In something like a hamburger, replacing a portion of the beef with mushrooms both enhances the flavor of the beef and also stretches the amount of food you can make with just a pound of meat.
1 lb Angus ground beef
5 tbsp Portobello mushrooms (2.5 oz)
5 tbsp King Trumpet mushrooms (2.5 oz)
2 tbsp Button mushrooms (1 oz)
2 tbsp Onion, diced (1 oz)
1 tbsp Tomato, diced (.5 oz)
2 tsp Cilantro, chopped (15 leaves)
1/2 tsp Ginger, chopped
1/2 tsp Garlic, minced
1/2 of one Thai bird chile, chopped (about 1 1/2 tsp)
Spices (1/3 tsp each)
Turmeric, dry ground
Finely chop mushrooms or grind in food processor to roughly the same consistency of the ground beef.
Blend all the ingredients together by hand and form whatever size burgers you choose. Set in the fridge for at least 4 hours before cooking.
Salt lightly on both sides. Grill to desired doneness.
Serve without bread or on a brioche bun.
Makes 24 sliders, or 6–8 burgers depending on size
