The Hubby's Bunless Mushroom Burger
The hubby made this for us for dinner the other night and it was so good!
1/2 lb lean ground beef
2 portabella caps with about a 3 to 4 inch diameter
1/2 tsp granulated garlic (fresh minced garlic may be substituted)
1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
2 tblsp minced onion
2 slices swiss cheese
2 slices ripe tomato
Several leaves butter lettuce (also called boston lettuce)
2 tsp A1 (or whichever you prefer) steak sauce
Mix together the ground beef, pepper, garlic and onion. Split in half and form into two patties. Fry or grill to desired doneness (he did ours to medium well). Sprinkle patties with just a tiny bit of salt if desired.
Fry or grill the mushroom caps until done. Place on plates, gills up. Spread 1 tsp of the steak sauce onto each mushroom cap. Top each with a slice of swiss, a couple lettuce leaves, and then a burger. Place the tomato on top and stick a toothpick through it all. Serve along side sweet potato fries and mixed berry mash over angel food cake. A nice herbal peach iced tea goes well with it too.
Also, I recommend eating the burgers with a knife and fork. If you decide to try picking them up and eating them please post pictures. I'm sure someone will need a good laugh.
