One of the best things about this recipe is it leaves you with leftover beer to dispose of, but the best thing is the flavor. These burgers have a strong, beefy flavor that is simply fantastic. Give them a try soon. One piece of advice, adjust the amounts of bread crumbs to get the burger firm enough for the grill.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/3 cup onion (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup ​stout beer (flat)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns

Steps to Make It

Combine meat, onions, garlic, eggs, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, beer, and seasonings in a large bowl.

Shape mixture into patties about 3/4 of an inch thick.

Preheat grill for medium heat. Place patties on the grill rack and cook for 7-9 minutes per side. Once cooked (reaching an internal temperature of 165 F), remove from heat and place patties onto buns.

Top with your favorite condiments and enjoy.
