A drunken fraternity brother taught me this recipe. It's remarkably good. I usually add more Worcestershire sauce, beer and garlic salt during cooking. To fully cook the onions and jalapenos, the burgers will need to be well done. Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.

  • In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, dry bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, ground black pepper and approximately 1/2 of the dark beer. Mix until firm enough to form patties, using remaining dark beer as necessary.

  • Shape ground beef mixture into 4 thick patties. Create a well in the center of the patties, and fill with onion and jalapeno. Form the ground beef mixture back around the onions and jalapenos, and flatten.

  • Place patties on the prepared grill, and cook 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.

Was very good. I mixed the onions straight into the beef instead of in the middle. Used Amberbock as the beer but would definitely cut it down to 1/4 of a bottle. Cooked it on a Foreman so the soggyness wasn't too much of a factor. Read More

Be careful on the beer i used 1 lb of ground beef and put 1/2 a bottle of sam adams in and it made the soggiest burgers ive ever had... the finished burger was mush (what didnt fall in the grill). If i would have used 1/4 bottle it might have tasted decent but the beer taste is really strong. ill try again. Read More

These burgers were very tasty and a welcome change of pace. The beer added a really good tang to them and putting the onions and peppers inside added a real zing. I however took the seeds out of the peppers so they weren't as spicy. Read More

these are really good! not the kind of burger that you would want to have all the time but a really nice change. My roommates loved them! They're really moist and they have a definite beer-y flavour...the onions and peppers are great in them: ) Read More

I also put in a half bottle of sam adams having not read the reviews until afterwards unfortunately they were so soggy they fell apart as I turned them over. I wouldn't make this again but enjoyed the experience. They were way too greasy for my taste! Read More

Nice moist burger. I didn't use onions because I don't like them. I didn't use all the beer which was good because you don't need it all. You could really taste it but I used Guinness so it was all good. Read More

What a disappointment!!! The burgers fell apart and we only used a quarter of a bottle of beer. Also the bread crumbs gave it a very odd texture. This was not the burger we were expecting! Read More

Wild combo for sure! I used 3 lbs of gr. beef and 1 bottle of suds Terrific! I added dried onions and saved the fresh onions for the garnish along with pickled jalapenos. Keeper:):) Thanks John Read More
