Guinness Burgers


With summer in full swing and many BBQs being lit across the nation, it’s often hard to find something different to cook on the grill. This Guinness burger recipe is an easy recipe, and it’ll produce some of the best burgers you’ll ever try.

Ingredients (to make 8 generous burgers)

  • 1.5lbs of chopped beef (I tend to use 97% beef to get the best burger)
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 large portabella mushroom
  • 0.25lbs of blue cheese
  • 1 jalepeno pepper
  • 0.25 teaspoon of curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley)
  • salt and pepper
  • 6oz of Guinness


Chop the herbs, portabella mushroom, jalepeno pepper and onions as fine as you can – the finer the better. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients well ensuring an even distribution – when adding the Guinnes, add just enough to make the mix damp, but ensure the beef can be formed into patties.

Try not to add too much salt as this can spoil the flavors – you can always add some salt when eating. Form the mixture into eight patties – for best results ensure they are all similar sizes and thickness – the more even the thickness the more chance of getting the desired done-ness.

Cooking Method

The best way to cook these wonderful burgers is on a charcoal grill; add your favorite charcoal to add some additional flavor to the burgers. Cooking on a gas grill is nearly as good. While it will depend on your grill, generally you want to cook the burger on a medium heat for about 5-6 minutes each side to get a medium cooked burger – always cut into one burger to check the done-ness though.

If you must you can fry or even boil these burgers, but for best results you must use the BBQ.


The burger is pretty decent without any garnishes, but you can add a slice of pickle, some cheese, or a slice of tomato if you wish, I like to serve on a toasted bun, but you can eat it as you see fit.


The resulting burger is a little spicy and very filling. The Guinness gives it a very bold and pleasant taste and there is no bitterness. They are by far the best burgers you will try this summer.
