Step 1

Mix all the ingredients together except the beer.

Step 2

Shape mixture into 6 patties, each about 1-inch thick. Place the patties in an ungreased baking dish, 10 X 6 X 1 3/4-inches. Pour the beer over the patties, then cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours. (Meat may turn gray, but it is ok).

Step 3

Remove patties from the marinade. Broil or grill the patties 4 inches from the heat, turning once, to the desired doneness, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 4

Serve on buns or rolls with your favorite toppings. (Good on rye bread)

I made a mistake and think that is why they were dry. I cut the recipe in half but added extra beer to marinade the patties. I think this added moisture may have had the effect of drying the burgers as they cooked. I loved the caraway flavour.I served them on Winnipeg Rye Bre3ad with marble cheese, tomato & sweet Onion toppings

I followed the recipe exactly, cutting it in 1/3 to make 2 burgers. I used an Oatmeal Stout beer (enjoying the rest while it marinated). Then I grilled the meat on the outdoor BBQ after 3 hours of marinating. The burgers tasted great and were very moist. I liked the onion flavor too...and I think that helped with the moistness. I was surprised that I didn't really taste the caraway seed or beer, so maybe increasing the caraway or using a plainer bun would make it pop more (I used a pretzel bun with a strong flavor). I'll try it again as we head into grilling season with a plain bun as this really does make a good burger.
