Beer Burger
Posted August 09, 2004 at 12:20:27 PM by Bean

Watched some Food Network cooking show last week all about burgers, so I tried out some of their suggestion.  I was very happy with the results.

Start with a couple pounds of 80/20 chuck, and add in a good amount of black pepper, salt, and a shake or two of grill seasoning.  Shred an onion over the mixture, lettign the onion and onion juice fall on to the meat.  Pour in some heavy whipping cream (maybe 1/8 - 1/4 cup) and combine by hand, being sure not to over-mix.  Patty into 1/2 or so burgers.

Flop em on the grill and cook to slightly less than the doneness level you are looking for - and be sure to get some char on the outside.  In the meantime, slice another onion into solid cross-sections and put a saucepan on high heat.  Remove the pattys from the grill and put them in th ehot saucepan.  Place an onion slice on top of each, pour about 8 ounces of beer into the pan, and cover.  After about 3-4 minutes, most of the beer will be gone.  Uncover, add a slice of cheese ontop of the steamed onion, then add more beer and recover for 1-2 minutes.  Once the cheese is melted, put 'em on a bun and enjoy.  Save me one, too.
