Stout and Cheddar Beef Burgers
Dark Irish stout keeps these beefy burgers moist and flavorful. Sharp cheddar cheese adds a tangy contrast to the robustness of the beer. Top your burger with caramelized onions, if you’d like a sweet note.

Heat grill to medium-high heat.
Combine beef, beer, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl. Divide into 4 equal portions and form into patties about 3/4-inch thick. Lightly brush the hamburgers on both sides with oil.
Grill hamburgers on the preheated grill until a thermometer inserted into the center of each patty reads 155° F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Top the burgers with cheese during the last minute of grilling. Toast the buns off to the side of the grill.
Serve burgers on toasted buns with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles or your favorite condiments.
