  1. Spread your three meats and the bacon on a baking sheet or bowl that will fit in your freezer. Place in freezer for about 30-45 minutes, or until pieces are partially frozen. This will help your food processor break down the meat easier.
  2. Working in batches, add the meat to your food processor and set on low until you get your preferred grind, maybe about a minute or two. And voila! You have your very own ground beef for use in burgers, meatloaf, tacos, you name it! So let's get to these burgers.
  3. In a large bowl, combine 1 lb. ground beef and bone marrow. Add miso mixture and Worcestershire sauce, and stir just to incorporate. Divide beef into 4 nicely-sized patties. Generously season each patty with salt and pepper.
  4. Add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add burgers to skillet and cook for about 5-7 minutes per side, for a nice medium. About 1 minute before burgers are done, add slices of cheddar cheese and cook until melted. Remove from heat and let rest for about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Toast your challah buns, if desired, and begin to assemble burgers. Try this: bottom bun, burger topped with cheese, tomato slice, red onion slice, watercress, pickles, ketchup, and top bun.
