I like mushrooms on my burger but I don’t like when they slide off. I tried grinding up raw mushrooms to include in the patty, but somehow that didn’t taste right to me.
The solution I’ve hit upon starts with rough chopping the mushrooms, mixing in chopped onions and herbs, and then sautéing this mixture. I then mix this into the patty and get a burger with a wonderful earthy flavor. I like to complement this with a house-made sauce that I have also refined over time.
I’ve made this type of burger several times for family and friends and they all loved it; it’s a universal hit.
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 tbs sriracha
- 3 tbs ketchup
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix all these ingredients in a bowl with a whisk till nice and smooth. Top it with your burger!
The best part about sauce is its sheer customization. Make it unique if you choose to do so!
- 1.5 cup chopped white button mushroom
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1 TBS oil
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tbs oyster sauce
- 1 lbs ground beef
Heat oil in a medium-sized skillet. When the oil is hot, add the chopped mushroom and onion. Saute this mixture till soft. Then, add dried basil, salt, and pepper. Cook until all the moisture is gone. Next, cool down.
In a large bowl, add ground beef, oyster sauce, and the mushroom mixture. Mix all ingredients gently. Do not over mix or your burger might be a bit tough. I used grass-fed 15 percent fat beef. Don’t use more than 20 percent fat beef unless you prefer a greasy burger.
Form this mixture to 4 patties. You can make as thick or as skinny as you like. I made 4 pretty large burgers to fit the buns I’m using.
I placed the burgers in a sheet pan with individual cut parchment paper a size bit bigger than the burger. It makes an easy transfer to the skillet or indoor grill.
Heat an indoor electric grill to about 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the burger to your preference. I like mine medium-well. It could take somewhere between 5 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your burger.
Make sure to add your favorite toppings to your burger!
