"Beer can" burgers
« on: October 26, 2010, 12:55:24 PM »
Simple really, make a meatball with whatever you want in it, seasoning, green peppers, onions, etc. Make into a patty, put into a pot, fill pot with beer, put pot in fire. Works great on camping trips.

Originally we just cut beer cans in half and made them one at a time, but there was such a demand we got a cheap camping pot and use that. You don't even need a bun, just eat it!

So you're boiling the burger in a pot with beer? That sounds pretty disgusting. I think there's a reason restaurants don't serve boiled hamburgers.

Nah. I think I'll knock this one without giving it a go. Boiled hamburgers don't sound very good at all.

There is some place in the northeast that does steam cooked hamburgers and squares of  steamed cheddar that go on top of them, I remember seeing it on the food network.  I guess it's pretty good

They are extremely good.  If I had a way to reliably generate that much steam with my smoker I'd make them myself.

Well, I do know that White Castle steams their burgers but I'm not 100% sure it's for cooking purposes. It may just be a reheat. I dunno.

Still sounds disgusting.

After cooking their burgers burger king keeps them in a steamer till they are sold.

After burning their burgers, Wendy's puts them in a drawer so that they can be made into their Chili.

Which is delicious.



Beer brats are the shit... Only thing I would be worried about with burgers is that they would get mushy.

Right. That's my concern. Boiled ground beef doesn't sound like it would work out very well.

Beer burgers are good. I baste with it instead of boiling though. Boiled meat is just...well...yuk.
OR you could cook the burger...then simmer in beer after. We do that with gravy for smothered burgers.

When they cook the burgers, I've always seen them cooked on a flat-top grill with onions.  Never 'steamed' so to speak.

When I worked at BK, we could only keep them in the steamer for 30mins to an hour, IIRC.

I wonder if you all read that we were camping when we made these. We don't haul around a grill and kitchen.

That doesn't mean you had to boil them. If you've got a pot, then you've got a flat surface that you can flat top cook them.

If we bring anything that can become a weapon on the camping trips, then just give us enough time to drink the amount of beer required to have a Highlander re-enactment.

  The buns on white castle burgers are steamed the meat and onions are still flat top fried. its what makes a true slider so good.
