Ingredients

  • 1 pound grond chuck beef
  • 1 pound ground sirloin beef

First, in a large mixing bowl add ground chuck and ground sirloin. Add Everglades Seasoning and Worcestershire sauce. Mix the beef and seasonings together for about 1 minute until well mixed. Form the beef into 4 large equal sized patties and place on a cutting board. Add salt and pepper to the tops of the patties. Preheat your grill to 400 – 500 degrees and if you have any smoke chips or wood, use Mesquite. Thoroughly clean the mushroom slices removing all dirt. Add the mushrooms to a cast iron skillet. Add 1/2 stick of butter (4 tablespoons) to the skillet. Coat the mushrooms with soy sauce and season with Everglades seasoning. When the grill reaches temperature, add the skillet. Next melt 1/2 stick of butter and brush the butter onto freshly sliced burger buns. Next place the burger patties on the grill and cook for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes, flip the burgers and cook for another 8 minutes. Be sure to stir the mushrooms occasionally. After 8 minutes, move the burgers to the top rack of your grill and cook another 8 minutes. Next, flip the patties again and then add 2 slices of Swiss cheese to each burger. At this point we will cook the burgers about another 2 – 3 minutes. Place the buns on the grill surface and cook for 2 minutes max, making sure to avoid direct flame. Remove the buns from the grill, place the burger patties on the buns and spoon on some mushroom toppings! Enjoy!
