- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 large onion, sliced thin
- 1 cup beer
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 lbs ground chuck
- 2 tablespoons beer
- 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices cheese (your choice)
1 Onions: melt butter in saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5-6 minutes. Add 3/4 cup beer, sugar, and salt. Cook until all the beer has been absorbed by the onions and they begin to brown slightly, about 18 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup beer and bring to a simmer. Keep onions warm.
2 Burgers: In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the ground chuck, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper. Gently form into 4 patties, handling as little as possible so as not to make the burgers tough.
3 Grill burgers to your desired degree of doneness.
4 Toast buns on the grill.
5 Serve burgers on the toasted buns topped with the cheese, beer braised onions and ketchup.
