Beer Braised Onions
1 Tablespoon butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup beer
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet. Add the onion slices and saute, stirring frequently for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender. Add the beer and sugar and continue cooking until the liquid is absorbed and the onions are slightly golden.
Preheat grill on high. In a small bowl, thoroughly but gently mix ground beef, garlic, pepper, beer, mustard, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties 1" thick. Place on grill and turn heat to medium. Grill 4 to 6 minutes per side, cooking to desired doneness. Place cheese on top of burger to melt. Top with Beer Braised Onions. Serve on toasted bun.
