Drunken Aussie Beef Burgers
Our iconic Aussie burger gets a drunken make over with a beer spiked juicy beef burger patty, layered with crispy bacon, caramelised pineapple, melted cheese, fried onion rings, sweet beetroot, ripened tomatoes and a fried egg. Drunken Aussie Beef Burgers.
Steaming hot burger patties fresh off the pan, made with an Aussie staple: beer. And since we love our beer so much, I thought, ‘heeeyyyyy….add it into the burger’! Have I lost you? Stay with me.
The one burger I always order and forever when we go everywhere — basically a burger on steroids. There’s so many good flavours that go into this burger, the usual calorie and fat content is enough to scare anyone. So, I lightened it up.
And ladies and gentlemen…the best burger to warm the shackles of your heart.
Serve with — um — extra beer and enjoy this burger with your whole entire family. MATE!

- 500 g | 1lb extra lean beef mince (*See Notes)
- 2 cloves garlic , crushed
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup | 80ml of your favourite beer/lager
- salt and pepper to season
- 4 medium eggs
- 4 shortcut bacon pieces , fat removed
- 1/2 onion , thinly sliced
- 4 slices pineapple canned in natural juice
- Handful of rocket/arugula (or lettuce)
- 8 slices beetroot
- 4 slices cheese of choice (I use fat-free Cheddar)
- 1 tomato , sliced and divided
- 4 medium bread rolls of choice , halved
- Tomato sauce
- Mayonnaise (optional)
Combine meat together with the garlic, sauce and lager. Mix well with your hands for about a minute, until the meat has combined with the other ingredients. Divide meat mixture into 4 parts and firmly mould them into round patties about 1-inch thick.
Heat a grill pan/skillet on medium-high heat. Sear hamburgers on both sides until golden and cooked to your liking.
While the burgers are frying, fry the onion and bacon in a separate pan, until the onion is transparent and fragrant and the bacon is crispy on both sides.
Transfer bacon and onion onto a paper towel; wipe pan over; add a drizzle of oil and fry the eggs until cooked to your liking.
When the burger patties are done, transfer them onto a warmed plate; wipe pan over with a paper towel; and fry the pineapple rings (about 1 minute each side until caramelised).
Build your burgers! Layer the base of each bun with the lettuce/arugula, beetroot slices, burger patties, cheese, pineapple rings, bacon, onion rings, tomato slices and the fried egg. Drizzle with tomato sauce and (optional) mayonnaise; top with remaining bun piece and serve!
