Notes

Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Packaged coleslaw mix or shredded lettuce may be substituted for the shredded cabbage.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 Cup beer
  • 1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Cup thinly sliced cabbage
  • 4 toasted hamburger buns, split

Directions

To prepare barbecue sauce, combine brown sugar, mustard, beer and vinegar in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 to 17 minutes until thickened and reduced in to 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally.

Lightly shape Ground Beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place bun, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted.

Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce on bottom of each bun; top with burger. Evenly spoon remaining sauce on burger. Evenly top burgers with cabbage. Close sandwiches.
