Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped button mushrooms
  • 3 Tbsp red wine
  • 1/4 cup fine bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lb 93% lean ground beef

Directions

  1. Rehydrate porcini mushrooms: In a small saucepan, add porcini mushrooms and just enough boiling water to cover. Let mushrooms rest for 30 minutes. Drain mushrooms.
  2. Lightly coat a grill rack or broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray and preheat grill or broiler.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion, button mushrooms and porcini mushrooms and sauté about 2 minutes, or until onion is softened and mushroom juices are released. Add 2 tablespoons of red wine and sauté, scraping up the brown bits until wine evaporates. Add bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper and cook until mixture is dry, about 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer mushroom mixture and 1 tablespoon red wine to a blender and pulse mixture until just blended. In a large bowl, add ground beef, mushroom mixture and pepper to taste. Form mixture into 4 patties.
  5. Grill burgers (or broil 4 inches from heat), about 8 minutes, turning once, until cooked medium well.????
