Grilled Burgers with Hoisin-Stout Beer Sauce

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 Tablespoons hoisin sauce, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup Stout Beer
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 4 hamburger rolls, toasted or lightly grilled
  • 12 cucumber slices, thinly sliced
  • 4 leaves lettuce

    Make burgers by gently kneading together ground beef, 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, 1 clove minced garlic, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties.

    Prepare grill, or preheat broiler.

    While grill or oven is heating, make sauce. In small saucepan, warm sesame oil over low heat. Stir in 2 cloves minced garlic and onion pieces; cook until aromatic, about 2 minutes. Stir in 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce, soy sauce and Stout Beer. In small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in rice wine vinegar; stir into Beer sauce. Increase heat to medium; bring sauce to a simmer. Let bubble for about 2 minutes until well thickened. Set aside until ready to serve.

    Grill burgers to desired doneness. Place burgers on rolls; brush with sauce. Top with cucumbers and lettuce leaves. Serve remaining sauce on the side, if desired.

    Serves 4.
