1/2 Photos of Smoky Beer Burgers With Creamy Mustard Sauce
Nice change of pace from regular burgers, they have their own rich and unique delicious flavor! Although I think it is best to shred the cheese in the burger, I have also just placed sliced cheese on the top of the burgers. Sharp cheddar cheese works great too. Because these burgers are so moist, gently put them on the grill and then don't touch until ready to flip. Make sure that the burgers are fully cooked on the first side prior to flipping. Feel free to add some dry bread crumbs if they look too moist, but mine firmed up just fine. Prep time does not include refrigeration time. Be sure you bring a good appetite, these burgers are huge!

My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/2-2 lbs lean ground sirloin
- 1/4 lb smoked gouda cheese, shredded
- 1 medium onion
- 2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika, 2/3 palm full
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/3 palm full
- grill seasoning (recommend Montreal Steak Seasoning)
- coarse salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, grated or finely minced
- 3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 4 ounces bottled beer
- extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Creamy Mustard Sauce
- 1Preheat grill over medium-high heat.
- 2Place the meat in a bowl and add the shredded cheese.
- 3Peel the onion and halve it.
- 4Grate about 3 to 4 tablespoons of onion directly over the meat into the bowl. Finely chop the remaining onion and reserve for topping.
- 5Add spices to meat: paprika, cumin and about 1 tablespoon of grill seasoning and/or some salt and pepper. Add garlic, parsley and Worcestershire and beer.
- 6Form 4 large patties making a large thumbprint indentation in the middle of each burger, because burgers plump when you cook them so this will prevent burger bulge.
- 7Refrigerate for 1 hour. Pull them out about 30 min before grilling. Drizzle a little olive oil over the burgers then grill about 4 minutes on each side for medium rare, 5 minutes on each side for medium and 6 to 7 minutes on each side for well done.
- 8Mix mustard and sour cream with dill.
- 9Serve patties on bun bottoms and top with lettuce, pickles, chopped raw onion and anything else you like. Slather bun tops with sauce and serve.
