American Grilled Beer Burgers Recipe: By Lee Griffith

Talk about a Recipe that is American through and through! Here is an all-American burger recipe I put together recently. I use beer in many of the recipes I develop because it enhances the flavors of a recipe and adds layers of flavor. Be extra patriotic and use an American brew for this recipe!Ingredients:
1.5 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg, beaten
2 cloves minced garlic
1 12 oz. bottle beer
4 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. chili powder
4 tsp. McCormick® Grill Mates® Roasted Garlic Montreal Steak® seasoning
1 tsp. Lawry's® seasoned pepper (or black pepper)
2 tbsp. butter
1.5 cups thinly sliced sweet onion
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. Louisiana hot pepper sauce
1 tsp. yellow mustard
7 or 8 hamburger buns
The burgers:
In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the ground beef, the egg, 1 clove of minced garlic, 3 tsp. of the brown sugar, the chili powder, and two tbsp. of the beer. Make into patties (makes seven or eight small patties). On a well-oiled grill, grill the burgers, sprinkling the Montreal Steak® seasoning and the seasoned pepper on each side of burgers while grilling. Serve on toasted hamburger buns and top with beer braised onion sauce (below).

The beer-braised onion sauce:
Melt the butter in a sauce pan (avoid getting too hot). Add the onions and the remaining clove of minced garlic and sauté for 5-10 minutes. Add half of the remaining beer, and the soy sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, 1 tsp. brown sugar, and yellow mustard. Cook until the beer has been well absorbed into the onions and the onions are slightly brown. Add the rest of the beer and simmer for awhile.
