Beef Patties with Mushrooms
Total time: 30 minutes
Use wild or exotic mushrooms if you can. It's the season and we may as well take advantage. But even the plain white button or brown cremini will make a delicious sauce.
- 12oz ground beef (360gr mince)
- 1 onion
- 4oz (120gr) mushrooms
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tbs oil
- 2 tbs bread crumbs
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tbs beef stock
- 1 tbs soy sauce
- 1/3 cup (3oz, 90ml) beef stock
- 2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
- 1/3 cup (3oz, 90gr) ketchup
- Finely chop onion, mince garlic.
- Finely chop about 1/4 of the mushrooms. Thickly slice the rest.
- In large nonstick skillet over medium heat sauté 1/2 the onion, the garlic and chopped mushrooms about 5 minutes or until tender.
- Remove from heat and set aside.
- Put bread crumbs, basil, 1 tbs ketchup, soy sauce, and 1 tbs stock in medium bowl and mix well.
- Add the beef and sautéed onion mixture. Mix well - hands work best, and form into 4 patties.
- Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the burgers and sauté, 5 - 7 minutes per side.
- Remove, cover to keep warm.
- Add mushrooms and remaining onion to skillet and sauté about 5 minutes or until tender.
- Add beef stock, mustard and ketchup to pan and bring to a boil, stirring to mix well.
- Return patties to pan. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors and heat patties. Serve.
