This past Saturday I had some friends over to watch Mats’ victorious return to Toronto. To celebrate the Canucks glorious victory, I made Stout Burgers (thanks for the recipe Dave). Sadly, I forgot to take pictures, but I can tell you they were delicious. We also found the burgers to be giant. The recipe calls for only six burgers, weighing in at just under a half pound each. Needless to say, they were a mouth full. I can’t honestly say I noticed the Stout in the burgers, but the beer did help keep the patties nice and moist. They were also very spicy, which I enjoyed, but others may not. In any case, if you like burgers, I recommend giving the recipe a try.
- Olive oil (to saute)
- 2.5 lb. of ground beef
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
- 6 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 2 tbsp thyme
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1 egg
- 1 bottle of Stout
- 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
1. Saute onion, peppers, garlic, thyme and oregano over medium heat until onion is translucent. Refrigerate until cool.
2. Stir together ground beef, sauteed mixture (step 1) and egg until blended thoroughly
3. Stir in Guinness slowly. Add parsley, celery salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate 3 hours.
4. Form meat mixture into 6 patties. Cook on grill at 375*F, turning until well-done (approx. 7-10 mins. each side). Don’t “squish” burgers to grill, you’ll lose the juices.
