Cooking with Beer - Stout Burgers with IPA Glazed Onions & Smoky Pale Ale Cheese Sauce

This is a totally beerific burger!  I combined several yummy beer infused recipes and the end result was intoxicatingly delicious!  Not really intoxicating despite all the beer used in the recipe.  But super tasty, for sure!

The beer makes the burgers incredible moist and juicy.  Have a pile of napkins ready!

I used Saranac Imperial Stout. It is a well rounded stout that adds nice flavor to the meat without overpowering the other ingredients.  

Stout Burgers 
With IPA Glazed Onions & Smoky Pale Ale Cheese Sauce

1 Pound Ground Beef
2 Tbsp Onion, Finely Chopped
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
1/4 Cup Stout

2 Kaiser Rolls
1 Cup Smoky Pale Ale Cheese Sauce (Recipe here)
1 Cup IPA Glazed Onions (Recipe here

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef with all ingredients in list up to and including the stout.  Mix gently but thoroughly.  Try not to work the meat more than necessary as it will make the burgers tough.

Gently form into two patties.

Grill burgers to desired temperature.  

Place burgers on the rolls.  Top with the beer glazed onions and cheese sauce.


Note:  I make these burgers really big.  You could get away with making this same recipe into four smaller burgers, if you want to.  Although, I can't imagine why you would.  ☺
