Beer Burgers With Beer Braised Onions

Beer Braised Onions
  • 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.

Serves 4
