A CookTale
Whoever thought I’d write about a Burger? Well, this was a very special Burger. Beside top flight Chuck Beef, finely sliced Portobello Mushrooms and thinly sliced Provolone Cheese were mixed in. Other combinations could be, Bacon and Cheddar, or Onions and Swiss Cheese. Or use your imagination, but don’t run wild.
12 Ounces of first grade Ground Chuck
1 Medium Portobello Mushroom finely sliced into ribbons
1 Slice of Povolone Cheese, finely sliced into ribbons
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
1 TB of EVOO
1 TB of Butter for the frying pan
1. In a large bowl, add the Chuck, Portobello Mushroom, Provolone Cheese & Salt & Pepper.
2. As gently as possible mix it all together, but do not press it together. Form into two 1″ thick Burgers. About 6 ounces each.
3. Heat a frying pan to very hot & add the Butter, when it stops sizzling, Add the Burgers.
Cook for 3 minutes on side one, 2 minutes on side two. For medium rare. The center should still be pink & juicy. Do not dry it out by over cooking.
4. Plate & enjoy a truly savory Burger.
