In a large bowl, thoroughly combine ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, and salt.

Cover bowl and refrigerate ground beef for 4 hours until well-chilled.

Place ground beef mixture by the tablespoon in between pieces of plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin to flatten into rounds less than 1/8-inch thick.
