"I made this recipe recently, the beer is in the burger and onions and really gives them a great flavor, the burgers and onions are served on toasted rye bread instead of buns, this is a good recipe!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

To prepare onions: heat olive oil in large skillet. Add onion slices and saute for 3 minutes. Once onions become slightly opaque, add beer and cook for 30 seconds. Add broth, soy sauce, salt, black pepper, and chili powder. Allow onions to simmer on medium-low for 30-35 minutes until liquid has absorbed and onions are soft. You can make ahead of time and reheat once patties are cooked.

Step 2

Preheat grill for medium high heat.

Step 3

Place ground beef into large bowl. Add minced garlic, 1/3 cup of stout beer, salt, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and black pepper to meat. Combine well, but do not over mix.

Step 4

Form into 6-7 oblong patties, a little bigger that the length and width of the marbled rye slices.

Step 5

Place patties onto grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side.

Step 6

Toward the end of cooking, add 2 Swiss cheese slices to each patty and cook until cheese has melted.

Step 7

Remove from heat and arrange onto toasted rye bread. Top with sauteed onions and remaining bread halves.

This is really delicious! The onions are super good. I was a bit heavy handed with the ancho Chile powder but I love Spice. I'll use a brioche bun next time I make this recipe. The swirl bread toasted up too crisp (not the recipe's fault). I cut the recipe back to two Burgers, one without melted cheese just cheese on the side. This burger will be made again thanks Mepps.
