Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Combine ground venison and ground beef in a bowl. Divide into 4 balls, and flatten into patties.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place the burgers in the heated skillet and sprinkle each burger with salt, black pepper, a dash of beer, and a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Flip the burgers once a brown crust has formed on the bottom, about 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the cooked side of the burgers with the salt, pepper, beer, and Worcestershire. Cook burgers another 5 to 10 minutes for well done. Top each patty with bacon and serve on hamburger buns.

If you leave a little bacon grease in the skillet when you cook the burgers it makes them even better Read More

Turned out couldn't tell there was deer in them. We didn't have any Guiness so we used Yuengling. Worked out well I think! Read More

I made these burgers tonight and my husband and I both loved them. I didn't have much ground beef so I used mostly venison. I added some Spike seasoning to the meat mixture as well as some Worcestershire sauce and beer. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I'll definitely make these again. Read More

I didn't use Worcestershire Sauce. I added: Hotshot's red & black pepper 1 capful of hickory liquid smoke (I don't typically measure my spices I add until it smells right) I also added chopped onions to the meat mixture. I used Yuengling instead of a stout which worked fine. Swish cheese for the finish and everyone loved them. Read More
