How to Prepare BGE Oberon Beer Caramelized Onions
Start out by slicing the red onion.
In a large skillet or sauce pan add butter and set the heat to medium.
Once melted add 1 teaspoon of the marinade mix and the sliced onion.
Cook and stir until the onions are golden brown which is usually about 7 minutes.
Once golden brown stir in 2 Tablespoons of Oberon (or beer of choice) and the brown sugar.
Stir and cook for 2 minutes or until the majority of the beer has evaporated. Set aside and proceed with preparing the beer burgers.
How to Prepare BGE Oberon Beer Burgers
In a bowl mix the remaining marinade mix, 1/3 cup of Oberon (or beer of choice) and Worcestershire sauce until well blended. Add ground beef, mix in but don’t overwork the meat and shape into what ever size patties you prefer.
Put a probe in the biggest and the smallest patty to prevent opening the lid to check the temperature.
Let the Oberon beer burgers cook until the internal temperature reaches 135-140 degrees and then give them a flip. Close the lid and let them continue to cook until 155 degrees.
Once 155 degrees is reached throw the cheese on them (or some hot dogs if you are cooking for kids as well like I am here).
Pull the burgers when then internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. 160 degrees is the minimum temperature for ground beef according to the USDA.
Set the bun on the grill for about 30 seconds to give it a good color with a little crisp and add the patty to it.
Put the Oberon beer caramelized onion on the burger. Enjoy the Big Green Egg Oberon Beer Burger W/ Caramelized Onions!
