Mushroom Merlot Burger

Willy ran on to this hamburger recipe at one of his favorite spots on cooking beef, Beef - Its What for Dinner!

Lots of good beef recipes there! Check this one out!


Makes 4 servings.

1 pound ground beef (95% lean)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

4 large portobello mushrooms

4 slices French bread, cut diagonally 1/2 inch thick

2 ounces goat cheese (1/2 cup)

4 romaine lettuce leaves

Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


1 teaspoon olive oil

2 tablespoons minced shallots

1 cup Merlot or other dry red wine

1/4 cup ready-to-serve beef broth

2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped

1 tablespoon butter

2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


1. To prepare sauce, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add shallots; cook and stir 6 to 8 minutes or until caramelized. Stir in wine, broth and thyme. Cook over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Combine butter and flour; whisk into sauce. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover; keep warm.
2. Combine ground beef, 2 tablespoons parsley, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Set aside.
3. Place mushrooms on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; grill, uncovered, 16 to 18 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. About 10 minutes before mushrooms are done, move mushrooms to outer edge of grid. Place patties in center of grid; grill 11 to 13 minutes, turning occasionally, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers (160°F). Place bread slices on grid; grill until toasted, turning once.
4. Reheat sauce, if necessary. Spread 1/2 of cheese on toasted bread slices. Top each with lettuce leaf, mushroom and burger; drizzle evenly with sauce. Crumble remaining goat cheese over tops; sprinkle with parsley, as desired.

Cook's Notes
Cook’s Tip: To broil, place patties and mushrooms on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil patties 10 to 12, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers (160°F). Broil mushrooms 16 to 18 minutes or until tender, turning once.
