½poundcreminiwhite button, or baby bella mushrooms, cleaned with a damp towel
2teaspoonsof your favorite steak seasoning
2teaspoonsof reduced sodium soy sauce
1pound90/10 ground beef
Oil for the patties/grill
Desired burger toppings and condiments
Finely chop the mushrooms, either by hand or in a food processor. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the steak seasoning, Worcestershire, and soy sauce. Stir in the chopped mushrooms.
Add the ground beef to the mushroom mixture and, using a light touch, gently incorporate the ingredients with your hands.
Shape the beef mixture into 5-6 patties, depending on the desired size, and make the patties slightly thinner in the middle.
Brush or spray oil on one side of the burger patties. Cook in a 450℉ kamado grill or over medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet for 6-7 minutes. Brush the patties with oil again prior to flipping. Cook an additional 6-7 minutes or until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 155℉.
Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter. Cover loosely with foil and let the burgers rest for about 5 minutes before topping and serving as desired.
