About this recipe: A deliciously different burger, made by grilling a burger on the barbecue, topping it with Gruyere cheese and serving it in a bun with sauteed mushrooms.


Serves: 6 

  • 675g lean minced beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned meat tenderiser
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 3/4 (300g) tin chopped mushrooms, drained
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 slices Gruyere cheese
  • 6 burger buns

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat barbecue for medium heat. Lightly oil the cooking grate.
  2. Shape minced beef into 6 burgers. Season with meat tenderiser, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and soy sauce; cook and stir until browned. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Grill burgers for about 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Divide the mushroom mixture evenly amongst the burgers and top each one with a slice of cheese. Cover the barbecue for about 1 minute to allow the cheese to melt. Remove from the barbecue and serve in burger buns.

This is a very good burger. The only thing I would change in the future is to leave out the soy sauce. The soy sauce made this too salty and I think it overwhelmed the yummy gruyere. Thanks for sharing! - 26 Jan 2015
