48 Beef-Sirloin Burgers, 1/2 Pound Each

For Worcestershire Onions:
  1. Heat oil on a hot griddle, then add onions.
  2. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until evenly caramelized.
  3. Add Worcestershire sauce just prior to removing the onions from the griddle, stirring to ensure Worcestershire is completely absorbed.
  4. Reserve warm.
  5. You can also refrigerate and reserve cold until service.
For Burgers:
  1. Griddle burgers to order, as needed for service, until fully cooked.
To Make A Tavern Burger:
  1. Slather a griddled burger with 1 tablespoon of Merkts Beer Cheese.

Sirloin works great for this tasty burger, but so would ground buffalo, chicken, or even ground turkey.
