Preheat barbecue for medium heat. Lightly oil the cooking grate.
Shape minced beef into 6 burgers. Season with meat tenderiser, salt and pepper. Set aside.
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.
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.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock meat tenderiser, you will find it in Chinese/Indian speciality shops or online.
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
