Course: Main Course, Sandwich
Cuisine: American, Irish
Servings: 4


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp minced white onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup Guinness beer
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices aged Irish cheddar, such as Kerrygold
  • 8 sliced thick cut bacon, cooked crisp
  • 4 English muffins, sliced & toasted


  • Add the ingredients, ground beef through salt & pepper, to a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix everything together, JUST until evenly combined. 
  • Form the meat mixture into 4 patties or easy size, and transfer them to a pan.  Use syran wrap to cover the pan, and refrigerate the patties for an hour.
  • Lightly oil a cast iron skillet, and heat over medium high heat. Cook the patties, flipping as needed until lightly charred on the outside and cooked to your preferred level of 'done'.
  • Remove the skillet from heat, and add sliced cheese. Let the patties rest just until the cheese has begun to melt. 
  • Transfer the patties to the English muffins, top with bacon, and any other desired toppings- serve immediately.
