This Shiitake Mushroom Burger is made with ground beef, button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, Vidalia onions, and cheese.
- 2 pounds of ground beef
- 1 pound of fresh shiitake mushroom
- 1 ounce of dried shitake mushrooms
- 1 large sweet Vidalia onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- 6 slices of cheddar or Swiss cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Start by pulsing the dried shiitake mushroom in a food processor until it turns into a powder.
- Add the ground beef into a bowl along with the mushroom powder, garlic powder, onion powder, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. With your hands, mix until everything is combined.
- Form the patties, they should be about 5-6 patties!
- Make the mushroom and onion toppings. In a saucepan on medium high heat, add the butter and 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. When the butter melts, add the onion and stirring for about 3 minutes. Add the fresh mushrooms and sauté for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn heat to low and keep sautéing for 10 more minutes.
- Grill the burgers for about 5-8 minutes per side. You should cut the thickest patty and check the inside to see if you need to cook for longer.
- When the burgers are almost done, add the cheese and allow to melt.
- Optional: grill the buns for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side before serving!
- Assemble the burgers and top with the sautéed mushroom and onions!
- Although it may seem there too much mushroom powder, its not that much!
- Cut the thickest patty to check if it is cooked all the way through.
