Touring the USA (Northwest) – Chipotle Mushroom Burger

Mix 2 lbs. lean ground beef with 3 Tbsp. Sweet Heat Addiction, Smokey Red Sensation or Fresh Cream Indulgence and 1 tsp. salt.  Pat into burgers and grill. 

Mushrooms

  • 1 lb. mushrooms, cleaned and chopped (to roughly the same size).   Do not wash mushrooms, but wipe down with a damp cloth, otherwise they can become soggy.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

Heat the oil in a low-sided saucepan or skillet.  Use medium-high heat.  Be careful not to heat the oil too much, or it can ruin the recipe.  Spread the oil around by moving the pan.

Add the minced garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.  Add the mushrooms and cook until they are hot and have turned a darker brown color.  Move around with a wooden spatula once one side seems done.  This usually takes about 5 minutes.  Do not overcook and use a big enough pan so that the mushrooms are not overcrowded, so that they don’t stew in their own juices.   If you are cooking a lot of mushrooms, cook them in batches instead of one large batch.

Spoon the mushrooms onto the burgers and serve.
