Here is what you will need to make these Beer Can Burgers: 

  • ground beef
  • Budweiser Steak and Burger Sauce
  • 1 can Budweiser Beer
  • garlic powder
  • red pepper, chopped
  • red onion, chopped
  • bella mushrooms, chopped
  • pepper jack cheese, sliced
  • Olive oil


Add Budweiser Brewmaster’s Premium Steak & Burger Sauce to ground beef. Made with Budweiser beer, the Steak & Burger Sauce has never met a flame-grilled hunk of beef it didn’t love. Made with Budweiser beer and the perfect blend of spices, this bold sauce is a true original.

Now that it’s almost summer, Budweiser Sauces are a great compliment to any grill or cookout.

TASTE THE BUDWEISER DIFFERENCE! Like the famous Budweiser beer, this genuine line of sauces contains only the finest ingredients for a truly exceptional taste experience. Budweiser Executive Chefs, in conjunction with the Brewmasters of Anheuser-Busch, have perfected the sauce recipes, assuring that the cooking experience is the best it can be. Taste the difference that only a premium sauce with the Budweiser name can deliver.

Add garlic powder for some zest!

Mix it all up with your hands.

You can stuff these Beer Can Burgers with whatever you want. I stuffed these burgers with Budweiser Brewmaster’s Premium Steak and Burger Sauce, mushrooms, red onions, red pepper and Pepper Jack cheese, all wrapped in a couple slices of bacon.

Shape beef mixture into a big ball. Push a can of Budweiser down into the ball so that the beef comes up around the can about a half an inch. Wrap bacon around beef mixture.

 Saute veggies in a pan with a tbsp. of olive oil until soft.

Spoon sauteed veggies into burger hole.




These are big burgers, so I wrapped them in two slices of bacon. Once stuffed, place on the grill and grill until the burger and bacon are cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. The cheese gets nice and golden and the burger gets infused with incredibly tasty bacon! 

Add some pepper jack cheese.

Let the cheese cook until it is melty and gooey.

Place it on a plate and serve with a salad or coleslaw.

It’s making me hungry again just looking at that crispy bacon and gooey cheese!

Get ready to dig in! Make sure to have lots of napkins! Serve it with an ice-cold Budweiser Beer!

Beer can burgers stuffed with your favorite ingredients covered in bacon and melted cheese!

Look at how thick and juicy that burger is!

Beer Can Burgers will be your favorite summertime meal!
