Perfect Hamburger Steak with Caramelized Mushrooms

This is just one of several recipes in my "Friday Night Special" dinner.
(Click for entire menu)

Here is my recipe:

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup Ener-G bread crumbs
1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
2¼ pounds lean ground chuck
1 tablespoons onion flakes
1 teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoons celery seeds
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 eggs, slightly beaten

Here is how I did it:

Melt butter in medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Place bread crumbs and Italian seasoning in skillet with melted butter. Stir until lightly browned and toasted, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

Place ground chuck in large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, break into small pieces. Add seasoned bread crumbs, onion flakes, garlic salt, celery seeds, Worcestershire sauce and egg. Mix thoroughly. Using a ½-cup ice cream scoop, place two scoops full of into your hand. Roll mixture into a ball. Place ball on tray lined with wax paper and flatten to about 1-inch thick. Be careful not to over work mixture. Continue until all meat mixture is used.

Burgers may be cooked either in a skillet or on a grill. Either way, cook over medium high heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until surface is brown and juice runs clear. Do not over cook. Mashing burgers during the cooking process with the back of a spatula will also make them tough and dry.

Caramelized Mushrooms

Here is my recipe:

6 medium mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon La Choy soy sauce (gluten free)

Here is how I did it:

Melt butter in medium skillet over medium heat. Place sliced mushrooms in melted butter and turn heat to medium low. Stirring occasionally, cook until mushroom slices are about one-half the original size and are golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes per side. Add soy sauce during the last five minutes. If the mushrooms begin to brown too quickly, turn heat to low.

Servings: 4
