Burger Recipe

  1. Over medium heat in a saute pan heat oil. Add mushrooms, salt, pepper, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, and garlic. Cook until mushrooms are tender and soft. Set aside.
  2. Heat oven or grill to 400. In a bowl, combine ground beef, steak seasoning and 1 cup of shredded Queen Bee Porcini. Form a medium thickness patty and press the beer can in the middle of patty to create an indentation in the patty.

  3. Work the patty up and around the beer can bottom until about 1 1/2 inches up from the bottom of the can. You're basically making a little "patty bowl". Make sure there is a good thickness on the bottom of the patty. Carefully remove patty from the can. You should have a good indent in the patty. Fill the patty indentation with cooked mushrooms and grill or bake in oven until burger registers an internal temp of 155 degrees F. Sprinkle patties with cheese and cook until melted.
  4. Now it's time to assemble the burgers! Toast your buns (if you'd like) and now pile on the red onions, aioli, tomato, lettuce.
