Step 1: Get Your Ingredients Together!
1/2 lbs Corned Beef trimmed and ground. ( If your like me and you forget to ask your butcher to grind it you can always do it yourself )
1 lbs of Bratwurst
1craft beer (any will do, Smokey Porters and hoppy Ipas are always good)
*3 oz Cheese
pepper to taste
1 tbs olive oil
Pepper to taste (I really like pepper)
3 oz Cheese
10 slices Texas Toast
*cracked red pepper
*If sauerkraut isn't your thing just dress it up how you prefer.
*are optional ingredients
Step 2: The Grind
Take your Corned beef and cube it
put your cubed pieces in the blender and pulse around ten times. The goal here is not to make paste but to grind it in to pieces that will mix well with the un-cased brats.
* I know your jealous of my awesome snowman plates.
Step 3: Combine Your Meats
Step 4: Making Patties
Grab a handful and divide that in half make two similar sized patties and throw the cheese in between the two pieces and slap em' together.
Form the meat into a patty shape.
Cover and freeze for one to two hours.
Step 5: Cooking With Beer
Heat olive oil in a pan
Make a thumb print in the center of of the burgers.
Once hot drop your patties in only turning once to Brown each side.
Once it is browned add enough beer to cover the bottom of the pan (I used 3/4 of a bottle ) and turn it on low and simmer covered till the internal temperature is 175.
Step 6: Buns and Dressings
Pretzel buns would also be a good choice however I wanted Texas Toast. This will yield 5 Burgers so make ten slices.
Add your cheese pickles mustard(or optional ingredients) and sauerkraut and enjoy!
