Take marinade and drop 2 teaspoons of marinade on top of beef Pattie along with slat and pepper Turn over and do the other side Let set in fridge for 1 hour. Take narrowed julienne sliced onions and put into the same frying pan as mushrooms were cooked in, Take 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and fry onions until golden brown and caramelized. If a trace of oil is still left keep that for burgers, use same pan as with out washing it to get flavor from the carmelization. Set aside Can either sauté in it pan or grill but if sautéing must get pan very hot. AND ONLY TURN ONCE. and do not smash patties with a spatula. This will cause them to dry out. Sautéing: You may need another tablespoon of olive oil and if so coat pan in olive oil and make sure you get it up to the sides and wipe away access with paper towel. Place ground beef patties in very hot pan, and cook for 6 minutes on each side. If using grill, grill 4-5 minutes on each side to 160 degrees. Put your burger on a delicious round freshly baked roll, either Kaiser or Egg. Cut roll Add the shroomburger Add a slice of tomato Add sautéed onions on top. Cut in half. Bite in…….. DELICIOUS
