  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons stout or porter
  • 2 slices Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce

  1. 1. Heat grill to medium-high. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, salt, pepper and cayenne. Mix until well combined. Shape into 2 patties and use your thumbs to create a shallow well in the center of each patty.
  2. 2. Place patties on the grill indent-side up and pour a tablespoon of beer into each well. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, flip, and grill until desired doneness (approximately 3 minutes). Top each patty with cheese and allow cheese to melt (approximately 1 minute).
