Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix the ground beef, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix in the beer until absorbed by the meat mixture. Form into patties.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I've been making this recipe for years and it's always been a hit. The only changes that I made was to omit the salt and sometimes use thyme and/or steak spice. I also add 1 egg so that the patties stay glued together while on the grill. Thanks for sharing.



Great hamburger! I love grilling with beer. I used about 1 & 1/4 lbs. of ground beef and about 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion along with the garlic. I kept the other measurements the same (1 Tbsp. of Worcestershire & 1/4 c. beer). There's never a shortage of beer in this house so we used Michelob Ultra. I think any type of full bodied beer will work fine in this recipe. Instead of a tsp. of salt and 1/4 tsp. of pepper I used 1 & 1/4 tsp. of McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning. After mixing the ground beef, we let it set for a half hour in the fridge before making the patties to let the flavors come together. These burgers came out very moist and juicy -perfect on a toasted sesame seed roll with melted cheese, lettuce and tomato.



I will definitely try this recipe again. The burgers were quite tasty. However, the burgers tended to break apart. Next time I will try with a little less beer.
