How to Make Caramelized Onions with BGE Oberon Beer


To begin, slice the red onion.


Set the heat to medium in a large skillet or sauce pan with butter.

Add 1 teaspoon of the marinade mix and the chopped onion after the butter has melted.


Cook, stirring often, until the onions are golden brown, approximately 7 minutes.


Stir in 2 Tablespoons Oberon (or your favorite beer) and the brown sugar once golden brown.


Stir and simmer for another 2 minutes, or until the beer has almost evaporated. Set aside and get started on the beer burgers.

BGE Oberon Beer Burgers: How to Make Them


Combine the remaining marinade mix, 1/3 cup Oberon (or other beer of choice), and Worcestershire sauce in a mixing bowl. Mix in the ground beef but don’t overwork it, and form into whatever size patties you like.

To avoid opening the lid to monitor the temperature, place a probe in the largest and smallest patties.


Allow the Oberon beer burgers to cook until they reach an internal temperature of 135-140 degrees before flipping. Close the cover and cook until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees.


Put the cheese on them once the temperature reaches 155 degrees (or some hot dogs if you are cooking for kids as well like I am here).


When the internal temperature of the burgers reaches 160 degrees, remove them from the oven. According to the USDA, the minimum temperature for ground beef is 160 degrees.


Place the bread on the grill for approximately 30 seconds to give it a nice color and crisp, then top with the burger.


Place the caramelized Oberon beer onion atop the burger. Enjoy the Oberon Beer Burger with Caramelized Onions from the Big Green Egg!
