprisingly easy to make, and since it tastes so much better than store-bought, it may sway even avowed mayo-haters. Plus, you can turn it into all sorts of other sauces and dips.
A Celebration of Food and Drink in Game of Thrones
As unconventional as it may sound, this unlikely flavor combination is one for the books. Tangy-sweet bread and butter pickle juice against a salty peanut butter topping makes for a an incredibly rich, balanced ice cream-eating experience.
