This recipe was created by Andi Johnson at New Seasons Market - Happy Valley store. She made it for a day when I was handing out samples of Hotmaple in the store. People flocked into from the parking lot, and headed directly to the counter where we were serving this item. It was a hit!
We went light on the Hotmaple in this recipe to make it good for a wide variety of people with different spice tolerances. If you like it hot, simply add more Hotmaple Smokey Habanero!
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, grated
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbsp Hotmaple Smokey Habanero
1/4 c. IPA-style beer (We used Terminal Gravity, but you can use any IPA-style beer you like)
Salt and Pepper as desired
1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat
2. Mix the ground beef, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Hotmaple Smokey Habanero, salt and pepper in a bowl.
3. Mix in the beer until fully absorbed by the meat mixture.
4. Form into patties, and cook on pre-heated grill until burgers are done to your desired level. Add toppings, such as cheese, lettuce, tomatoes etc.
