  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 slices or 2-3 ounces cheese of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • ½ cup beer or water
  • Sauteed onions (optional)
  • Tomato, sliced (optional)
  • Pickles (optional)
  • Lettuce (optional)
  • Fried Eggs
  • Buns (optional)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, Worcestershire Sauce, and salt and pepper to your liking
  2. Divide beef mixture into four balls
  3. Flatten each ball with a plate
  4. Place approximately 1 oz of cheese in the center of two of the circles
  5. Cover with the other two circles, pressing the edges together well, so the cheese stays inside while it is cooking
  6. Pour ½ cup (or the minimum for your pressure cooker) liquid into pot
  7. Insert steam tray
  8. Place burgers on steam tray and turn heat to high
  9. Cover pressure cooker and bring to high pressure
  10. When high pressure is reached, reduce heat to maintain high pressure and set timer for five minutes
  11. When time is up, remove from heat and let pressure come down naturally (with minimum amount of liquid, pressure should come down in just a few minutes)
  12. Remove from pressure cooker
  13. Serve with any of the optional ingredients that you like (or add some of your own!)
