I could totally live without meat. It’s not a must have for my diet but my boyfriend on the other had needs some sort of meat at every meal. It can sometimes be hard to cook for the both of us when all I want is veggies. I’m not a short order cook and I’m not making completely separate meals for each of us. I came up with this recipe as a way to satisfy us both. And it totally does. The marinated mushrooms are insanely good. I add a hamburger patty to the grill for him. It doesn’t add much work to the recipe but we both get what we need without sacrificing flavor.
2 portobello mushrooms
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 hamburger pattie
Mix the soy sauce, garlic chili sauce and the olive oil in a small bowl to create a marinade.
Place the mushroom tops in a shallow dish like a 13x9x3 inch casserole dish.
Pour the soy sauce mixture over the mushrooms. Make sure they are covered in the marinade and let them sit for about 15 minutes.
While the mushrooms are marinating, prepare the grill and your toppings.
Turn the grill on to medium.
Lightly butter both sides of the bun.
When the grill hot, add the hamburger, mushrooms and burger buns.
The buns only need a few minutes to warm up and get a few grill marks.
If you’re using a thin burger patty, then it only needs to cook about 2 minutes on each side and will actually cook faster than the mushrooms.
The mushrooms need at least 3 minutes on each side to cook all the way through.
Once the buns, burger and mushrooms are finished cooking you need to assemble the burgers.
For his burger, add avocado, cheese, tomatoes, pickles, hamburger patty and a mushroom cap. For her burger, add all of the same ingredients except for the hamburger.
Serve with your favorite sides.
