Shopping List

  • 1 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef (80% lean / 20% fat)
  • 1/2 Pound Ground Pork
  • 1/2 Medium Red Onion - Chopped Finely
  • 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Sriracha (more or less to taste)
  • Freshly Ground Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 Cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Beer ( I like brown, but use what you like!)
  • Melting Cheese Slices (I like white American but a sharp cheddar works great, too!)



  1. Heat an outdoor grill to a high heat or until you can hold your hand an inch over the grate for about a second.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and (here comes the fun part), squish the mixture together using your hands until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Divide into about 8 round balls (or 6 if you’re feeding teenagers). Then, using your fingers, flatten out each ball into a well-formed burger. Let the burgers “hang out” for an hour.
  4. Place the burgers on the grill in a single layer and cook for about two minutes then flip them and continue cooking for another 2 minutes. 3 to 4 minutes is medium rare and 5 to 6 minutes is well done.
  5. Place a slice of cheese on top midway through cooking. And whatever you do, don’t flatten the burger with a spatula.
  6. Assemble the burgers on a bun and serve them up!
