Sautéed mushrooms and a splash of red wine keep these burgers marvellously juicy.


Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 tbsp butter
  • 227-g pkg sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 500 g medium ground beef
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 tbsp fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

Instructions

  • Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in a large non-stick frying pan set over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms. Sauté until golden around edges, 4 to 6 min. Add more butter, if needed. Stir in garlic, then wine. Stir often until completely absorbed, 2 min. If not using wine, remove pan from heat after stirring in garlic. Turn mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until cool, 8 to 10 min.
  • Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium. Chop half the mushroom mixture and place in a large bowl. Crumble in beef. Mix in sour cream, bread crumbs and seasonings.
  • Shape into 4 burgers about ½ in. (1 cm) thick. To prevent puffing up when grilling, use your thumb to make a shallow depression in centre of each. Barbecue with lid closed until burgers are cooked through, 5 to 8 min per side. Top with remaining mushrooms and more sour cream, if you wish.
