onion, finely chopped
ground black pepper
I've been making this recipe for years and it's always been a hit. The only changes that I made was to omit the salt and sometimes use thyme and/or steak spice. I also add 1 egg so that the patties stay glued together while on the grill. Thanks for sharing.
Waste of time. Drink the beer. The burgers don't need it.
Great hamburger! I love grilling with beer. I used about 1 & 1/4 lbs. of ground beef and about 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion along with the garlic. I kept the other measurements the same (1 Tbsp. of Worcestershire & 1/4 c. beer). There's never a shortage of beer in this house so we used Michelob Ultra. I think any type of full bodied beer will work fine in this recipe. Instead of a tsp. of salt and 1/4 tsp. of pepper I used 1 & 1/4 tsp. of McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning. After mixing the ground beef, we let it set for a half hour in the fridge before making the patties to let the flavors come together. These burgers came out very moist and juicy -perfect on a toasted sesame seed roll with melted cheese, lettuce and tomato.
I will definitely try this recipe again. The burgers were quite tasty. However, the burgers tended to break apart. Next time I will try with a little less beer.
I think it was too much beer, the burger was too tender. I made this three ways I took the 1/4 of beer and put it in a pot and cooked it down to 1 Oz. this still gave the full flavor of the beer, but still made the beef patty tender. I also used 1 oz of dark German beer and a good Belgium beer. The left over beer I drank, I hate waste.
Yum! These burgers were super. I used 93/7 ground turkey instead of beef, the meat mixture did seem very thin and I was worried that these wouldn't hold together well on the grill so I added about 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. Topped with extra sharp white cheddar and served on a hawaiian roll. Thanks for the recipe, we will be making these often!
Pretty darn good little burgers! My only change was to use steak seasoning in place of the salt & pepper. I did these indoors on the grill pan. Looking forward to trying these on the outdoor grill this Summer. Thanks for sharing!
These were really tasty. I overcooked a bit but they still came out savory. I added a few dashes of cayenne and paprika. Everyone loved them.
