What happens when you put your favorite beer in your hamburger? It becomes your new favorite burger! Chicken Legs favorite beer is Guinness. Since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, I have been brainstorming recipe ideas. I decided to combine Chicken Legs favorite beer with one of his favorite foods (burgers). The result was one AMAZING burger! I don't really like beer, and I absolutely loved these burgers!!
This recipe makes 6 large burgers. You can certainly make smaller burgers, but we like nice big burgers. The burgers can be made ahead of time and frozen for later. We actually have some in our freezer now. I love pulling out a few burgers for a quick lunch or dinner.
We grilled the burgers, but you can cook them in a skillet too. Either way will make a super tasty burger!
- 2 lb ground beef
- 1/2 cup Guinness beer
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
Mix together beef, beer, Worcestershire, mustard, onion flakes, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Divide into 6 equal patties (I use a kitchen scale for this).
Grill to desired doneness. Top with American cheese, cook for a minute, until cheese is melted.
Serve on hamburger buns with favorite toppings.
